|Day 5 of construction|
We had the privilege of welcoming twins into the world on Monday. The twins were born by C-section at about 35 weeks because they didn't want the mom going into labor on her own. They have known for a while that these twins might be a problem because one was twice the size of the other...what I am told they call disproportionate twins. One weighed in at 2.5lbs and the other close to 5lbs. This is only the second case I have seen like that here after another case back in October where all 3 almost died. Because of their situation, right after birth, the pediatrician ordered blood work to see where they were at. It's not easy getting blood on a 2lb baby. Thankfully they were doing better than she thought.

Got to go to a birthday party yesterday at lunchtime. My Honduran family had invited me to a special lunch for a little girl who was turning 3. They would be doing the pinata later in the day, and I wouldn't be able to go, so we just took pictures with it. Melissa was so in love with her pinata of Minnie Mouse. She was too cute giving her big hugs.
