FC: Kobe Joseph Huston June 4, 2009 | Our Miracle Baby!! | I t s a B o y
1: Ryleigh couldn't wait to meet you!! | Ready to POP!!
2: You were due July 6th, but decided to bless us with your presence June 4th. | You were having trouble breathing when you were born so they life-flighted you to St. V's | 1st picture | Mommy couldn't leave the hospital yet, but daddy and aunt April met you there. | BIRTHDAY: June 4, 2009 | TIME: 6:35am
3: Our first picture | WEIGHT: 6lb 1 1/2 oz | HEIGHT: 17 3/4 in | When I finally got to the hospital you had a tube down your throat to help you breath and you had a lot of swelling, especially in you face.
4: They diagnosed you with Hydrops, but truth was nobody knew what was wrong with you. The fluid kept building up on your lungs so they had to insert chest tubes on both sides to drain the fluid. | This Was "Home" for your 1st month of life
5: After a month and a half, you got a staff infection (pneumonia) and they moved you to your own room. | and found you a big boy crib
6: First Time | The nurses were amazing. They told me when the chest tubes cam out that I could finally hold you. I was so excited when the tubes came out, but they said I still couldn't hold you because of the vent. They were afraid that if it came out, they wouldn't be able to put it back in. | I started to cry, you were a month and a half and I had never held you or even heard you cry. The nurse could see that I needed to hold you so she made it happen.
7: Holding You | T | The next day daddy got his turn. After we held you everything started to improve!
8: When you were ready, you pulled you I.V. out and the fluid stopped. You pulled your catheter out and started going like you should, you pulled your vent out and started breathing on you own. and next thing you know.... | You were a MIRACLE BABY!!
9: We were going home!!
10: WELCOME HOME | You came home August 20 | You had a feeding tube in your nose because you wouldn't eat enough out of a bottle.. We were so happy to have you home!!
