Prentiss and Luke are home!!

Prentiss was discharged from the hospital this morning. He is doing well. Eating and keeping it down... no vomitting. WHEW !! We're all doing the "happy dance". The next attempt will be to establish a routine for "Little Mama and babies". It's interesting how we love our routine or "ruts". I finished up the baby laundry this afternoon and took home. Leaving there without baby in tow felt strange. I have to admit I am tired and will probably go to bed tonight very early. Got to work tomorrow. It is such a relief to see the boys all fed, happy, sitting in their swings watching the mobile go "round n round".
Doesn't take a whole lot to make them happy. Prentiss medications remain the same: Captopril, Lasix, digoxin, and Zantac. He has gained up to 7 lbs 1 oz. It is truly a miracle!! We don't have a current weight on Luke but I bet he is close to that. He had lost several ounces and was dehydrated before it was established that he had pyloric stenosis. He is a fighter also. They are adorable if I have to say so myself. I will post more pictures as soon as I get a chance. Once again thanks to everyone for holding us all up in prayers. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME....HE IS NEVER SURPRISED AND IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL.

Hugs to everyone.

Such a happy dance indeed!! Best news I could hear. Aren't "normal" and "route" wonderful blessings. We can all sleep well tonight but I sure hope you get some major rest. Have a great week and God bless you all. Sharon

I am so glad to hear that things are going good. Prayer is an amazing thing. I will continue to pray for your little ones. We will be going through some of that soon ourselves. Keep being strong. Debbie

I love hearing this wonderful news that both boys are home and can sleep in their own beds.. hoping mom and dad can get some sleep too!!!
With Luke and Prentiss eating better and keeping it down, I hope they can sleep for longer periods of time..I know they should eat every three hours during the day, but should be able to stretch it a little longer in between feedings at night..or do the doctors say different..??

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you..have a great week and share pictures when you are able and rested up...
Hugs, Baba
