Homecoming: Take One

Dexter is home! All 4lbs & 10oz of him. :) He may be tiny but boy is he alert! With the way this boy eats, he won't be small for long.

Simon will be home in no time. He just needs to pick up some stamina on his feeds. He's a little too laid back for his own good.


Linus scared us to death yesterday. He decided to take out his ventilator tube. They let him try to breath on his own, but he only lasted 30 minutes before they had to put it back in. He was completely warn out and his hemoglobin had been trending down all day so they had to give him a blood transfusion to keep his oxygen saturation up. That was his 3rd one. Today he was much better. He was well behaved and his color was great thanks to a lovely blood donor. This kid's gonna give me ulcers...

I am writing a birth & life story for each of the boys. It's just taking forever since I'm never on the computer these days. Running between home and two hospitals every day leaves little time for anything else.

Great news about Dexter! He better take advantage of his alone time before his brothers come home and he's never alone again :-)

Go Dexter! That's awesome! :)

I will spare you the stores of my own Linus's mischief. As a fellow Linus-mama (I am just tickled over that, can you tell?) we must stick together. :D
