Reese Delaney Kearns
Lyn and Reese are resting well in the hospital. Carol (Lyn's mom) is staying with her tonight while I stay at home with Mason trying to keep his routine as close to normal as possible. She arrived this morning at 7:24 a.m. weighing in at 6 lbs. 9.5 oz. She was 18 inches long. She had trouble what they call "transitioning" from in the womb to breathing on her own. Apparently this is quite common with c-sections. So Reese had to stay in the special care nursery for 4 hours before Lyn actually got to hold her for the first time. They were monitoring her breathing to make sure everything was ok and that she wasn't straining too hard to breath on her own. After 4 hours the pediatrician gave her the thumbs up and she finally got to come into the room with us. So far she's beautiful and very content to do nothing but eat and sleep which is convenient since the post-op pain medication Lyn has makes her VERY drowsy. The camera is a the hospital or else I'd try to figure out how to post them to the blog. Lyn is hoping to be able to come home by Friday. Thanks for all the prayers. We'll keep you up to date and post some pictures soon!
