Steph is being discharged today (Friday). We're really glad she's out of the hospital, but it's really strange to leave Kristell here! Kristell is doing well. They took her off the ventilator yesterday. Now she's on a CPAP machine that assists her breathing a little, but doesn't do it for her. She's starting with a little jaundice, so she's wearing shades and catching some rays. Yesterday the pediatrician said it looks like it will be a longer haul than he had first hoped. We don't know how long she'll be in the NICU, but it sounds like it will be a while. The nurse told us we should consider anything short of September 24 (the due date) a miracle, but God specializes in those!
