We also wanted to take a moment to share with all of our friends and family that the doctors gave us strict orders this week in regards to going home:
- Keagan and CJ are not allowed out in public for 2 months (we'll be going for A LOT of walks)
- Visitors are going to be extremely limited-the doctor said 2 people at a time and that might be all in a day. The two primary reasons for this are exposure to germs and energy. The germs are an easy one to understand-they've been in limited contact with the outside world since birth. The energy one is a little different than most full term infants-our kids basically get to be held for a half hour after their bottles and then need to lay down to get 2 hours of uninterrupted sleep. If that doesn't happen, we are risking them burning more energy than they have coming in with calories consumed. With people over-it is hard to make that happen.
|HOORAY!! It is finally time to go home...82 days in the NICU was enough for me (but loved meeting all the wonderful people along the way)!|
