The First Few Days

Henry, Jack, and Sophie have been settling into their new digs at the Beth Israel NICU. Visits from Grumples and Nana (Gillespie grandparents) and Ann and Tom (yet to be named!) made everyone happy.

On Saturday, before being discharged from the hospital, I had my first skin-to-skin time with Jack, the process affectionately called, “Kangaroo Care.”

On Sunday, I had the chance to do Kangaroo Care with Sophie, and Will had his first cuddle with Jack! Henry is still hooked up to the bigger breathing tubes and with his collapsed lung, he needs a bit more oxygen than the others, so we haven’t snuggled him yet, but we can’t wait!
