One down, one to go

Maisie is officially discharged from Presbyterian / St. Luke's! She is sleeping and squeaking in our living room at this very moment. We are so thrilled to have her home, and so proud of all the progress she has made.

On our way out the door of PSL, we took Maisie on a detour to see twin brother James for the first time in several weeks. Jimmy and I got the most amazing gift as we both were able to hold our little dragons together. It's the first time they've been held together since they left the womb 83 days ago.

Tomorrow is a big day: James has his reanostomosis surgery first thing in the morning along with several hernia repairs. Following the surgery his intestines will have to relearn how to work after not being fully utilized for weeks on end. And, we are hopeful that James will get off the vent once and for all. He's got a lot of work ahead- but James has conquered so much already. We know he will do wonderfully tomorrow.

PS: James is now 4lbs 11oz! That's 3 pounds bigger than his birth weight. Way to go James!
