Brennan is Here!

Our special guy is finally here! Brennan was born on October 6th, 2009. He weighed in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. Janalee did awesome and was a real trooper. Looking at her now she doesn't even look like she just had a baby.

Brennan is currently doing well. All of his stats are good but as with a lot of heart kids it can quickly change. They've started him on the prostaglandin which will keep a duct open to better circulate blood to his lungs. We won't know if he'll need the shunt until tomorrow.

This is as good as an outcome as we could have hoped for. Brennan came out screaming and bright pink. To be honest I was expecting more of a shade of blue. After he was born they literally passed him through a window into the NICU at the U. Once they made sure he was doing good I got to walk along with him in a cart that is basically a mobile NICU. They transported him to the PICU(pediatric ICU) where he is now comfortably sleeping.

We are grateful to our Heavenly Father for blessing us with this beautiful baby boy. Thank you so much for all the prayers and fasting so far, it really has helped. Check out the cute pics:

Hurray! He's here! He looks GREAT! And Janalee looks awesome, too.

How hard it must have been to not be able to hold him as much as you want to as a new mom and dad. But we are thrilled that he is doing so well.

Janalee - the long wait is over!

Congrats, Adams family!
