Amber just called me, and Jimmie has been born. He is in the NICU and his daddy is with him right now. The NICU team intubated him in the room, and right now he is on 30% oxygen, which is pretty darn good. The NICU staff said they would update in an hour or so.
When they went to take the stitch out of Rachael's cervix, she was fully dilated. She pushed a couple of times, and Jimmie was here! Please pray for the NICU staff, that God gives them wisdom to make the right decisions on how to care for Jimmie. And, pray for Jimmie, that his little lungs grow strong, and that he fights hard!
This little guy needs everyone's prayers right now.
No word on how much he weighed, they estimated about a pound and a half.
Please remember, that there IS hope for little Jimmie. There are many, many babies that make it with no long term effects. Let's pray that Jimmie is one of those "miracle babies".
As I hear anything else, I will let you know.
