WELCOME TO THE WORLD, KYLE DAVID!
My newest grandson, Kyle David was born this AM. My daughter had RAPID labor and delivery of her first son, Timmers now 3 1/2. This was as anticipated, even faster.
She woke in labor at about 6:15, and Kyle was born at 8:28 AM. No time for any pain meds, etc, very rapid, very hard labor. The umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck, and he had meconium in his mouth. In the process of loosening the umbilical cord, it snapped, near his umbilicus, but enough left to be able to clamp it. They whisked him away fast, and she does not know the weight, etc yet. He is stable, doing ok, and they are weaning him off of the oxygen now. When he is off, they want her to go to the Nursery to feed him, as they want him to be there awhile yet. Later this afternoon, they will be able to bring him to her.
MOM is doing fine. She said this labor was worse than the first (typical, in rapid births) and they have told her that Kyle is also doing ok. Dad also sounded like HE is doing fine.
Please pray for continued good news regarding Kyle. As a nurse who worked with this for many years, the mec. worries me, the snapped umbilical cord, etc... however, she said that there was not a lot of blood loss for either of them. Thank God.
Grandma to three boys and one girl now.
