They’re out! Both of them!! They were moved down to the “intermediate care unit” or ISCU at 6.30 this evening.
We thought it would be a bit longer before they were ready and we never thought that Katarina would be moving down at the same time as Natasha but, well, they have “graduated”. Natasha is now 2.57 kg (5lb, 10oz) and Katarina is 1.94 kg (4lb, 4oz). They are both feeding from bottles, with Katarina rapidly catching up after Natasha’s little episode last week – which we have now decided was Natasha stalling for time because she didn’t want to leave her sister alone in the NICU. Katarina still needs a little more oxygen (~25%) but they are on their way to coming home. Couple of pictures. First Katarina in the foreground and Lara in the background saying goodbye to the NICU
Then the elvelator (lift) ride and the new ISCU set up (Katarina in the foreground, Natasha in the background):

Guess we better get the cribs ready….
