Gage arrived via C-section August 28 at 11:22PM. He was 7lbs 15 1/2 oz (ok, 8lbs!) and 22 inches long (BIG boy!) He came out kicking and screaming- we are so thrilled! They brought him by my room before they took him to Children's and we got to talk to him and touch him, although we have not held him yet. They did surgery to close the hole on his back yesterday (Wednesday, Aug 29) and everything went really well. They will wait and monitor him before doing surgery to place a shunt to relieve fluid build-up in his head, so probably a few more days to a week before that happens. I am doing good. I am really sore, but nothing I can't handle. I finally got some good rest last night. Dr. Wyatt is giving me a pass to go see Gage today at Children's, so I am super excited about that! I should be released tomorrow, but I am not sure if I will go home or go to Ronald McDonald house. They have us on the list, but it's full at the moment, so we will have to wait and see. We have really appreciated the emails, phone calls, and messages of prayers we have gotten through all of this!
And now, for your viewing pleasure, my sweet boy, Gage!
