Ryan Patrick Byler was listed in critical condition the day after his birth and now he is set to join four of his siblings at home today, leaving just one sextuplet in the hospital.
Ben Byler, 30, and his wife, Karoline, 29, made history on Sept. 1 when they became parents to Brady Christopher, Eli Benjamin, Ryan Patrick, Jackson Robert, Charlie Craig and MacKenzie Margaret. The babies, Florida’s first surviving sextuplets, were delivered by caesarean section at Bayfront Medical Center.
Babies must weigh at least 4 pounds, and be able to feed and breathe on their own to be released. Ryan, who weighed about 3 pounds at birth, now weighs about 7 pounds, Byler said.
Ryan was doing well, Byler said. His release will leave only his brother, Charlie Craig, still at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
Charlie’s status was downgraded from fair to serious condition after he needed help with his breathing a few weeks ago. This week his condition was upgraded to fair.
