We reached the point that the best outcome for both, but especially her, was going to be by getting good nutrition and oxygen in the NICU.
Once again, we thanked our lucky stars that we have such a talented and experienced group of caregivers and that they have been so wonderfully proactive with their care.
So we made some phone calls to some excited grandparents, got prepped for the surgery, and hung out for a while.
At 12:15, we headed into the operating room and at 12:47 and 12:49 Logan David and Caroline Alice were delivered via C-section.
Mom did GREAT during the whole process and as they got her all finished up, I went up with the babies into the NICU as they did their weights and measurements
Logan weighed in at 2 lbs. 14 oz. and stretched out to 18 inches.
Caroline weighed in at 1 lb. and stretched out to 11 inches.
Both gave great big cries as they were born - much to the delight of the nurses, doctors, and their parents.
They're resting comfortably in the NICU right now... under around-the-clock care.
Mom's resting comfortably in the hospital as well. She'll be recovering for a couple of days, but has already been up to see the babies.
Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and loving support!

Hands up by his face... much like the way he was on every ultrasound.

He'd better plan on waiting until he can front his own bail money
when he gets his next set of prints.
