Baby Update



You may remember the post I did in the beginning of August about the Social Worker at our Nursing Home. In it I told you about Lauren and the triplets she was expecting. She had to go on bed rest at that time. She was 23 weeks along and the Dr's wanted her to make it to 30 weeks.
I'm happy to report that she made it! The babies were born last Monday at 30 weeks.
Austin was 3# 1oz
Brookelyn was 2# 15oz
Blake was 2# 6#
They are doing quite well. Austin remains on a ventilator and has had a couple of tiny brain bleeds, but over all the Drs are happy with their progress.
Any prayers for them would be appreciated.

Wow, I cannot imagine 3 at once. Happy to hear they are well, though I'm trying to picture a 2#6oz baby. Jeepers that is small.

Hope they grow fast.

How's your schedule this week? Monday's already gone, which is unbelieveable, Tue. and Thur. I train at the bookstore. Wed. sometime, I'm going to a fundraiser at Biggby sometime- not sure when.
