Roll Out The Red Carpet........

I am proud to introduce the Lewandowski Quadruplets!

Baby A, born at 1:15 pm, weighing in at a not to be outdone 2#4oz, drum roll please, the one and only Lewandowski girl......Summer Anne.

Baby B, born at 1:16 pm, weighing in at a pesky 2#9oz, the problem child of the group.....Brock Hunter.

Baby C, born at 1:17 pm, coming out swinging at 2#13oz, the fiesty one according to the doctors.....Cameron Thomas.

Baby D, born at 1:18 pm, the heffer of the litter, weighing in at an astounding 2#14oz.....Dane Taylor.

Tonya could not have done any better and she is recovering well.

They grade the kids, it's called the arg something, after 5 minutes, two were graded 8 and two were graded 9. That is awesome!

We could not be happier, we could not feel luckier, someone was watching over us today.

The decision to deliver today was the correct one. Tonya's uterus was estimated at 4 cells thick, or paper thin, and broke open at the touch of the scalpel.

The Quads are all in the NICU. They are all doing good. One of the doctors came to give us an update. The x-rays of their chests aren't back yet, but they are doing good. One quad is on the respirator and the remaining 3 require assisted breathing. That is amazing! The doctor expects the babies to be feeding on breast milk within a day or two.

The baby naming formulat....huh, pretty neat eh! The clause was if there was only one of one sex, that babies name did not have to follow the first names starting with the corresponding letter from the womb, hence Summer. Come on, give it up, you all love the naming formula!

Finally, again, thank you all for everything you have said and done for us. We were very scared going into the operating room. Our team of doctors and nurses did an amazing job. There were on or around 23 doctors and nurses in the delivery room. It was poetry in motion. We are very fortunate for the team here at Munson.

We are praying that the babies stabilize and start to breath on their own. We have not had the chance to see them since birth. We will get to see them shortly. It will surely be difficult to see the assistance that they currently require. But again, we could not be any more grateful with how well they are doing and how well everything went.

One things for sure, that Summer is going to be well protected.....

All of our love and thanks,
The Lewandowski Family

Congratulations! I am so happy for you all that everyone is doing well!!!! What a wonderful family you have, now. Can we send gifts for the babies in care of The Manor? Or is there some place where cash donations can be accepted? Don't hesitate to let us know (we know you hate receiving help) because there are alot of people out here in cyber space that want to help in some way, and since we cannot physically be there, this is one way we can show our appreciation for you sharing your life with us. You guys should be on Oprah - your blog is so educational, enlightening, and entertaining!

Congrats to you. Those apgar scores are really great.

I know, at least with our triplets, the first few days were the hardest with all the wires and tubes, etc. Once they start hitting on all cylinders, you'll be running around like crazy trying to keep up.

Good luck to you all and God Bless!

We are so happy for you! The prayers will continue for T and your little ones. I love the names and can't wait to see pictures. Dana and I are going shopping tomorrow for baby wear! Give Tonya our love. Thanks for sharing this amazing journey with all of us. Ron and Carol Salladay

Moni Graf said...

Yay! Love the names and the the whole master scheme behind it. Summer kinda fits into the formula with her middle name, Anne.

Were they all born in the same order that they were in the womb?

Congrats and I'm sure your baby girl will be better protected than any other girl in the world!

Tonya, I hope you get to do some resting and healing. There will be plenty of time for laps around the NICU later.

Love from KS,
Moni

I'm glad everything went well and MamaT and the babies are doing great - give our love to all....

ps - now your house is going to sell - I had a whole theory about when you guys were going to sell it and it required the babies to be born and even Todd admitted it made sense - now that's reality, get ready to start packing.....

Heidi said...

CONGRATULATIONS! We are so excited for you all! Tonya you did a great job cooking those little muffins, who could imagine 4 babies, taking them to 31 weeks with essentially no bedrest???? You are amazing. I'm so excited to be able to watch your family grow. We are so truly blessed! Jeremy: great naming formula, I love them all. Can't wait to meet Summer, Brock, Cameron, and Dane. Hannah and I just said prayers for them all...

Love,
The Schramskis

Tubre Quads said...

Yahoo! Great job Tonya! I love the names and it was fun for the sex of the babies to be a surprise. Yall are pretty funny. Tonya, make sure you get some rest...that epidural and adrenaline will lie to your brain and if you overdue while it is still in your system you will regret it the next day...at least I did :) Can't wait for you to get to hold them for the first time...priceless.

Love from Louisiana,
Jac

Corinna said...

Congratulations! That you made it this far along in your pregnancy was absolutely amazing. Your babies are so fortunate to have such a healthy mama. Rest up, and take advantage of one of the best benefits of having preemies: the NICU 24/7 care! =) (our daughter was a 32 & 6/7 weeker)

Take care,

Corinna, Philip and Clara Wells

Laura Ann said...
