We have Twin Girls!
Riley Jane and Kelsey Rahne made their grand debut at 4:00am this morning. They both weigh in at about 3.3lbs each and are healthy. They came in at 31 weeks, just shy of the hoped-for 35 weeks. They are in the NICU at Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. Both babies cried well, meaning the lungs are developed, and the doctors say they are healthy, but under-weight. Now, if only their proud papa could develop that kind of problem. We are ecstatic, in tears, and can’t wait to hold them.
Lisa went to India today, and I have been handling arrangements from here at home. I hope to join Lisa and the girls in 2 weeks or so. They will be in the NICU for at least 3 weeks, gaining weight and preparing for the long trip home.
Home to those that love them and ache to hold them.
Riley and Kelsey, you may never know how much you are loved and cherished. But your mom and I will spend every waking moment to make sure you have some idea, some inkling of how much we love you two. I’ll see you girls soon..
