MeMe Again


May 7, 2008 at 2:51 pm John-Philip was added to our family. Yes, of course he is beautiful. He was 3 weeks early and weighed in at 6lbs 14ozs and 18 3/4 inches long.

My daughter Kacey is a mom now! She ended up having to have a c-section. Never a dull moment during this pregnancy. She had some scary moments that we thought she was going to have a big seizure, (she has epilepsy)but there were a lot of prayers going up and she made it through. She does have an infection but is doing better. John-Philip is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. His respirations are irregular and fast. He has a small chance of having meningitis due to how long Kacey's water was broken before delivery.

She named the baby after her brother, so his first name is John-Philip. It was a happy day and also one of those missing Philip days. We were all here, Rhonda, Malachi and Madison, and we believe Philip got to peek down at his name sake.

I know this a rather dull blog considering I just became a MeMe again, but I've had just a few hours sleep since Tuesday morning. I will try to make the next one a little more interesting.
