UPDATE: John was released from hospital yesterday, Nancy’s spokeswoman confirmed this morning.
“They’re just thrilled to have at least one of the babies home for Thanksgiving,” Caruso said. Lucy still remains in the Atlanta Hospital the twins were born in. No word on her release date was given. Original Post: While Nancy Grace rests at home after being hospitalized last week, her twins still remain in hospital, something that may not change for several weeks.
“It’s just killing me leaving them there,” Nancy told People Magazine.
The Headline News anchor is spending “pretty much all my time” at the hospital so she can be with son John David and daughter Lucy Elizabeth, who were born Nov. 4. The twins, who have “golden blonde hair and greenish blue eyes,” are sleeping in the same bassinet.
John David, who “just passed the five-pound mark,” says Grace, will likely come home before his sister, Lucy Elizabeth, who now tips the scales at 3 lbs, 6 oz. Grace hopes to return home to New York by early December but says, “It all depends on when Lucy can travel.”
While it may be hard for the new mom to understand, these babies were actually born big, as far as preemies go. The only thing left for them to do is grow, be able to maintain their own temperature and take all feeds by mouth.
