Just wanted to post an update as ive had alot of people asking how my twins have been going after their intensive testing. I also wanted to share some extra special good news  grin.gif

The girls have been all cleared for the following which they were tested for - CF, Mitochrondria (which jake died of) liver disease and other brain conditions. They do have allergies but those are easily managable. They are doing amazingly well. They now take formula very well and eat like troopers. Yes they are still TINY (only just 7kgs but tall) but very healthy. They sleep through most nights and each have 3 teeth! They are crawling well and Lucy is on her way to walking! Im so proud of them  wub.gif

Now for some exciting news - we are expecting baby #5!! (or #5 & 6  ffear.gif)

We are very surprised!! Now for the 2-3 week wait until a scan to see how many will be joining us  hheart.gif

Congrats. original.gif

Congratulations to your family - both on the new additions and the good news about your girls.

As for them being TINY, my 16mo has only just reached 8kg - I look at the positve of it makes it easier to carry her about. original.gif

It's wonderful to hear that your twins are going so well now & that they have passed all the medical tests - I remember feeling so sorry for you a couple of months back when everything was so nightmarish for you.
