Yes, the little man has come! At about 12:30 on Tuesday night, Nada’s water broke and we went to the hospital. He was born today (Wednesday) around 3:00 pm. He was being a little stubborn and finally the doctor had to use forceps to get him out of there! As he came out they found his cord was wrapped around his neck twice, so they quickly snipped it and got him out of there! He was having some trouble breathing, so they hurried and rushed him off to the ICU to hook him up to a machine to help him breathe easier. After about 40 mins, they took him off and he was breathing very well on his own. The results from the blood work came back and they found that he had a high white blood cell count, possibly due to some infection, so they will be keeping close tabs on him for 72 hours…just to make sure he is okay! He weighs 6lbs 12oz and is 19.5 inches long!
Here is a cool picture of him with his tubes. He was a stud and handled them like a man! No fussing from him.
So here we are the three of us, visiting together after a long day!
It has been really nice having Mom and Dad Payne here to help and support us! They sure love this grandbaby!
More pictures/updates to come later…I am exhausted and need sleep!
