Well, the boys finally made it to the CRIB! This is a celebration when you are in the NICU! First, they relocate you to the back wall...that is a good move. Next, you graduate to the crib....that is great. Finally, you get to go home! That's right, going home is what comes next. If the boys behave for three days, they get to come home. Dr. Strange wanted to send them home Friday, but I told her my baby shower was planned for Saturday and as of right now, we don't even have their car seats! I pleaded for her to wait and send them home Sunday, if everything checks out alright. So far, the boys have done wonderfully. In order to go home, they have to breathe and eat without struggle and hold their temperatures well. So far, they have done just that. What a huge praise to God for us to shout! These little stinkers were not even due until the end of February. They are ahead at this point of where doctors anticipated them being when they were born. Thank you all for your continued support and prayers. Thank you so much Linda, for house sitting for us tonight while we visited the boys. I know it was cold and really late when you got back home. Christy, I can't thank you enough for watching the girls for me while I went to the hospital to feed the boys (for three hours), and also for cooking supper. The girls are still talking about "cooking with Ms. Christy" I am really looking forward to our baby shower this Saturday. I appreciate all you guys have done for me. I am truly overwhelmed with gratitude.
The Pate boys sleeping soundly together in their crib!
