I'm a Daddy!

1lb 6oz

She is stable, and I'm waiting to go down to NICU to see her. The delivery doc brought us a picture...she has hair (go figure with the two of us). That's all I know.

Tricia is sleeping in ICU. The next 24 hours will be critical for Tricia. She's doing well on the vent, but until she's awake, we won't know fully what the future looks like. I spent 5 minutes with her before they kicked me out to do some things.

I'll give more details later, but 75 people in the OR tells you something of the miracle that today has been so far. Lots of tears, both of fear and of joy.

Your prayers over the next few days will be the most treasured.

Congratulations Nathan;

There has been a lot of prayer already. We are amazed as we see God's goodness through all of this. You and Tricia are teaching us all about living as Christ followers!

Thanks for sharing the journey with us

Wow. fear and joy in the same breath. May the God of all hope and graciousness uphold your wife through this time, in order that your new daughter may grow to know both her mommy and daddy in the years to come.
