Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers. I would like to announce that Arin joined us on Monday March 21, 2011 at 1040pm EDT. She was 38 weeks in gestation and was 3lbs 2.6oz and was 16in long. She is in the NICU and on the vent due to pulmonary hypertension. Though is only needing 70% oxygen and slowly but steadily reducing even those needs. She has had an echo and her heart is good, eyes were checked tonight and they are good and she even had her first dirty diaper today. She is a fighter already as she hates the O2 monitors on her feet and works her feet until they come off much to the nurses chagrin.

Will try to keep everything updated on her and am going to set up a CaringBridge webpage for her also and will post on that when completed.

Thank you for you thoughts, prayers and support. I know that this is just the start of a long and sometimes bumpy road.

    Welcome to the world, Arin Rae! I look forward to meeting you one day~ you and Kaylee will be great friends. She also didn’t like her O2 monitors when she was first born; you guys have such little feet and toes that it is hard to keep anything in place! However, you will grow quickly like she did, and you will thrive like she is, and one day soon, you will show your mommy and daddy just how strong you are~ inside and out! xo

    Congratulations Brianna, Arin Rae is so precious. Sounds like shes doing so well, and you too. Sabrina was only a tiny bit bigger than Arin Rae when she was born. They are so small but their personalities DEFINITELY make up for it! Cant wait for more updates 🙂
