- The Buthelezi quintuplets are finally home after doctors gave them a clean bill of health
- They exceeded expectations in terms of weight gain
- Their parents thanked doctors, hospital staff, and well-wishers for their support
Doctors have given the Buthelezi quintuplets a clean bill of health and finally discharged them from hospital.
As Briefly.co.za reported, the four girls and one boy were born at the Clinix Botshelong Empilweni Private Hospital in Ekurhuleni in mid-September.
Their parents, Joe and Prudence Buthelezi, named them Siyanda, Sibahle, Simesihle, Silindile and Sindisiwe.
Although they were born prematurely at 30 weeks, they already weighed more than 1kg each and were breathing on their own.
Dr. Moeng Pitsoe, who lead the delivery team, said at the time that the quintuplets would be discharged once they weighed more than 2kg each.
The strong bundles of joy have exceeded doctors' expectations, hence their release. TimesLIVE quoted a hospital spokesperson who said the babies' parents are settling into their new routine.
Joe and Prudence thanked doctors, hospital staff, family, friends, and well-wishers in general for their generous and kind support.
