First take a deep breath. Second keep a note book of everything the doctors say. My DD was in the hospital in August 2010 for 2 months. When she first went in the nurse told us we would be home in a week, the next morning the doctors told us that she might not make it. It is never easy to have to watch your child be sick and in the hospital. I would see if there a parents that you can connect with who have been through what you have. at our hospital they have parents reps that help new NICU parents. Also, talk to the doctors and ask them to be honest with you and not tell you everything. At least for me this is what worked. I wanted to know everything up front and I didn't want it sugar coated. I also started a carepage, this was a great way to get my frustrations out and to let people know what was going on with out having to make 100 calls. Good Luck and if you want send me a message!

With hormones still running rampant, I'm sure you're going crazy with worry. With the twins being born early and having under developed lungs......the best place for them is the hospital. I'm sure the Dr.'s are telling you all the important information. Even they can't be sure when you're boys will be ready to go home because it will be based on how they progress. They also can't know what, if any complications will arise. As for your husband.....he's going through the stress just as you are. Be patient and take it 1 day at a time. Good luck!
