BREAKING NEWS - Alton & Baxter Due to Come Home This Week!!

When Kreg and I walked into the NICU today we saw that Baxter's GI feeding tube was removed. I gasped so loud the nurses thought something was wrong. I knew that once we saw the tube removed, he/she would be home in a few days. The doctor confirmed that Baxter is on track to go home Wednesday or Thursday...I said "this week??!!" WOW! Soon after we finished digesting the news and after the doctor finished reviewing their charts he stated that Alton was only a 1/2 day behind Baxter and that they should just be sent home together. ANOTHER WOW! We now need to bring in the car seat for testing, will have to sleep over tomorrow night for a test run, and I'll be roaming around the house trying to finish preparations. Twin boys home and a baby girl in the NICU will be our next challenge. Bring it on! :)


  1. Hey Catherine -

    My sisters twins were both under 3 pounds when they were born. In the NICU for 5 weeks and Dana and I drove them to Dallas from Kansas City - it was a most memorable road trip!
    So glad your boys are coming home and i'm sure Charlotte won't be too far behind! Then the real fun begins - sleep while you can!

    Much Love

  2. Hi Catherine! I'm so happy for you. Best of luck to your and your hubby. I know Charlotte will be home before you know. She'll take her 3 hour tour when she's up to weight and pass with flying colors like her brothers. Congrats to you and your hubby! I hope to see you at a triplets mom dinner soon.
