Sydney is here!. She arrived on wed. Nov 5th at 9:35 am. via c-section. She was pink and tried to cry. She was holding her own but around 3:00 decided to put her on ecmo. She has been doing well ever since. She is beautiful. She looks a lot like Emily, same color hair. A lot of hair and looks like it might be on the curly side. She has the cutest nose that she squooshes up when she is irratated. She does not like the lights in the nicu or when other babies cry! And she hates haveing her diaper changed.
She is doing so much better than they thought she would. The hernia is on the right side and a portion of the liver is up in the chest. She does have a left lung that is a good size. Her intestines and stomache are also in the chest. We are hopeing that surgery can happen in the next two weeks. No rush, she is just chillin. So far all of the nurses are very nice and informative. We do have pictures I just have to wait to get home to upload them. I hope to do that Sunday or Monday.Thank You all for your prayers and support. We definatley have something to be greatful for!

Congrats! Rest up on ECMO little Sydney, and get geared up for surgery.

I heard of you through Heather Morgan, and have been thinking of your family constantly.

The CDH community is amazing, and if you ever need to talk, vent, or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask any one of us.

Can't wait to see that cute little nose of yours Sydney!
