Thursday Night Update (from Mel)


Today was another great day. Dan and I got to visit Matthew in the NICU and hold him for over an hour for the first time. (First Picture). He is so sweet and handsome. He has wavy strawberry blonde hair and all of the NICU nurses have a crush on him. :) The doctors think it may take a few more days for his lungs to mature, and then a few days to catch up to his siblings in terms of eating and regulating his temperature on his own. They are guestimating that he may be ready to go home in 7-10 days.

Sofi, Natalia, and Sam are still staying in our room . The doctor's check up went really well - they are all eating about 30 ml every three hours. As of now, it looks like all three will be ready to go home with us on Saturday when they plan to release me. Sofi's temperature was a little low so she is in a isolette to keep warm when we're not feeding or holding her, but this is very normal and she's awfully cute in her little diaper. (Second Picture).

Samuel and Natalia have been hanging out in the same basinette. (Third Picture). They like being close to each other and are doing great. They are very stylish in their matching hats. :)
