Major happenings over here in Stitchery Dickory land! I just had to take a quick break from all the sleepless madness to post an update. After just 26 days in the NICU, our 7 week preemie twin boys finally came home with us this past Tuesday! What euphoria to have our family together at last!
As odd as it may sound, this day felt bigger than, dare I say it, even their birth day. Can any of you other NICU moms relate? From the isolettes and jaundice lights, to heart rate monitors and IVs, it almost feels like our bout in the NICU was more of a labor than the birth itself…each little ml gained was a centimeter dilated, each tube eliminated was a contraction we’d overcome. Then finally, with one great push from the dedicated staff at our local high-level NICU, we’re out the door and onto the good stuff- LIFE!
To celebrate, my sis thew me the most delightful shower! The Dr. Seuss Thing 1 & Thing 2 theme was too cute to handle. Seriously. Too cute for words. I was on such a high for days from all the love and support….and the red dye #40.
What an unbelievable month! I’m exhausted, borderline delirious really, but overjoyed nonetheless. Can’t wait to get into somewhat of a schedule groove. One day at a time….
