One More

Just got home from the hospital..
My newest grandson was born at 1515 hr this afternoon.
Big boy - 9 lb 9 oz. - his momma is kinda sore.
The grand kids are staying with us tonight; my SIL will pick them up after church tomorrow.
May God be praised. Everyone is OK. The little guy is in neonatal ICU due to a pneumothorax but he should be home in two or three days.

Thanks all. Just found out that the little guy will be in the hospital maybe a day or so longer then anticipated. They may have to reinflate the lung if it does not seal itself. They use a narrow guage needle to let the air escape from between his lung and the chest cavity. Or something to that effect. My daughter should be home tomorrow.

As it was explained to me, he tried to take a real big breath after birth and something popped - his lung deflated. So he is still using only one lung but everything else is fine. Your prayers are deeply appreciated.

Congratulations, Sig!

I feel bad for the little fella. Collapsing a lung hurts, it's happened to me twice. Not a fun way to come into the world.

Congrats Sig, When you come off of cloud nine, think about what college will cost in 18 years. My neighbor pays 10 grand -YES 10K- a year for grammar school. It cost me 1/4 mil
for my twins' MBA's in 1982. May God Bless The Little Tiger.
