What a crazy week, no time to post! William was at the hospital all the way up until Thursday. He made continual progress throughout the week. On Sunday the CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) was removed and later that evening his feeding tube was taken out.
On Monday, Joseph had his first pediatrician appointment and we said good-bye to Grandpa Green. Later in the evening William's oxygen tube was removed. Big celebration, no more tubes!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Abbie had some post delivery complications and had to be admitted back into the hospital. And William had to finish his last round of poking and pricking before he could go home. Rough two days for Abbie and William.
On Thursday, the boys were finally reunited!!! They had their hospital pictures taken and we brought William home! Link to their pictures: http://www.our365.com/NewbornPortraits/Default.aspx?SM=ByFamily&BY=2008&BM=9&BD=17&FC=&FCY=US&FS=MO&MLN=gre
