After two long months in the hospital, Rianne is finally home! She was discharged on the 7th of September, Tuesday at 3:30 in the afternoon. She was sent home on an apnea monitor because of some brief, recurring problems with her heart rate (which should clear up with more time). She weighs 4lbs 10oz (2105 grams). She is on acid reflux medication as well.

Before they send her home, Rianne had to pass the car seat challenge. She was put on the car seat, and watched to see if she could maintain her heart rate and breathing at normal levels for 90 minutes. Babies that fail the test are sent home in a car bed. Here is a part of the video of her car seat challenge and some pictures:
