June 16, 2017 – 21 Months…

Hey everyone,

Just a quick update this month. Rachel is still recovering from AWR surgery. It is a long recovery and according to her doctors she is making good progress. She had her 8 week follow up appointment on Monday with the surgeon and he recommended light duty for another 2 weeks, e.g. no lifting anything heavier than 10 lbs (i.e. – Kaleo, Makani & Keoni) 😦

Last weekend the boys had a little cold – runny nose, fever & really cranky! Hopefully they are fully recovered in time for the NICU Reunion Party on June 24th at Kaiser Walnut Creek. We have only been back to the hospital once since the boys were transferred to Santa Rosa. It was when our friends Plamen & Cveti welcomed their triplet babies into the world. That visit brought back many fond memories and experiences from when we were there in September of 2015.

Held every other year, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit reunion at Kaiser Permanente in Walnut Creek brings together NICU patients and their families to reunite with many of the nurses and physicians who cared for them during their stay.

1 for each baby…

About 3,500 babies are born each year at Kaiser Permanente’s Walnut Creek Medical Center. Roughly 440 of those spend time in the NICU. The Level III NICU has a team of neonatologists, pediatricians, respiratory therapists, and specially trained nurses who provide care for infants with all types of issues, including premature births, infections, and respiratory distress.

We are looking forward to not only seeing the staff, but we are really excited to catch up with a group of families that we have met through our ‘tight knit’ multiples community who also delivered at Kaiser Walnut Creek.

And finally – a huge Shout Out to the 2017 NBA World Champion Golden State Warriors!!!
