Our brand new baby BOY!!!

Linus Edward
Saturday, June 25 at 11:12 pm
7 lb, 11 oz
19 inches

We had an unexpected twist when he ended up in the NICU just a couple hours after birth.  He had low temperature and blood sugar, and they were concerned about an infection.  Later in the week we had a scare with breathing issues, a possible seizure and meningitis concerns.  Thankfully, everything serious was ruled out and although we still don't have any clear answers, the belief is that he had a minor infection that was cleared up with antibiotics.  After spending a week in the NICU, we're finally going to be able to take him home tomorrow, and we are so excited!  We made the decision to go with a hospital birth, thinking I might need some help, and while I didn't, thankfully, we were glad we were there when Linus needed to be.  It has been a long, stressful week, and I am so looking forward to finally being home and getting to enjoy time with the whole family.
