And baby makes 6
Without going into all the details, little brother graced us with his presence 4 weeks early, at 7:13pm on the 28th. After the NICU (who is always called in on deliveries of this nature) signed off on him and his loving brothers and sister and Oma and Opa came to see him, he started to "grunt" more and things kind of went from there. He was supposed to just be transitioned in NICU but when I called to check on him around 9:30 that night they informed me he was being admitted and treated for unstable blood sugar levels, breathing instability, inability to maintain his body temp and elevated white blood cells that pointed towards pneumonia. They have him on antibiotics and after scaring us with all sorts of scenarios last night, today he pulled out his oxygen tubes and his NG tube (feeding) and has been showing a rebellious streak. He is doing better, happy to show off his great hair and winning smirk. We don't know how long he will be in the NICU, most likely a week or so. Still no name, but he weighed 5lbs 8oz, 19 inches long. Wish us luck, with health and agreeing on the perfect name.
