he is here

Our little one, Joshua Elias, arrived on January 22nd (40w6d, born into the tub), and was transferred to the NICU the next day. His biggest issue is that the pressure in his pulmonary artery is too high, causing the right side of his heart not to work as well, and causing him to have difficulty breathing and eating.He'll have some followup testing today- hoping for some answers and more of a plan.

Congratulations on your little guy.
I hope the tests come out better than you plan, and that whatever they decide to do goes smoothly, and he heals strong and fast!

Results of the testing showed improvement, now the biggest issue is to get him eating well and effectively on his own, and make sure he can keep his oxygen levels up. One day at a time..

At ten days old and after 9 days in NICU, we are home as of this afternoon! So nice to have all my loves under one roof, finally. Have to watch the girls though.. they are so eager and tend to love on him a little harder than he can handle right now!

Who would have thought I'd be so excited to give my girls a bath and put them to bed? (This was the first time I'd been home since delivering him.)

*Argh* I responded on this yesterday morning and realize that it was a part of our missing posts impacted when the server DNS got switched. Sorry about that!

Love the pic of all the siblings! I'm so glad that you are all home together. I know how much that means! (Gosh the girl are so big now! *sigh* )

I know you have been through so much. Continued positive thoughts and prayers for you all! Hope your little guy continues to improve.
