Colt and Kate

Thursday August 19th, my sister-in-law was put on full bed rest. Her blood pressure was very very high. She is now at 32 weeks, and the babies are doing great. Friday august 20th, my mom and I go to their house to wash baby clothes and Kim is not feeling well. The Doctor's office called and the tests came back showing damage to her liver, and if blood pressure diastolic is over 95 come to L&D asap. She checked the blood pressure and was at 106, but didn't want to go to the hospital, but when JP came in Friday afternoon, they were told to go to hospital for monitoring. A few hours later, Kim was care flighted to Dallas Pres. Hospital. Me, Jen, Danna, Jason, our parents and Kim's waited patiently all night in the most uncomfortable chairs(haha) and about 4 am John came down stairs and said the babies are here. It was worth all the waiting, the babies are so precious!

Colton John, born first 3 lbs and .06 oz, 16 1/2 ". John said he looked like a frog when he came out, long and skinny and all legs.
Kathryn Grace 3 lbs 6 oz, 16 1/2". Their features are very similar. They have long long legs, long fingers, long toes and the cutest little noses!!!

My new nephew and niece are fighting strong. They are both on oxygen, Colt is on a ventilator and has tubes in both lungs and is being sedated to not fight the vent. and to get much needed rest to get strong and healthy. Kate is a little more mature than Colt, but now being treated for jaundice, and she sucked on a pappy last night. She seems to have attitude already, John is calling her little Jennifer. Kim is having blood pressure problems, but is doing really well, and she is such a good mommy! Please continue to pray for Kim and John and their new little bundles of joy!
