My first nephew, Hayden James!
Click here to read about how he came into this world!
I finally got to bed about 2am early Monday morning, but I was ready to go and see my nephew first thing in the morning! Before I left the house I made a bowl of oatmeal like always, 5 points.
This little boy is greatly loved!
If you recall from my post about the birth he wasn’t breathing right when he was born. They thought it was fluid in the his lungs, but then they detected a heart murmur on Hayden.
They ran tests today and found out he has pulmonary hypertension, which means he is breathing like he is still in the womb and not like he should on his own. At birth there are some valves that are supposed to close and then the baby breathes through his lungs, but that didn't happen with Hayden. He was life flighted this evening by helicopter to a larger hospital with a NICU about 2 hours south.
The nurses and doctors said they have seen this before and comparing Hayden to recent cases he was the most stable, so at least that was reassuring.
It was a long, emotional day. My sister, Wendi, had to stay in the hospital here. I am staying with her and hoping to go down to be with Hayden Tuesday morning.
I had a bag of SunChips & a granola bar this evening for 6 points. I’m trying to make smart choices while we are in the hospital. I am committed to this journey!
