Last of Quintuplets born in Nebraska Goes Home to Iowa


By Rachel Begle

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The last of the quintuplets born July 25 in Omaha has gone home to Sioux City in northwest Iowa.

Rosalyn Garcia left Methodist Women's Hospital on Monday. She's been there since she and her siblings were delivered via cesarean section. Her sister Jimena went home Sunday, joining their sisters Marah and Arleth and brother, Christobal.

Their mother and father, Bianca and Jose Garcia, also have two older sons: 9-year-old Jose and 7-year-old Abraham.

Bianca Garcia was on bed rest for more than 10 weeks before the babies were born at 28 weeks, or about three months premature. A team of 35 doctors and nurses delivered the babies, who weighed a little more than 10 pounds total at birth.
