Isaac is here!

Baby Isaac came yesterday at 8:50 a.m. He weighed a remarkable 7lb 4 oz at 35 weeks gestation, and he's doing well. He was on an oxygen hood for half a day or so but is breathing room air now. He has a IV for feeding, and the main problem for now is that I was on magnesium sulfate for almost a week prior to birth to keep him in there. He is having trouble getting it out of his system now, and he can't be fed until that is clear.

I just miss him now- it was only him and me here in the hospital room for 9 days, and now we are separated. I can see him as much as I want, but I have to be back in my room for all the post-op care etc. and it's just not enough. We don't really have a great idea about when he will be able to go home, but we are hoping for early next week.

Your mom sent me pictures and he is so, so beautiful! But, good night nurse, you had to go through one heck of a terrible ordeal to get him!

I was going to write a little announcement on one of my blogs about it but then I thought you might not want me to?

I can't wait to see him in person. You should have had him in the medical center so I could come over and coo at him everyday at lunch. :)

Congrats on the birth of Isaac. You did good Mommy! Can't wait to see pictures of your newest bundle of joy.

Jenny - sure, you can mention him if you want to. Can't wait until he can meet everyone!
