Miss Kennedy has arrived!


Finally we have the arrival of Miss Kennedy! It was a long, long night & I still haven't gone to bed. I drove 4 & 1/2 hours last night to get here, and I got here at 7:30pm. However, we still didn't have a baby until 10:12am this morning. And poor Grif, she tried her best to deliver Miss Kennedy but things weren't in her favor, Kennedy was turned with head to the side & Grif just wasn't progressing well, and Kennedy's heart rate kept dropping. So we had a c-section, and during this time Kennedy went into distress & had a meconium birth. My son went into the o.r. for the c-section and it was really hard for him b/c Kennedy had to have CPR and was put on a respirator. Grif asked him how Kennedy was doing & my brave son said, "she's doing great", I couldn't have done it! What a trooper! We sent out prayer request to everyone, and indeed God did answer our prayers, Kennedy was extubated & now on oxygen, has an IV, and a small tube down her throat. She is doing so much better. She will be in ICU tonight & probably all tomorrow. But God is so good. We have a beautiful baby girl, blonde hair, pale blue eyes (just like my son), 6 lbs & 5 oz, and 20 inches long. What a little beauty! And MOM (Grif) was so tired, but she did a great job. Please everyone keep Kennedy in your prayers for her continued progress. What a little sweetheart, thank you God for our sweet little baby. Hugs to our Baby Kennedy! Renea
