A New Addition to the Preemie Club...

Our second child, a baby boy, was born on Wednesday, December 12th at 12:35 am! Since he was born at 32 weeks gestation, he will be in the hospital at least until January 2nd. Thankfully, he is a strong little man, and has been breathing on is own since his birth. Please keep our family in your prayers! I am not sure how frequently I will be able to update, but I will try to put up the birth story soon since it is a doozy!

Emma!! I'm so happy you made it home and that your little one continues to do well! I guess it's a good sign that you found a few minutes to update your blog. ;-) I know your readers will appreciate it. We continue to pray for your little boy-- and your whole family!

Congratulations, Emma. I wasn't expecting that so soon! I'm glad he is well.

This is my first time to comment on your blog, although I have been checking on it often since I first visited it about two months ago.

I'll pray for you all.

Congratulations! It's so nice he won't have to be in the hospital for very long, although I'm sure you wish he was home.

It's wonderful the technology they have now, my little brother and I were both born at 33 weeks, and my mom said the NICU had changed even in twelve years, and that was six years ago now!

Michelle Melania said...

Congratulations! I wasn't expecting to see that post any time soon. We will most certainly be praying for you little on. Our son was also in the NICU and they take sure wonderful care of babies. It is a miracle that he is breathing on his own. How wonderful!! I will pray that he continues to do so well.

Emma, I had missed "hearing from you" on blog posts the last couple of days but had no idea that you were bringing a sweet, brand new little life into the world! Congratulations to you and your husband and the new big sister! I am the big sister to a brother as well and we are so close. I pray that they will have a beautiful relationship and that he will grow strong and healthy and into the man God has created him to be. Sons are a blessing from the Lord. Enjoy your forty days although I guess it will be somewhat modified with him still in the hospital. Soak up the joy of this time though and seek the things there are to be thankful about this time rather than the differences from what you might have been expecting. Kelly

Oh - congratulations and blessings to you! Yes, praying for the next few weeks to pass as easily as possible. He'll be home before you know it.

Christina said...

Congratulations... I hope the hospital isn't too far away. Petros was in NICU for a month. May your baby come home sooner than that (it feels like something is absent, being home while baby is still in the hospital:(

Nikki said...

Congratulations on your new baby boy. I am 30 weeks myself with a little boy due February 17, so I really can feel for you. How exciting! I know that you wish you had him at home with you, though. What a nice Christmas present. Lucky you gets to sleep at night now, while I am still uncomfortable! lol

Oh, my! I remember having to leave my 2nd baby in intensive care while I had to leave to go home each night! Such an emotional upheaval! I'll pray that all will go well for all of you--and that your little bundle will be able to come home soon.

Peace be with you,
Jean in Wisconsin
