No really, I will update soon!

I keep trying to get to the computer long enough to write the birth story and progress reports since then, but time keeps zooming by too fast to accomplish anything.  Everything seems to take 10x longer than I expect it to, probably because I'm walking so slowly.

The problem is I hate typing on my phone and for what I know will be a novel length blog post, I want a keyboard.  At home, I'm always dealing with some part of the pumping process, or feeding myself (and K), or trying to get some sleep because I'll need to get up to pump again in a couple of hours.... time just escapes.  Then I'm at the hospital where I have time because we mostly just watch babies sleep, but no keyboard!  Argh!

Basic update (I hate that the story will be written out of chronological order) -
Christina is now completely disconnected from assistance machines and is only on monitors.  She's been taken out of her isolette (will spell check later) and so far appears to be maintaining her temp.  If she maintains her current condition, she will come home in a couple of days.

Charlotte has been taken off breathing assistance and is in an isolette under lights for jaundice and to maintain her temp.  She is likely to come home shortly after Christina.  If so, we're looking at a total nicu stay of about 10 days instead of the anticipated 2-3 weeks.

Due to the lights, they have a mask on Charlotte that makes her look like a superhero.  I'll upload the most normal looking pic I can get, but she's under blue lights.  I took pics under various color filters hoping to battle the lights a little, so we'll see which color looks best.  The pic of Christina is her on my shoulder just after eating.

And I finally slept a little last night.
