Third Time's a Charm!

Very good news today for Riley. Riley passed her hearing screen. Who cares, some of you may be thinking to yourselves. Well, considering she didn't pass the first two attempts, and Rachael and I have been super worried about it for months, it is excellent news to see her pass today. We were dreading this test, and knew that she would get it before coming home. We saw the hearing lady come into the NICU today and were very nervous, but alas she actually passed. Our little Riley can hear after all. Thank God. We are so tremendously thrilled with the news. I can't even tell you...

So Riley is still on track for her homecoming. Awesome.

In other news, Jack was hanging tough today. He has been good lately, but now they suspect he may possibly need a stomach surgery to fix his throwing up problem. We will know for sure on Monday/Tuesday, but the good news is that the surgery is apparently very safe, and if he does need the surgery it will fix the problem. We are happy for any problem that is correctable. More news on that front later.

A sampling of music that Riley will be introduced to early in life.
