Sorry it's taking so long to get you up to date, but we have a beautiful bouncing baby boy!!
Liam Douglas Kelley was born on October 9, 2003. He was 5 lbs, 5 oz. 18 1/2" long. Born at 12:15pm. He has a head of brown hair and is very cute. Right now, he's in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at A.I. DuPont hospital and dad and grandparents have been visiting him a lot. Mom is still over at Christiana hospital, recovering from her section, but they're saying that she may actually be able to come over to A.I. today! She's very excited and ready to touch and hold her baby for the first time.
Liam is looking good. He has a few tubes and wires hooked up to him to monitor his status. They had a breathing tube in yesterday from right after the birth until he got to A.I., but they took the tube out yesterday evening and he's breathing okay on his own. He's being monitored constantly and is in very good hands.
We're hoping to talk to Dr. Norwood today to find out when he thinks Liam should have surgery. However, he's doing so well that most of the folks we've talked to here seem to think that he won't need surgery today for sure. So, it may very well be early next week. We'll know more when we talk to Dr. Norwood...and once we have reliable internet access, I'll update the site with all the great pictures that we have of our wonderful baby boy.
Chris, Heather, and Liam Kelley
