Hey everyone. Sorry that we haven't updated yet. We have been extremely busy for the last 48 hours. We've hardly even had time to sleep.
Well here's the news you have all been waiting for. Cali Koryn was born last night, 9/5/09, at 9:50. It was a very long process and Cali really didn't want to leave the safety of the womb. When she came we only had a few seconds with her because they wanted to rush her over to the Neonatal ICU. Shortly after I was able to visit her and get a little quality time with her. She is a beautiful little girl at 8 lbs 6.5 oz. He has a good bit of hair and it is quite curly.
Since delivery they have been testing, checking and double checking Cali. We have received a bit of bad news regarding Cali's heart. They confirmed the diagnosis of HLHS but during the EKG they had a very difficult time finding the pulmonary veins. This could be very bad because without those veins there is probably not much that can be done for Cali. So we have opted to have an exploratory procedure in which a catheter is used to find out the exact anatomy of her heart. This is risky, but necessary step in being able to continue on as we had hoped. Cali is currently undergoing the procedure so we ask for your prayers and hope sent our way. We will try to update later tonight. Thanks for all of your support.
