hi ladies,
first of all, thank you brandy for updating everyone this morning for me. Well, he's here. I didn't realize it but doctor said i had really been in labor since yesterday when all that painful stuff was going on. they moved me over to labor and delivery last night just to be safe, they checked me and i was only at 1cm. I got the epidural last night to help with the pain, the dr checked me around 7 this morning, still at 1. Then i started having some pretty severe pain in my left hip area that lasted quite a while so they decided to check me at that point too, that was at 10am, at that time i was dialated at 10 +2 and she could see kristophers head. So they had me start calling people, trying to get a hold of brian, etc. the doctor came in and wanted to do the mag for about 20 minutes because it helps with CP and continue to help his brain development. so they put me on the mag, dr left and came back later. they had me push a couple times and then at 1030 i really had to start pushing and at 1045am kristopher alexander was born!
He weighed 2lbs 6oz and is such a tiny thing. I'll take some more phone pics over the next few days and i'll put them up so you all can see. He's having lots of trouble with his lungs, we knew we'd have some, but it's a lil worse than we thought. I finally got to go see him about 4pm and he's doing a bit better from this morning. I'll go down in the morning and see him and see how he's doing. he had some tests this afternoon and has some tomorrow so i should hear something by then, one of the tests they were going to have done and read by tonight so.

anyways that's the story, im exhausted and falling asleep as we speak so im passing out to bed but i will be back tomorrow! thanks again for everything!

Thanks for updating. I can only imagine how physically and emotionally exhausted you must be feeling.
I pray that your little guy gets stronger with each passing day.
