Baby Arrival

We had a 5lb 4oz baby boy today at 1:53 in the afternoon born at 33+ weeks. No name yet. Baby is in the NICU but doing well and should come home within three weeks. Brenda, too, is in the ICU. She is doing well after a significant (4 L) blood loss due to her placenta accreta, which required a hysterectomy immediately after the C-section. She was mentally prepared for the high likelihood of a hysterectomy, but it is still a bit of a letdown. Given the circumstances, everything has gone very well. Sorry, no pictures yet. More to come!

Congratulations!! I'm glad baby and Brenda are doing well. Tell Brenda I'm sorry that she got another "odd" baby, I was rooting for her to get an even one ;) But the 15th is a good odd day, at least it isn't a prime number, to me those odd numbers are worse. OK, enough numbers! We are happy for you guys and can't wait to see pictures!
