Thanks for all the congrats, I'm sorry I just now saw them, I haven't been on the computer lately.
I wanted to give you guys an update. We decided to name him Isaac Douglass, he is so adorable and such a fighter.
He came out crying and mad, which is great. I only got to hold him wrapped up for a couple minutes before they took him to the nicu because he was having issues breathing. I haven't been able to hold him since. He was grunting, having retractions and just uncomfortable in general because of his struggle. They started out with just a little hood over his head to try and give him more oxygen, that wasn't enough so they went to a cpap machine, but eventually intubated him to take the stress off him. It was a scary decision at first, but definitely the best one for him. As soon as they did it he immediately relaxed and slept. They gave him surfactin in the tube to help his lungs expand. He was only intubated for 19 hours and he's back on the cpap doing awesome now.
They had to put a central line into his umbilical cord and it goes almost to his heart and is fragile, so I won't be able to hold him until it's out. It definitely sucks, but he's doing great. He's not eating yet, and won't until his lung issues are figured out, even then it will be a slow introduction. I am pumping and saving it in the nicu for him though.
Sorry this got long, I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on. Thanks for all your well wishes and congrats, it means so much to know you guys are thinking about us.
