Six years ago

Today. Right now. Rich and I were planning to exit from our wedding reception. We still had some packing to do before we left for Hawaii. (Oh, sweet Hawaii, how I miss your warmth.)

Today, six years later, I came across some of the girls' medical records while cleaning. (Rich, I hope the next six years are a little less eventful.)


This is the first Boston Hospital special care nursery admission for baby girl LastName A. She is the 2360 g product of a 35.7-week triple gestation. These triplets were spontaneous triplets. They are monochorionic triamniotic. The delivery was a planned cesarean section and this triplet was in breech presentation. She emerged vigorous with a good cry. Her Apgar scores were 8 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes She was then transferred to the special care nursery for further management.

This is a 35-week gestation preemie first of triplets who is doing well.

This is the first Boston Hospital admission for Anna who is admitted with known meningomyelocele at 35.7 weeks of gestational age. She was born weighing 2195 g. Triplets were spontaneous and considered identical. This baby was diagnosed antenatally with a sacral meningomyelocele and dilated lateral ventricles on a 30-week ultrasound. Delivery was via scheduled cesarean section. Apgar scores for this triplet were 9 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes respectively. The baby emerged vigorous with spontaneous cry.

Mother had a previous stillborn at term. Of note a nonstress test had been reactive with that pregnancy 48 hours prior to the demise. The pathologic examination found no congenital malformations and no obvious reason for the demise.

This is a 35.7-week triplet female with known myelomeningocele who appears well.

This is the first Boston Hospital special care nursery admission for baby girl LastName Triplet C. Baby girl LastName Triplet C is a 2180 g product of a 35.7 week gestation. These triplets were conceived naturally and are monochorionic and triamnionic. The triplets were born by elective cesarean section. This triplet was born at 10:59 am. She was in breech position.

In the delivery room, this infant was vigorous, cried immediately and had Apgar scores of 9 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes.

This is a newborn triplet at 35 weeks, who is doing well.

Our life.

Medical records take the empathy out of everything. I just ordered copies of Peyton's and I'm wondering how they will word CP, because her online chart has these great things listed under health issue like Congentail musculoskeletal deformity of skull, face & jaw, and sternocleidomastoid muslce. Stroke, disorder of muscle, ligament & fascia. Make her sound like a monster for christs sake.

How funny that my husband and I have also been married 6 years ago on the same day. Happy Anniversary to you both! I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing pictures of your adorable little girls. Thanks for sharing.
