Home Sweet Home

We're here! After spending a couple hours at Costco to get drugs we have finally arrived. Michelle and Kevin are very excited to be in the comfort of their own home with family and friends around.

Dr. Cousins discharged Michelle early this morning and said he feels comfortable with the decision to let her go home. While he explained that this doesn't mean a promise that everything will be okay, he said that she and Karsie are looking as good as any other mom and baby would at this point. However, with the recent findings she will be put pretty much on bedrest.

We will need to go in three times a week to be monitored and have sonograms taken until the end of the pregnancy. Michelle is still going to be on insulin and anticontraction medicine until delivery. It was again explained to us that we will have an amnio around 37 weeks and if everything looks good we will deliver at the end of week 37 or beginning of week 38. That is beginning of August (assuming nothing else goes wrong).

Michelle has been instructed to monitor kicks and that will be her way of deciding if something is wrong. If Karsie doesn't kick 10 times in an hour, then we go in immediately. Given our track record that should be no problem. Last night during monitoring Michelle said she could have sworn Karsie was riding a bicycle inside her womb. We think she is gearing up for the Tour de France.

Come see us if you get a chance. We love you all....

  3. I'm glad you're home too, but if you aren't good Mom is telling Dr. Cousins.
