Surpise! Our little fighter was born around 8am, at 27 weeks + 5 days. She weighs a gianormous 2lbs 11oz and is a whopping 14 inches long. As you can see from the photo, she currently needs help breathing from a ventilator and has a few lines and tubes attached to her. For her age, she is doing quite well. To be safe though, she will be transferred to St Louis Children's Hospital later today. Being born this early has many risks and potential complications. Pray that she'll avoid every one of 'em.
Sara was amazing and is recovering quickly from all the drugs they've hit her with over the last three months. Pray that she'll get out of the hospital quickly so that she can see our little in person!
We love you all,
Matt + 5 (sounds like a TLC show?)
