Welcome Gideon Charles!

Well, it's a long story, and I'm going to have to go into more detail later, but I wanted to get pictures up for you to see.
Gideon was born on Monday afternoon, and it was a blessed delivery for me, with very little pain after the epidural. He was a 9/9 on the APGAR score, and is a big strapping boy.
A very condensed version of the story.... Gideon had some minor personal issues, and had to be transferred to the downtown hospital for a surgery. It has been a rough week. I was discharged from Fairview this morning, and we thought he was going to be discharged from downtown around the same time, but it turns out that he's not keeping food down, so they need to keep him on IV, and find out what's going on. They have some ideas, which are not serious problems, so we're thankful for that. He's going to be staying there until at least Friday. Jeff and I are home for the night, because we don't have a room at the hospital to stay at, and I'm not recovered enough to sleep on a couch there. Other than these setbacks, it seems that he's a healthy strong boy, and will be home with us soon.

Ok, here are the photos for you. :)

WOW!!!!! He IS a big boy. And what precious little cheeks!

I'm sorry you had to leave him. Been there...done that. It's a long ride home when you have to leave them, isn't it? But I'm so glad everything went well. He is a beautiful little boy.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Love ya,
