I had a Leap Day Baby!!
« on: March 01, 2012 at 09:23 AM »
William Luke was born yesterday (2/29/12) at 8:11am!!! He was 32w5d and weighed 5lbs 1oz and was 17in long! I ended up having another partial uterine rupture AND the placenta was beginning to detach, so it was great that they got him out so quickly. He is in NICU on clap (but O2 is at room air level!) and they gave him some surfactant which helped him immensely. He and I are doing well and he is so stinking cute!!!
Thanks to everyone for the support and prayers; please continue to pray for Baby Will and his great doctors and nurses.

What a day to be born! I've been keeping Little William in my thoughts and prayers for so long and will continue to. I'm so relieved to hear he had a safe arrival with the speedy C-section. How are you doing? How is your recovery going?

Thanks!  Leaving hospital tomorrow and sweet baby Will has to stay. :( This is the worst part; well, that and playing the very indefinite NICU game. I will post the full story as soon as I can. My recovery is going great.
