Our 3rd little boy has arrived. Zane was born last Friday, the 23rd of November. He weighed 6lbs 6oz and was a whopping 21 1/2" long. We had him by c-section (which I don't recommend). He was in the neonatal intensive care unit at first, as he had a partially collapsed lung and some fluid on his lungs. That has cleared up and he is very healthy and gaining weight really well. Thanks to God!
For those of you who don't remember, I had placenta previa, which can cause some complications. When they cut for the c-section, they cut the placenta. It caused alot of bleeding. They considered a blood transfusion, even the next day, because I had lost so much blood but decided against it. I was happy with that but am not looking forward to the long recovery that blood loss requires. I really want to thank everyone for their prayers - things went as well as they could have, given the circumstances.
Here are some pictures for everyone to enjoy...
This was the last day I was pregnant.
It was a little scary seeing Zane hooked up to all the monitors!
So happy to have you here...happy & healthy!
Snuggling with mama.
First bath...not too happy about it!
Proud big brother, Dylan!
Mama is t-i-r-e-d! But happy to see her other boys!
Granny and her grandbabies!
My dear friend, Renee, drove 4 hours to come see us. She showed up at my hospital room door with a mischievious grin, a bouquet of flowers and a large gift-bag full of baby clothes. What a treat!
Proud big brother, Kobe!
My 3 boys.
My 4 boys.
Still pretty tired-looking, but oh so glad to be home!
