Tripp Ryan Thomas, 6/29/2011, 7 lbs 13 oz...
Tripp ended up in the NICU for having residual fluid in his lungs. The next 24 hours were really a blur. Richard came back and forth between the baby and I giving me updates and trying to make sure we were both doing okay. Tripp had a pretty steady decline in the beginning. they started with oxygen and by Thursday afternoon he was on a cpap machine to help him breathe and antibiotics to ward off infection. He has now stabilized and we are anxiously awaiting the upswing toward healing.
We have let go of expectations of him joining us in our room or going home when we do. We are both just clinging to the hope that he is going to fully recover from this and we will be a normal sleepless new baby family before too long!
God is in control and no one knows that better than Richard and I. Please pray for healing for baby Tripp and patience for Richard and as we embark on this long journey to get him healthy and home and incorporated into our family. Enjoy the pictures, he is a cutey!
