Chloe on the left and Cara on the right, now a little over 3 months old:
For my friends that have followed the story, Cara was diagnosed with KATP-type congenital hyperinsulinism shortly after birth and wound up having 1/2 of her pancreas removed at around 4 weeks old.
I then got banned from seeing them because bastard son-in-law didn't like something I said, did, wore, ate, whatever. I didn't back down and told them the babies weren't clubs to be wielded over everyone's head and wished them well. They backed down. Evidently the babysitting services offered were too appealing!
Now, this proud grandma sees these little cutie petooties every day. I go over early every AM to let my daughter go back to sleep for a few hours so that she can function during the rest of her day!
I am so happy it all worked out for ya, Irohner! Those babies are just too cute!
Only heard part of this story, but I am glad that you can be there for them in their lives. Gorgeous!
YAY!!!!! Irohner I am so proud that yu didn't back down and that you get to see those cuties! Aaaaa they are too cute!
Those are such beautiful babies. I'm glad things were resolved for the better.
Chloe and Cara look absolutely adorable. Lovely bright eyes they have. I'm so happy for you Irohner. GodBless them.
Thanks all -- for the baby compliments AND for all of your help when things were going so very wrong!
Beauties!! Here's to good health for them, you, and happy days for a long time to come.
Good for you for holding stable ground.
Irohner the babies are sooooooooooooo cute. They are lucky to have a grandma like you.
Best wishes for the sweetie babies.
Thanks Tantrum and Daniel. And I have to say, Daniel, that was one of the absolute most difficult decisions I ever had to make.
Those are some really pretty babies!
I am so happy for you, that all of this worked out.
So very glad it's working out for you, Lisa! ...and so glad you stuck to your guns (no strings, now)! You go girl!
Such beautiful babes are worth fighting for!
Chloe and Cara are beautiful girls. So glad you get to see them every day. Maybe some day another miracle will happen and Dad will lose the stick up his @rse.
they're gorgeous. glad that you are able to see them regularly.
Thanks RM and Flightkeeper, I agree. They are just too cute! Sigh...
They're beautiful. What a couple of sweeties. So happy to see Cara is doing so well.
Thank you, Lor and Lisa. They are the cutest, and Cara is doing well. For a genetic defect she had that was as severe as it was, she had the best case scenario, so we are all very happy.
Ohhh, the girls are beautiful! I'm so happy to hear Cara is doing well. You are an awesome Grandma!!
Oh my .. you just made my whole day . . a beautiful picture with an amazing message from you. . . and those gorgeous babies are so lucky to have a Grandma like you!
They are adorable. Congratulations!!!!
So she didn't leave the jerk... Whatever at least you get to see your grandchildren.
I have to break my silence for a mo and say how I am happy for you Lisa! And they are real cuties
Thank you Jane, Wave, Sandra and Naomi. And Misha, I am totally honored that you chose to respond. And I (we) miss you, bud!
They are absolutely precious! You must be walking on clouds. Glad the son-in-law got over his issues and you can enjoy them and have some time with your daughter. Congrats!
Wow! Cute grandchildren you have there Irohner. You make me want to have a baby or two of my own . You must be really, really proud of them.
Gorgeous babies! I'm hoping for another grandaughter in May. I already have 5 boys, but only 2 girls.
Awwww Irohner, thanks for sharing such a beautiful picture of your grandchildren. And to be blessed with 2 at one time, I know you are proud and happy to be back with them!
I am happy the situation was resolved for you . Looking at those two beauties a person cannot help but smile !
So precious! Thanks for sharing. I miss my grandchildren in the mainland. I will get to see them at Christmas. Yeahhh!!

Awwww, they're little darlin's. Yer so luckyand blessed. Love 'em and spoil them well now.

Keep sticking to your guns, the babies need Grandma too.
Awwww..Little angels! You lucky,lucky grandma! Glad that your problem has been sorted out.Your daughter and grandchildren are lucky to have you! God bless!
Thank you everyone. I'm a bit biased, but I also think they are just the cutest little things!
Those little darlings would win any baby competition. They are soooo cute. being a granny myself at such a tender age brings such joy, and i'm so pleased you can now see yours.
Thank you, Helen. And you look WAY too young to be called grandma! Although, my ex-hubby's mom had her daughter at 16. Her daughter had her first baby at 16, making her a granny at the tender age of 32!
I don't yet have any of my own, but, good gosh those babies are cute!
Ironher,they look precious. Loved the snap and all that you are doing for your daughter, trust me she will be indebted to you for this. After birth one thing that every mom needs is a good nights sleep, You sure are one solid and rocking Grandma!!!
By the way sorry for the late reply followed this thread from this post http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/27966

What is the nicest thing that happened to you today?I only ask this because today I had a lovely oldish lady stop me in the street and she said, excuse me dear, but I just had to say you look just like my daughter! and then she went on to say that the daughter was now living in Canada, and she...
