And I thought ONE was a handful

The Michigan Sextuplets have their own website. You can link to pictures of the babies. They are all quite tiny--only one is just over two pounds--and all are on respirators plus what looks like a thousand other tubes and wires. The Hospital has an information page which still lists them as in critical condition (They've clearly waived many of their HIPPA rights).

The family has a wish list and a place for donations should you feel so moved.

I hope for the best. Once they are able to get them all home, I'm not sure they will be able to sleep for the next ten years. Still, they are amazing little miracles. I would guess the parents are worried, but feeling really blessed. And for them, the world has stopped and only revolves around these six new people.
