What a GREAT Christmas gift, Lorie! My son Michael(our baby) was born on the 21st, and Kristin (the oldest) on the 28th. Makes the Christmas season that much more fun!

Hello and welcome to baby Joshua. Congratulations Lorie and John. Nothing is more precious than a new baby, especially at Christmas. Good to hear that Heather and Ben are doing okay.
Let's see some photos of that new grandbaby.

Thanks for all the nice wishes sent our way. We are still waiting to get to hold our little grandson. Unfortunately, he was born with fluid in his lungs and stomach and he now has pneumonia.

The doctor said sometimes that happens with very fast deliveries and that he should be doing better within the next 72 hours.

This is my son-in-law Ben with Joshua when he was 2 hours old. smile

What a handsome young man!!! My grandson had the same things when he was born by c-section-doing great within a few days. Was hard though as we couldn't hold him until then. Could only "touch" through the incubator with these built in gloves.(like Nasa or something! laugh Just wasn't the same!
Thanks for sharing your new grandson with us!!!!!

Still haven't got to hold the baby yet. frown We were all hoping that Heather and Josh could go home from the hospital this morning.

I talked with Heather and she said they were going to do more testing and evaluate Josh at 7:00pm tonight. He still needs to get a little more stable with his numbers before they will release him. The good thing is that he has been taken off his IV's. smile
