Our little Emma was born this morning at 9:23 and weighed 7lbs 6oz and was 18 inches long. She's an adorable little chunk with straight light brown hair that's about an inch long. They've done test after test on the poor thing but it's what needs to happen so that we can get some answers and know what she needs done. I'm doing well after the c-section (now that they finally got my pain medicine working). I got to see her and hold her tiny hand for about 5 minutes this morning before they took her over to Primary Children's... it's been SO hard to be away from her while I recover at the U!! Thank goodness for Shawn, he has been so wonderful today looking out for 'his girls'. They took her into surgery to fix up her back at 6:15 this evening and she has two teams of doctors, the neurosurgeon's team has just finished their part and said that everything went well, hooray! The plastic surgeon's team is next and they will close her up the rest of the way which should take another hour. Then I get to hop in a wheel chair and go see her!!! They have also discovered a medium sized hole in her heart between two of the main chambers that they are going to address later... poor little tyke! She is being such a trooper and we just know she'll pull through all of this! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers, we have definitely felt the peace and hope they have brought.
Meeting my baby girl!!
Sweet Little Thing
With G-ma Jo, look at that fabulous hair!
