Dear Devoted Pookieville Supporters,
I am sorry I haven't yet posted part 5 of The Twin Birth Story. I quite possibly had a condition at the birth called Gestational Ovarian Theca-Lutein Cysts that caused my milk to be delayed in coming in. I've been pumping like crazy. I'm nearly up to the full amount that the twins need now-- now that they are two months old. However, they both have a condition called "posterior tongue-tie" and they also have very tights jaws that prevent them from opening their mouths very far. So it is impossible to nurse. But I have not given up.
On Tuesday the babies have an appointment to see the best ENT on the Central West Coast. We are praying that he will be able to perform the procedure right there in his office at the appointment to help them have a wider range of movement in the tongues and also be able to help us with their tight jaw problem.
I am thorougly exhausted with the extra time it takes to pump and wash the pump and the bottles in addition to feeding them. Danny of course has been a great help prepping bottles and getting up throughout the night to feed one while I feed the other.
Because of the exhaustion I have memory loss. I don't want to finish the story without the right details. I do have the post saved and I add to it as I recall details. Hopefully I'll have it blogged soon.
