They're Showing Off

Last night was wonderfully uneventful. The babies were fed at 11:00 p.m., and I was awoken at 4:30 a.m. by a knock on the door and Irena saying "Jason, it's time for the feeding." The babies weren't crying, in fact they probably could have slept longer. This was the first night since they have been home that they have not been the first to wake up for their feedings. Instead of pressing my luck and letting them sleep longer, I got up with both Dailius and Irena and we fed them all in under 1/2 hour. Apparently they were little angels all day today as well, and I'm convinced that they are showing off. Lukas was the only one with a doctors' appointment today, and that was good news too. While he was in the NICU we were concerned that he had a hernia that was going to require surgery, but we are being told now that it is just a hydro seal. I am not really sure what that means, but I know it's better than a hernia and doesn't require surgery. The picutre posted is of Irena feeding Lukas.

FYI It's a hydrocele. Definition: The accumlation of serous fluid in a saclike cavity,esp. in the tunica vaginalis testis. DUH....everybody knows that. Glad to see everyone is doing good. Irina doesn't look as tired as me. Hope the babies continue to sleep longer at night. Maybe it wont be too long before you can look at sleeping 6 hours straight. Miss you guys. love grandma

Starting to become a little concerned. This is the 2nd time I have seen Lukas in pink. Maybe it's because his father has always liked dressing in pink too?

Hey Jason and Greta,
Labas! Have "dropped" in a few times but didn't leave a note. On this date - 3 months and all, just wanted to let you know you've been in our thoughts and prayers - all of you.
Our very best during the holidays
Carol and Gintar

A hydrocele is a collection of fluid outside of the testicle but inside the scrotum itself. We often see them on babies in utero when they are reaching term. These are benign and common and hopefully will resolve soon on it's own. The ultrasound gang at Dr. Bryant's office loved our pictures and we drop by your website whenever we can. Love being kept up to date with these babies!
