We're Home!


Woohoo! After 81 days in the hospital...it seemed like the day would never come--but it did! The last couple of nights have been kind of rough as we have had to stay the night in the hospital with the girls and "prove" ourselves. Matilda is still on oxygen and a monitor, so they wanted to make sure we felt comfortable with all of the equipment before turning us loose. We were discharged yesterday at about 12pm, and took the girls on their first van-ride to our house! We are so happy to be all together at home. Anyway, I hope to post lots more pictures and news soon... but in attempt to take the good advice I have been given on a number of occasions... While they are napping, I will nap:) Thanks again for all of the continued love, prayers, and support-- I will let everyone know when visitors are welcome!

p.s. and a whopping THANK YOU to all those who took care of our girls in the hospital-- we will have a post dedicated to you in the future!
