A New Baby
On April 15th, the dreaded tax day, I woke up 37 weeks 2 days pregnant and very tender in the belly. I tried to stock it out and after 2 hours I broke down and called the Dr. Off to triage I go! Mom drove me, hubby met me there and after a few minutes, I was hooked up to monitors and we found out this mama was having contractions every 2 minutes!! After almost 4 hours of triage contractions I was finally sent to surgery where at 3:54 I had baby Harrison Rhys weighing in at 8lbs 4 oz & 20 1/2" long.
Unfortunately, he wasnt able to come home with us. He went directly to the NICU and we later found out he had fluid in his belly & lungs, a small leave in his heart valve & a small leak in his lungs. After a really stressful 5 days we were thrilled to know that he is healing well, the fluid is gone, the leaks are healing naturally, he is off of O2 and off of the feeding tube. And the best part? He is coming home on Thursday!!!!!!!
