First up was Cade Richard Krug
Next was his brother Zane Chad Krug
Very shortly after that Cash Dean Krug joined his brothers.
They made it to 29 weeks and one day. They were all in the same placenta so they are most likely identical triplet brothers. They were big boys for triplets and very big for how early they were. They were immediately breathing on their own. What you see in the photos is CPAP which aids their breathing so they don't have to labor. They are hooked up to all kinds of monitors and what not. They came sooner than we would have liked but they are doing great.
Here is how it went down.
7:00 p.m.- Dr. Allen says Carrie is still at 1 cm and things seem to have stabilized.
12:00 a.m. - Carrie is having intense contractions 3 and 4 minutes apart. She is now at 3 cm. Things are serious. Medication is given to stop the contractions.
3:00 a.m. - The contractions are not stopping. They are worse. Carrie is now at 5 cm and a decision has to be made.
If her water breaks we are in an emergency situation. The Doctors along with us decided to go ahead with the delivery.
The next part is a whirlwind. She is taken from the room and taken into delivery. They give her the epideral and then I got in. Very shortly after that, the first baby is here, then another, and then another. Hearing them cry was probably the best sound we have ever heard. They were then put in the NICU where they are right now and will remain for at least six weeks.
How is Carrie? She is feeling "out of it". She handled the whole thing like a champ. She is laying in bed her and receiving numerous text messages, e-mails, and facebook comments. She tired, but extremely happy.
Thank you all for your support and prayers. We will need them in the weeks to come as our boys get strong enough to go home.
