Day 25 - Sunday July 29, 2007

It was a year ago today that Cris and I got married. Who would believe that exactly a year later we would be blessed with two fine strong young sons? I always dreamed of getting pregnant with twins and hoped so much to be blessed with children early in our marriage...and here I am - with my dreams answered. Perspective (which I need often)...we are so very blessed and lucky - we will get through this.

Both boys remained stable today. Again, it was quite a quiet today. Saying that, it was also quite an emotional day. Concerns continue regarding Ciaran following his episode three weeks ago. The doctors are monitoring a number of different measurements closely to see if intervention is necessary for him. This is where we are looking at fear in the face everyday. We are hoping that the things they are monitoring will work themselves out - although at the same time, we are aware that timely intervention is necessary to avoid further complications. Tomorrow there is another head ultra sound and the doctors will review potential next steps based on the evidence. We are praying that Ciaran will work things out on his own - he never ceases to amaze either or hopefully he has another trick up his sleeve.

Both boys are looking really healthy. They are getting bigger everyday...we are so proud and pleased of their progress to date. Thanks for your continued positive vibes and prayers - please say a little extra prayer for Ciaran today - we would appreciate it :)

with love and gratitude,

cris, liza, ciaran and shay

Dear Liza, Cris, and your two beautiful baby boys.

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful babies Liza and Happy Anniversary to you both. I am sure that if your babies are anything like you Liza (tremendous spirit, strong willed, and a huge heart) they will overcome any obstacle life offers them.

You are all in my heart and prayers,
