Daniel James

I was sicker than Hades on Sunday and I begged my doctor to admit me on Monday.  This was a good thing because my body went into pre-eclampsia around 8:00 pm MDT and they took me down to  Great Falls by ambulance.  Around 2:30 a.m., they made the decision to do a c-section and take Daniel out as the only treatment for pre-eclampsia is taking the baby out.

Daniel James was  born on Tuesday April 7th at 3:46 a.m. by c-section.  He was 14 1/2 inches long and weighed 1 lb 15 ounces.  He’s in the NICU right now and despite being pre-mature, he’s fighting and doing quite well.  I’m spending time in there with him when I can and the staff there is the best around.

My c-section incision is healing and my blood pressure is going down.  They haven’t quite told me how sick I was — either that or I’m not comprehending it too well.

Thank you for every prayer, phone call, e-mail, wall posting, and everything else.  I appreciate it more than I can express.

    We’re with you all the way. There are lots of stories about babies born under these conditions who thrive with no lasting effects. You have a journey ahead, but God goes with you, and we cheer you on.

    Holy cow, congratulations–I’m just catching up on some blogs today and saw this. Mike was born at around the same time and around the same size. He was in NICU in an incubator for a month or so. His Dad was doing his PhD at the university across the street and would sit and read evolutionary theory to Mike while he incubated. It was definitely scary, but he’s as healthy as can be now! Blessings to all of you.
