My nephew was born this afternoon! He is 5 lbs. 8 oz. and 19 inches long. He cried a little. A breathing tube was inserted and he was taken to NICU. An ultrasound will be done tonight and the surgery is being planned. Keep praying please!
I went to see Alex today. He seems so little (even though he was a good size for being a month early) and it was hard to see him hooked up to all the machines, tubes, wires, etc. Monday night there was an issue with his heart rate fluctuating alot and he was very sensitive to stimuli so the doctors decided to do the surgery Tuesday night. Tuesday morning they decided to do a scan and they found a brain bleed. They couldn't do the surgery with this because there was a very high risk of him having a stroke during surgery. The plan for now is to stabilize him for a few days and once the brain bleed heals itself then they will do the surgery. He is receivig great care and has a nurse that is one on one with him all day. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers and keep them coming please!
