Brianna Renee's Journey Begins - Day 2

Hello Everyone! Kevin & I are pleased to announce that our baby girl Brianna made her appearance on Sunday, January 6, 2002 at 10:29 am. She weighed in at 5 lbs 14 oz, was a tad under 19” long, & is absolutely beautiful (at least we sure think so!!)

Labor & delivery went very well & lasted for 8 ½ hours. I had her at home in a big portable tub with NO DRUGS!! Unfortunately things didn’t go according to plans & we made the decision to go to the hospital about an hour after she was born. Without going into much detail now, please know that we are both doing well. I have spent the last 2 days at Providence hospital to be close to Brianna. She is currently resting comfortably in intensive care. That is the best place for her to be right now & she is being very well taken care & we hope to have her home in a few days.

Please don’t worry & just keep us in your prayers. They are running some more tests & we hope to then be able to bring her home. When things calm down a bit, I will send another email giving more details. As for now, we are spending lots of time at the hospital comforting her & soaking in all the joys of being new parents!!
