change of plans

M here:

First of all, thank you all so much for your kind words and enthusiasm, it has been a joy to read your comments as they have come in and we truly appreciate it.

K is recovering well from her c-section. She is getting up and around some and I think is feeling more and more human every day. Looks like she will be discharged Wednesday. She has been so brave and I'm so proud of her.

Elliot is also doing very well but has indeed developed pneumonia (it was a possibility after his delivery, we were hoping he would fight it off) and needs to stay in the special care unit for 7 days to receive antibiotics. We are pretty crushed that we won't be able to get him home before this weekend. He is improving so much though, the respirators have been removed and has even been doing very well breastfeeding. We understand though, that really we are really lucky, 7 days is peanuts to what some Moms have to endure before getting their babies home.

I just can't wait for the day that our family is home together and have all this behind us.

OMG what a CUTIE!!! Elliot is so gorgeous and sounds like a little trooper. It must have been so disapointing to watch your birth plan go out the window and now have your beautiful boy come down with pneumonia, but I'm glad to hear that you are both doing better and you will soon have your family together. Thanks for the pic - what a treat!

He is just beautiful! I am sorry his entrance to the world was a tough but hope that means perfectly smooth seas from here on out. Sending much love to all 3 of you.

Oh my! Even though others have to endure worse, this is still a big deal--no need to qualify your pain to me!
He's lovely!
Congratulations

Congrats!!! He is beautiful. I can tell you from my experience, it is really tough leaving the hospital without your baby, but it is one of those things you just get through and once he is home with you in a few days, it is all just water under the bridge. I hope both you and Elliot have a painless recovery.
