The Parent Perspective

So Joe and I thought that we were given the ultimate test as a "tag team" when we were blessed with twins but little did we know.........The day has certainly been full starting with Alison and I being dropped off at admitting and Stephen and Joe venturing to the transplant clinic. After several appts. for Stephen we were back together for a short time, then more tests for Alison and appts. for Stephen. Finally, the "boys" left and Alison was sound asleep. The evening flew by with phone calls, more visits from doctors and a "little" scare that called for a cat scan-scare averted and now it's time to settle down for the night. Alison got a little "help" to sleep, we'll see how the mom does. I pray my "boys" will get a good night's sleep. I hope my JenJen will too. It's so hard to not be able to all be together. The morning can't come soon enough. Thank you all for your thoughts, good wishes and most importantly, your prayers.
Love, Karen
