Our Son Has Come!
On December 28, 2017, our son was born!
His original due date was 01/17/18, but due to medical concerns surrounding his small size, our doctors pushed up the delivery date (which was 37 weeks along). Following his birth, lab results confirmed that this was a good call by the doctors, and we are fortunate to have him with us.
He was 4 lbs 3 oz and came out strong; however, a couple hours later, he started breathing fast and his blood sugar dropped quite low. Truly, I thought I was going to lose my son. His body was so lethargic and looked like he didn’t have much longer to live. BUT they put him NICU and and over the course of those 6 days he got better. They released him from NICU on January 3rd to come home!
A couple days after his release, the pediatrician had him weighed at 4lbs 1oz. Seven days later, the pediatrician had him weighed at 4lbs 15oz!!!!!! Apparently, he has been growing 50% faster than average, and we are so happy he is growing so well! Everything else has continued to look good!
We are overjoyed at this blessing God has given us and are looking forward to the adventure to come!
Below are some images (he actually was/is a lot smaller than he looks in the photos)
