Hey all - I have a college friend who just delivered twins at 36 weeks gestation yesterday. The girls were smaller than they thought (Olivia is 5lbs and Shaun is 3.4lbs) Both are having some challenges, are in the NICU with feeding tubes and they are doing all sorts of scary testing right now.

My friend had a c-section, so can't get out of bed to see them, and the doctors aren't being very forthcoming with info yet.....

If you could, could you just take a moment and send a prayer or positive thought to Shaun, Olivia and their parents? I believe this is powerful and would really appreciate it.

Thanks, Michelle, Mom to Katie in Chicago

Thanks you guys, I appreciate it.

Little Olivia is now in Mom's room, w/o a feeding tube. Shaun, the smaller of the twins, has had the feeding tube removed, hoping she'll feed and they have downgraded her to a level 3 Nicu patient. The tests for Cystic Fibrosis and some other bloodwork will take some time.

I appreciate your support. I'll know more tomorrow when i visit Mom.

Thanks again for your hope and prayers. Michelle
