Welcome Baby Judson!!
My brother Cord and his wife Heather had their fourth child on December 27th! I've been meaning to post for so long, but I'm just know finding time to sit down and collaborate my thoughts. I'm such a proud Aunt and was so honored to be in the room when he was born. He weighed 6lb. 4oz., 20 in. long (their biggest baby so far).
As many of you know, Judson stopped breathing 6 hours before they were to go home. They stabilized him and rushed him to the NICU. The last few days they've been running test to try and figure out what's wrong with him. So far they haven't found anything that looks too alarming. He has been throwing up his food and the doctors think that he may have severe reflux. This is a huge praise b/c reflux can be fixed with medicine. He is still in the NICU and they are still running test. Please keep Cord and Heather in your prayers. Heather's parents have the other kids with them in Hattiesburg. Cord and Heather are staying in a hotel room connected to the hospital so she can nurse every 2 hours. Please also pray that baby Judson will gain wait and continue to gain strength daily. They are trusting in the Lord for each moment. I know they appreciate and feel your prayers. Thank you!
I will be posting a recap from our holidays soon. Tripp has changed so much!!!! He is into everything.....he pulls up on anything and everything and crawls around the house constantly!
