Cash, Zane, and Cade

Hello World

Starting at 4:41 a.m. on June 2nd 2010 The Krug Boys began to arrive in this world.

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.

Congrats guys! AleXander can't wait to "meet his new babies" and teach the boys to "play hockey" (which sounds more like HoTea right now).

Congrats to the 5 of you! I've been following your blog for a few weeks now (read the whole damned thing from beginning to end because I HAD to)! I'm also from Austin and I felt a connection with you when you talked about Hell. When I say "hell", I mean Babies R Us at 360 and 183.

I can't wait to read your updates on the trips!

Jenn said...

PS - I found you because Jessica with The Frilly Coconut is my cousin! She designed your blog!

Whew! It's been a heckuva ride for you guys and the fun is just beginning! So glad the boys made it into the world safely and that Carrie is doing well. I do wish they would've waited one more day to make their entry, though ... then they could've shared their birthdays with me! Yeah, I'm selfish like that = )~ Anyhow, mucho congrats. They are beautiful. Prayers and positive thoughts headed your way!!!

Julie said...

Congratulations to you both!! How wonderful to have such a perfect family! A lady in my office told me about the blog this morning. How surprised I was to see it was someone I know. Take as much time as you can to spend with the boys; it all goes so fast....and the laundry will eventually get done:)

Congratulations! Identical triplets is amazing! I know having an emergency c-section is a whirlwind, but you guys are not alone. AMOM has a great NICU support group if you're looking to chat with others who went through it. And I'm sure you've had plenty of offers, but if you need any easy-to-heat meals for those late NICU nights just let me know. That's what was really most helpful for us when at the end of the day you're exhausted and just don't want to cook. We're in North Austin and happy to help in any way. :)

By the way, love the names!

Congratulations New Mommy and Daddy. Now the worrying begins! I pray the next six weeks shows much growth so you can go home.

I am in Waco. Just a jump, hop and skip away if you need anything.

Congrats to you!! I have very close friends of our family that delivered identical triplets (girls), in that same hospital almost 18 years ago :) May God richly bless you guys as you get used to being a family of 5! Please let us AMOM's know how we can help!

Congratulations! I came across this book quite by chance and thought of you two :) http://tinyurl.com/35zcfkf
Tales from the Trips--How Three Babies Turned Our World Upside-Down.

Summary: "John Cave Osborne morphed from a carefree bachelor into the father of four in just thirteen months. Most people slowly mature into domesticity, but after marrying a single mom then quickly conceiving triplets, Osborne was hastily grandfathered in out of necessity. His new book, Tales from the Trips How Three Babies Turned Our World Upside-Down, chronicles his experience in a unique if not unexpected voice. Parenting memoirs are typically penned by mothers, not men, especially ones who are scant months removed from full-blown bachelorhood. His relative inexperience, combined with the mayhem that comes along with triplets, produces chaos, panic, and humor. But Osborne will do more than just make his readers laugh. Tales from the Trips contains several thought provoking metaphors which speak as much to the vicissitudes of life as they do the triplet experience. You don t have to have triplets to enjoy this book. All you need is a sense of humor and a heart."
