The girls went yesterday for their LAST RSV vaccination. Praise the Lord! I have been appreciative of the shots because (cross our fingers) the twins have yet to get sick, but I obviously don't like my babies to get shots. It is so sad because they are so happy and laughing then BAM there it is. Immediate tears. I hate it! When the nurse weighed them Blake weighed 14 pounds 11.5 ounces and Palmer 15 pounds 1.5 ounces. Whoa...go big girls what you gone do??? Who would have thought. Also, Blake had her Alpha fetoprotein test this past Thursday. This lets the doctors know what the tumor cells are doing. She has this done every 3 months, so March was our next one. She had her labs drawn this past Thursday at Childrens here in Birmingham. Cincy called yesterday immediately followed by Childrens Birmingham. The nurse from Childrens Birmingham said her level was 112. December the level was 107. So this is up a couple of points and in the doctors eyes the same. Dr. Lim is out of town until Monday but he will call me then to figure what we need to do. I remembered from December that Dr. Lim said if in March the levels were the same or higher we might need to do another MRI. So as of today I am not sure what the plan is. I will have to wait to hear from Dr. Lim on Monday. This isn't exactly what we are wanting because the level should be slowly decreasing over every month. I will update everyone once I hear. Keep this in your prayers. I am hoping that it doesn't mean anything and we will continue to watch it and re-test again as planned in June. Then again that is just MY plan, not Gods. Not sure what he has in store for us.
