Ava was born yesterday, September 28, 2011 at 8:09 am via planned c-section. At 39 weeks and 2 days gestation, she weighed 5 lb, 2 oz and was 19.5 inches long (praise the Lord!). Currently, she is in the NICU due to some small breathing problems but other than that she’s doing great! She will have some “routine” tests ran on her heart, kidneys and an MRI on her head due to the fact that she has been diagnosised with WHS prenatally. We’re hoping that she can start eating orally tomorrow. Overall, we are very pleased with how she is doing and are praying that her time in the NICU will be minimal. Here are some pics of her yesterday when she was still on the ventilator (she’s off it now). We love her so much already!!! I will post another update when I have more time. Thanks for the continued prayers and support!
