The Fab Five

Here you go! From left to right and top to bottom is Baby D then Baby E. Below them is Baby B then Jack William. Finally, Baby A is at the bottom. Tomorrow, Casey will get to see the babies for the first time all together and we hope to get the names assigned at that time. All of the babies are doing very well and are spending most of their time tonight sleeping. Three of the babies need a little bit of extra help breathing (that’s what the blue tubes are), but not to worry, they are doing great! There will be more photos uploaded to the website soon on the media page.
Good Night and God Bless!

Ok, pictures are coming soon, but we’re contending with a dead battery…we wore that thing out today! The babies are all doing “better than average for their age and weight” according to the NICU doctor who checked them all out!

What an experience from start to finish! Casey is doing very well, resting, and anxious to see her babies – she only got to see a flash of them in the operating room before they were whisked away for further care. Unfortunately for mama, she did all the work and missed out on all of the fun… :(

Here are the weights:
Baby A – 2 pounds, 13 ounces, 16-1/4 inches
Baby B – 2 pounds, 2 ounces, 14 inches
Baby C – Jack William – 2 pounds, 11 ounces, 14-3/4 inches – that’s right, as with the entire pregnancy, Jack was right in the middle in the birth order!
Baby D – 2 pounds, 3 ounces, 15 inches
Baby E – 2 pounds, 10 ounces, 15-1/4 inches

We won’t know which baby gets which name until after Casey is able to go up to the NICU with me to figure it all out. Whew!! What a day! More to come later…

God Bless,

Here we go!! Casey’s kidneys have started to fail as indicated by an extreme drop in her urine output over the last 24 hours. Though her labs all came back pretty good – platelets are way up – we can’t wait any longer. We’re scheduled for noon~ish today!

Please pray for Casey’s continued health, the health of the babies, the hands and minds of the doctors and nurses, and for peace for all!!

God Bless,

P.S. Thank you again to all who posted on statesman.com…because of you we effectively, respectfully, and definitively changed the conversation!! I am most likely going to be on 590 KLBJ Monday morning!
