Move over, Rocky...the girls are comin' home!
This is Stephen posting a little something for Amber n' Chris. They just want everyone to know that they'll be going home TODAY with two new bundles of joy! It's been a long and exciting week and everyone feels so blessed with the two new additions. Everything has gone so smoothly for Amber, her pregnancy, delivery, and early adaptation to motherhood. However, Trista (below) is a bit Jaundice, a common condition in healthy newborns which shows up around the 2nd or 3rd day of life, so they're going to keep a close eye on her. She's able to go home...but, they may have to bring her in to the doctor for a few days if she doesn't improve on her own. She's eating well, so that's a big plus.
A quick rundown of this condition for those [guys] who might not know, or [ladies] who have forgotten, can be found at this link:
Jaundice in Healthy Newborns
Because of this, Amber and Chris have requested that no one visit the new bundles at home just yet. They want to be sure that Sadie and Trista are both in tip-top condition for their public debut. We're curious as to how Rocky (Amber n' Chris' 1 Yr. old Boxer) will take to playing 3rd fiddle now that there are two newborns to spoil. I'm sure he'll do just fine as long as he has his rope to chew on.
Thank you for all the continued phone-calls, love, and support to our family during these past few months. With Dad's situation and the arrival of the twins, it's been an exciting roller-coaster-ride ending to an exhausting year. We're all looking forward to a wonderful 09 with the new babies. Talk again soon!
