We are pleased to announce...
We started out the day thinking that we would have a natural delivery. Initially, everything was going well, but at about 1:30 pm the physician decided that Finn needed to come out. A c-section was performed, Finn received an APGAR score of 9 (yeah!) and he was on his way over to Children's. The rest of the afternoon consisted of x-rays, a very thorough ultrasound of his heart, and generally getting him settled in his new home in the NICU. Mom is doing very well recovering and had a chance to visit Finn for a short time. The cardiologist stopped by and gave us an update on the diagnosis. I'm sure that we will learn even more tomorrow.
I am probably forgetting to say a lot of things, but it is getting late, it's been a crazy day and I plan to be up for rounds in the morning. We will try to cover the rest in later posts. Before I go, I just want to say that Kelly and I have been absolutely amazed at the outstanding staff at both Abbot Northwestern and Children's. They have gone above and beyond in so many ways today!
