While in the hospital yesterday, they went ahead and showed me (Gavin) through the NICU again to see some more preparations that they have made for us. They actually had their first drill on Tuesday with all the doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel there to practice as if they were actually delivering the quints. They said it was a bit amusing, since they had 5 baby dolls of several ethnicities-- not to be expected in reality! They have everything figured out, it seems, even timing how long it will take to carry the babies from Carrie in the delivery room to the room where their "womb," or artificial preemie bed is. Each bed is color coded, including the floors around them and the plugs for the equipment. They're very ready for us!
