Home from the Hospital

I was discharged from the hospital yesterday. It feels good to be home, but hard to not be closer to the boys in the NICU. Ben and I have plans to make 2 visits daily to see them. At the moment we are unable to be hands on with the boys so our visits are usually not long.

Both boys are now breathing completely on their own and 100% room air. They are both getting phototherapy for being jaundice, but that is very normal for early babies. They have increased their feedings through the feeding tube. Zak has been having slight problems with constipation, but they are working on it. Ryder has been stubborn and continues to get his IV out so they tend to leave it out unless he needs extra fluids.
