Default OttawaBoy

Our son was born on Sunday evening. He was transported to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario last night, and is in surgery right now to repair a defect in his esophogus and trachea (a Trachial-Esophogal-Fistula). He is breathing fine and his heart is good, but there is no connection to his stomach and he cannot feed, except intravenously. In a good outcome, he will be in the hospital for several weeks. Prayers appreciated. I will not often be on the boards but there is a lovely lounge for parents of the NICU and it does have computer access, so eventually I will read messages posted here.

OttawaMum was a trooper. Only laughing gas during labour, which really speeded up her recovery. A tough labour (she was in contractions under 2 minutes apart for most of it) but productive. Was discharged about 12 hours after birth, which is good because he's in a different hospital than her.

Surgeon said the fistula was very short (basically no gap between break and beginning of rest of esphogus which is outstanding for the joining together. We will get to see him again soon.
