Welome to the world Keaton!
We recieved a call at 2am this morning saying Meggie was at the hospital as she had started bleeding and had some pain. What a fright we got, total shock and worry
It was discovered that the placenta had ruptured and an emergency caesar was planned for 9am this morning.
By the time Nanna and I had reached Meggy and Conrad, Meggie was definitely having contractions and a little bit uncomfie - otherwise her and Conrad where the picture of calmness.
Conrad, the amazing Dad that he is, got all of Keatons bags and Meggie things packed and headed back to the hospital early hours of this morning
Meggie and Conrad where so excited - their faces just beamed with delight
Dr Scribante told Megs that Keaton could go to ICU beacause of his lungs being slightly imature being 2 1/2 weeks early.
Megs was wheeled into theatre at 0920am and Keaton arrived at 10.01am , weighing in at 2.51kg, 50cm in length, dark hair and gorgeous!
Megs lost alot of blood during the caesar to do the ruptured placenta, but was very happy at how everything else went.
Conrad and Megs had smiles on their faces the size of watermelons - both beaming with pride and joy.
Thank You Lord , Keaton did not need to go to ICU, but they have put him in an incubator as he was grunting a little - it is thought that his lungs and ribs are not quite ready and will leave him in the incubator and get the paediatrician to come back and check in on him regularly
Promise to update with more news as soon as I can - but in the mean time so photos of Keaton very hot off the press! Please pray for Meggies speedy recovery and for Keaton's breathing to improve.
