Baby's Home . . . Finally!

Here's baby Henry!

Henry

Poor little Henry got off to a very rough start in life. He was born by emergency c-section early Wednesday morning, July 30th after some oxygen deprivation issues during labor. He had some seizures hours later and was sent to the Intensive Care Nursery at UCSF where they took amazing care of him for 2 weeks. He was very very sick but has made an amazing recovery and we are so happy to finally have our boy home with us.

Here is a picture of me holding him for the first time, when he was 4 days old. How happy I was to finally have him in my arms!

He is gorgeous and obviously is a little fighter too. I am glad he is home happy and healthy.

He is adorable! Congratulations! You look beautiful! I hope you both are doing well and feeling good (I had 4 c-sections.) What a wonderful time in your life!

Congratulations!!! I wish you a great c-section recovery (I've had three myself and know that sometimes things can hurt!)!

Your little guy is just adorable, and I am glad that he's doing well, and out of the ICU! I'm also glad that they took great care of him for you!!
