All Heather wished for this time around was a normal pregnancy with a c-section at the end of 38.5 weeks to 39 weeks when the doctor said it was time. Well she did not get her wish, but we did get a beautiful baby boy named Everett Baily LeBlanc @ 9:48am this morning. He weighs 6lb 8oz and is 19 inches long. Heather is resting in the Hospital, and feeling much better considering. Everett is in the NICU getting a little respiratory support and great care from the staff at Women's & Children s Lake Charles. I can not say enough about how awesome these people jumped into action to save my wife and child today.
We are in the room, and Heather was asking to pump while still in the recovery state. I ran home and got her pump and some new bottles. When I got back the Lactation Consultant was there and we got things started. Heather has gotten out of bed and made the trip to the NICU to see her Sweet baby Boy. Everett and Heather are doing much better now, and we pray that that continues to be the case.
Today has been a whirlwind, but at the end of the day, I have a beautiful wife, a sweet Mary Louise, a handsome David, and a Strong willed Everett. Thank you God for all your blessings, I just wish you would quite testing us so much. I want to thank all our family for their support and quick response, Mere & Pop, MaMom, Collin, and Father Jack was right there to say a pray when it was all over.
I will update tomorrow with pictures.
