New baby!

At 5:09 a.m. today, Berlyn delivered her little boy by C-section. He is 2 lbs, 10 oz., and about 11 weeks premature, but otherwise healthy! : ) He is already breathing mostly on his own, and will probably be off the respirator by the end of the week. Then, once he is feeding well and gets to a certain weight, he will get to come home...probably within a couple weeks of his due date.

I will be going up to see him and Berlyn later today, most likely, and will probably post more about him later. Berlyn is doing well, except for being sore from having herself cut open and having stitches, etc.

Oh wow! Congratulations!

I'm glad the wee boy is doing well!

Yay! Congrats to Berlyn.

I know those c-sections can be rough, we are coming up on our third one soon. I am not looking forward to getting her up the stairs. One good thing is that the hospital is less than a block away.
