Triplets, 27 Days Old

I am soooo ready to go home!

12/01: We arrived at the NICU this morning and the nurses were just plain giddy when we walked in. We always ask how our little ones are and if they have any updates for us. Well, the reason they were giddy is that Matthew has been doing so incredibly well that they took his feeding tube out (he is nippling all his feedings) and that IF and only IF there are no changes and he continues to progress he would be released from the hospital on SATURDAY!!! We could not believe it!! Of course, they advised us that this was a possibility and they hoped we would not be disappointed if it did not happen! We were also advised that in order for the babies to be released we had to take a CPR class and have each baby fitted to each of their car seats! Rob says well, the car seats are downstairs and he immediately went downstairs to get one. So, Matthew got fitted in his car seat and this was soooo cute! Laura, our nurse, showed us how to position the baby and how to safely use the car seat. Matthew was completely cooperative!!! The pictures are adorable!! He does look tiny in his car seat. (Remember he is under 5 lbs!!!) Austin and Emily are doing well also and they both have grown!! Oh, they did start getting 2 formula feedings a day. Today I am feeling a bit more tired than usual and one of my breasts has been hurting. I think I may be getting another clogged duct. UGH!!
Important Updates:
Austin weighs 4 lbs 5 oz (1956 grams)
Matthew weighs 4 lbs 9 oz (2078 grams)
Emily weighs 4 lbs 8 oz (2054 grams)
