For the past 9 months I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my nephew, Jacob Brady Kasel, and at last he has finally arrived. I got the call at around 2 o’clock Sunday, November 21, 2010 to come to the hospital.
Finally, at 6:15am Jacob was born at 6 lbs 14 oz and 21 inches long. He did have trouble breathing at first because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck THREE times (very rare) and he aspirated some fluid that filled his lungs. He had to be taken to the NICU where they preceded to suction out the fluid.
After 4 hours we were able to meet the little bugger, and he continues to get stronger each day, though still has a weak cry and weak lungs. He will be going home tomorrow and I cannot wait to watch him grow up! I am officially in love with my nephew!
