So alot of craziness has happened since i posted last week. First off we no longer have to wait until november to have the twins. On monday (oct11) Tammy was having alot of contractions and couldn't get them to stop, so the doctors office advised us to come in and see what was going on. Well come to find out Tammy was in the early stages of preeclampsia. She had really high blood pressure and toxins in her blood test and alot of protein in her urine. Well the doctor decided that it was gonna be best for mom and kids to get them out into this world of ours. So on Oct 12, 2010 Tammy and I became the parents of two prescious little boys! Tammy had to have a c-section so she has been trying to recover from that and then also recover from all the medications they gave her to treat her condition. She is now doing well and even though she had to wait to see her kids she now has been able to hold them and love them even more!

The babies for the first day of there lives were known has Baby A and Baby B. We did have names picked out but i wasn't gonna choose who got what name without mamas input. So after Tammy got well enough to see them and hold them we decided that Baby A was now known has William Joseph Mendenhall and Baby B was now known as Jaxon Lee Mendenhall. William was born at 10:25 am (on oct 12) weighing in at 5lbs 1oz and being pretty darn close to 18 inches long. Jaxon was born two minutes later at 10:27 am, and he weighed in at 4lbs 10oz and was 18 inches long too!

After the little dudes were born they have needed help breathing and have received it in a variety of ways but now they are barely getting any help breathing and are doing superb!

I am so grateful that our Father in Heaven was and still is watching over my tiny family. After what everyone has gone through in the last two days i know that it is only because of him and his power that everyone is doing as well as they are. I'm grateful for all the love and support that has been poured upon us from family, friends, and the hospital staff. You all have made this alot easier upon Tammy, The Boys, and me. Thank you thank you thank you!

So hopefully William and Jaxon keep on making the physical improvements that they need too. and hopefully Tammy keeps improving also. Its my goal to have everyone home asap.

Thanks again for everything!
