Sioux City quintuplets come home


Combined, they weighed about as much as one newborn baby. Monday, the last of five premature babies, from Sioux City, went home from an Omaha hospital.

The viewing of the Garcia quints, Marah, Cristobal, Arleth, Jimena and Rosalyn, started about an hour late at Omaha's Methodist Hospital.

But, to be fair, let's see you get 5 babies dressed, fed, in car seats, and not be late.

Among the many difficult things with multiples, telling them apart.

"I can tell them apart pretty easy. Dad has a harder time, but we did invest in some color coded bracelets so that we make it easier for other people."

Bianca and Jose Garcia say they don't know if they'll ever feel ready for this. But, they say they feel blessed.

It was a long, anxious wait for the Sioux City couple. Bianca was on bed rest for 3 months while the team of 35 doctors and nurses prepared for their arrival.
