Girl's Update 4-20-09

I was discharged from the hospital yesterday, which was very weird, since the girls were not coming with me. I do get to spend 24 hours a day with them if I would like -which is wonderful!

The girls are both doing very well. Their Dr. is calling them "her super stars!" For considering how young they are (they were born at 33 weeks and 1 day gestation) they are both doing great. Adison still is having a few apnea issues, which is totally normal for a premmie. She is just a lazy breather, she will forget to breath randomly but she usually starts right back up on her own. Both of the girls have continued to need no help breathing, they are breathing the room air on their own. They both passed their bilirubin tests again today and are not needing to go under the lights. They both lost a little weight after birth but are gaining it back steadily. Today Aubrey weighs 3 pounds 15 ounces and Adison weighs 4 pounds 4 ounces. The Dr.'s are slowly taking them off of their monitors and IV's. It is great to see all of their cables and connections getting taken out!

I will post more updates and pics as we get a chance!

I can't wait for Ms. Rylee to meet her new cousins! I am hoping that she will come out sooner than later! Can't wait to see you guys in July!

Congrats Jen! I'm so excited for the 4 of you! Sounds like the girls are doing well and sounding very familiar to me! How are you doing? I stayed in the NICU with the boys until they came home. They were there for 4 weeks and I only spent 4 nights at home. I just couldn't go home without them! From the pics I can guess which hospital you are at! They are wonderful there! Love ya!

Ugh I want to see them! I'm so jealous I'm the only one who hasn't! Don't worry little ladies, Auntie Erin will see you soon!
