I'm a grandpa --- again...........
« on: October 07, 2011, 07:39:23 AM »
My newest grandson was born last night. Gabriel arrived at 11:49 PM -- about 9 weeks early. He weighs in at 2lbs 15oz and seems to be doing fine, but is in the NICU. My daughter is recovering from the emergency c-section at a different hospital for the time-being.  I've not yet had a chance to talk to her. 
Praying that he stays as strong as he appeared to be at birth -- he came out screaming, so his lungs appear to be good (a major concern for such a preemie).

Gabriel is number 5 -- 3 boys, 2 girls.  I may have only had one child -- but my genes are sure to go out into the pool for quite a while now........

Christmas is fun (albeit, a bit expensive) -- I love to spoil them.

Thanks to all for your congratulations and your positive energy.  No further updates from my daughter yet, but will keep you posted.

Hugs,
Mike

Update:

Baby Gabriel is off the ventilator and holding his own -- they expect him to be in the hospiital for at least six week.  His daddy is with him right now, as mommy is still at the hospital where he was born (no N-ICU, so off he went).  She's having a tough time mentally, because she can't be with her baby and physically, because the c-section was a tough one and she's having some complications that may require further surgery.

Congrats on the newest addition to your family!  I have 3 grandkids myself, and know exactly what you mean about loving to spoil them.

I hope your grandson's and daughter's situations turn out well.  Sounds like your grandson is doing great, but I am sorry about your daughter possibly needing more surgery.  Hopefully that will not bring more trauma.  I'll be thinking about them both.

Well - good news has come.  My daughter was released from the hospital today -- she has to watch her incision closely though.  She has now, finally, met her new son.  She was still under when he was wisked away to the N-ICU at another hospital.  It was a very tough 48 hrs for her. 
They had actually put her in the same room that she had to deliver her stillborn daughter last year.  So, all she kept thinking was that here she was in the same room, after giving birth, with no baby to hold -- again.  I am so happy that she got better quickly -- I fear that she might have really sunk down low if more time had elapsed.

UPDATE

Little Gabriel continues to do very well.  He is gaining weight - he has blown past the 3 lb. mark now.  They are trying to wean him off the oxygen and they are slowly lowering the temp in is little isolette.  He can't go home until he is able to maintain is body temperature on his own and hits 4 lbs 10 oz. 

My daughter has recovered -- though she has some sort of bug which is keeping her from the baby this week. 

I am hoping to get down there for Veteran's Day weekend (Nov 11) -- but my daughter wants to play it by ear -- she is in a bit of whirlwind, schedule wise.  I am trying to make her see that Grandpa could entertain the 4 older ones while she spends a day at the hospital, or maybe taking a little time for herself -- perhaps with a nice pedi paid by Dad.

I'll be sure to let you know when Gabriel gets to leave the NICU.

I'm glad the Gabrial is getting his weight up a bit more, things are heading in the right direction so you must be happy with the positive changes...it's amazing their how little bodies can fight back.

I hope you manage to visit, I'm sure your daughter will be glad of the help, and I hope she recovers from the bug she has picked up real soon.

Thanks for the update, Mike. I was thinking of little Gabriel just yesterday and hoping he was gaining weight. Sounds like he'll be home in time for Thanksgiving - very appropriate. Sending "gain weight and strength" vibes to the little one.

Things are moving fast.....

Gabriel is now a pudgy 4lbs 1oz AND.....  he's been moved out of his isolette into a "big boy crib".  They are trying a second take with removing the oxygen.  Very happy news.  He even managed a little breast feeding (although that is, apparently, a huge energy sap for a wee little one, so there won't be too much of it).  Looking more and more like he may celebrate his first Thanksgiving at home.

Still waiting for my daughter to give me thumbs up for a visit -- although, I may appear no matter what -- I mean, I stay in a hotel, so................

Thanks again for all the kind thoughts......

Gabriel has moved out of the N-ICU.  He's up to 4.5 lbs and is doing well without oxygen now too.  .

And.............  I will be meeting and holding him on Friday.

Mike

That is good news indeed Mike, so glad the wee one is making great headway...I bet you can't wait to hold him.

Don't want to Hi-Jack your thread but..I'm waiting on news anytime now about my great granddaughter, my granddaughter (grandson's wife) is in hospital now being induced, hopefully she won't be in labour too long.

Gabriel has moved out of the N-ICU.  He's up to 4.5 lbs and is doing well without oxygen now too.  .

And.............  I will be meeting and holding him on Friday.

Hugs,
Mike

Mike I hope you have a wonderful time Friday, I have a feeling you will.  It's so cool that Gabriel is getting stronger so quickly.  Good wishes, still, for the baby and mama.  And have fun bonding!

Thanks all.  If I can figure out how to do it, I'll post a pic of me and Gabriel when I return.

Well, Gabriel must have heard that grandpa was coming on Friday -- because he will be heading home for the hospital on Friday afternoon!!  Can't wait to see him and hold him tomorrow.

all your good thoughts seemed to work wonders

thanks,

That's fantastic news, Mike. Little Gabe must be quite a fighter. Have fun and take loads of photos!
