Oh my Karen, they are so beautiful and precious! They look so well and healthy - hard to believe they were early. What a great milestone and so quickly for you and the babies - you are still in our prayers and we can't wait till they tell you to take the whole family home!

Well, today or tomorrow we're hoping the babies will be coming home :( They have gained well over a pound and 1/2 each over their birth weight and are strictly on bottles...no more feeding tubes :sorcerer: I am going to head up there now!
Get a load of this......one of the neonatologists noticed the doberquilts and asked if we had dobes. So I told her of SCD and how I volunteer there and soforth. Turns out she adopted "Grant" a couple years ago and he is spoiled rotten :hug: Gotta love it!

Great news, Karen!! It would be so very hard for me to have my babies in the hospital all the time. I bet you guys are just ecstatic that they can finally come home! :( Good thoughts are still coming for you guys, for continued good health and strength to change all those diapers! :sorcerer: :) Sounds like your little ones are going to be just fine. :hug:

It's good to hear good news. So happy to hear the babies are coming home soon. a pound and a half each, that is so great.

Dogs don't know about beginnings, and they don't speculate on matters that occurred before their time.
Dogs also don't know-or at least don't accept-the concept of death.
With no concept of beginnings or endings, dogs probably don't know that for people, having a dog as a life companion provides a streak of light between two eternities of darkness

Our prayers were answered and we brought the girls home this afternoon :sorcerer: They haven't done much but sleep and eat so I'm enjoying the schedule that the hospital had them on :hug: Thank you everyone for all your well-wishes.....they came true today.

Chyna is doing fine with them too. I knew she would :sorcerer: I think she's just relieved that I found my "puppies" and brought them to the den. She knew something was going on, but couldn't figure out where my litter was :hug:
