Extra, Extra! Hear All About It!

With Jaime Wright-Sundsmo's permission, below are the details of Baby Chloe Joann's arrival.

Hi all!

The long awaited day came Tue am at 3:06. Chloe JoAnne is here! Our amazing little gal arrived 3 weeks early with a healthy birth weight of 7 lbs 3 oz but with underdeveloped lungs.

She is currenty being incubated with nasal c-pap oxygen at the NIC-U. While she's not in danger its hard leaving her there at night and difficult for me being there without being able to lay down to recoup myself. (Though may I extol the amazingness of the epidural?!?!?!)

That's the news!! Thnx to all for your prayers the last 9 and would appreciate a few more as we cross the hurdle of getting our Chloe home sometime in the next week or two!

Congratulations, Jaime and Hubby! Let's keep Baby Chloe in prayer, so she can join her Mama and Daddy at home.

Hi Sharon -

Right after I posted this, Jaime contacted me and said they took the baby off the oxygen. Yay! They still don't know when she can come home.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Kristen -

She was a good weight for being three weeks early. If Jaime'd gone full term, she might have been over eight pounds.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Woohoo! I'm so glad you posted this since I haven't checked out my dashboard for a while!

Will be praying that her little lungs catch up quick so Jaime can bring her home.

Thanks for the news!

Hi Jess -

I received word from Jaime that Chloe is off the oxygen. They still don't know when the doctor will allow her to go home.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Katie -

It's more than amazing. It's miraculous. We've been praying for Jaime since before she got pregnant.

Thanks for Sharing Susan! I saw the pics on her facebook page too... what a beautiful little girl!

Praying a ton for little Chloe! SO very glad she's off oxygen and doing a better!

Hi Krista -

You're welcome. With Jaime still recovering from the birth and visiting the baby, I figured she had her hands full. She wanted all of her blogger buddies to know about Chloe's arrival.

I'll have to check out her Facebook page.

Blessings,
Susan :)
