We are beyond pround to introduce our son- Robert Michael C.
He was born at 11:22am weighing in at a svelte 1 pounds 7 ounces. He is 12 1/2 inches long.
He's tiny but strong.
I've only been able to visit him once as I'm still on the devil drug (magnesium) and bed bound, but David has been to see him a number of times and he's doing wonderfully.
He's already off the vent for at least a few hours. When I visited, they said usually he'd be off for a few hours or even days and have to go back, but any time spent off the vent is good. We know he's been off the vent at least 2 hours, so we're doing well.
The doctor explained to David that babies of his size & gestational age have some common problems like blood glucose, blood pressure etc, and so far he hasn't exhibited any of those.
I know we'll have trials, but for now, he's strong and thriving.
We both know we owe his health to all the prayers and love everyone has sent out. Please keep it up.
And without further ado:
