Bennett Patrick Is Here!

Bennett arrived at 10:15 am on Friday and he weighed in at 7 PBS 14.6 ounces and 20 inches. He went right up to the regular newborn nursery and has been doing great! He's been nursing fairly well and we're just dealing with low blood sugar but nothing too serious. He is an absolute sweetheart, so cuddly and soft! We fell in love instantly!! The rooms do not Internet access so I'm sending this from Mike's I-phone. If I can't post pics, I will as soon as I get home.

I just wanted to thank everyone again for all your prayers, it's means so much to us! God has truly blessed us with Bennett and we can't thank him enough for taking care of our sweet baby boy. I will return with updates as soon as I can. Also, the cardiologist thinks Bennett looks great and will be seeing him every 3 weeks until he feels it's necessary to do the surgery. We are very happy to hear this!

I'll post more soon!

  8. PRAISE THE LORD!!! I've been praying and must tell you, a little worried since we hadn't heard anything yet. However, I had a c-section and know that it takes a bit to feel like yourself again.

    I'm so relieved that he's in the regular nursery and that he's nursing so well! I'm also relieved to hear that his heart is doing ok so far. We will keep praying about that as the drs watch him over these first few weeks!!!

    Thanks for the news and can't wait for the pics!!!

    Congrats mommy and daddy and big sisters!!!
