Rebecca has arrived!
Rebecca Irene Cotell was born this morning at 9:40 weighing a tiny 4 pounds and 3 ounces with a feisty spirit and a lot of brown hair!
The diagnosis of Trisomy 18 was confirmed as was the esophageal atresia so she was transported to Brenner Children's Hospital where the will hopefully be able to do surgery to repair her esophagus tonight
The nurse wheeled me, hospital bed and all, into the NICU at Forsyth where I was able to hold her for a glorious 5 minutes before the transport team took her to the other hospital.
She was crying until they put her in my arms and then she stopped immediately. Baby girl recognized her mommy!
Please pray that she is able to have the surgery this evening and that all goes well. Please also pray that I am well enough to be released tomorrow so that I can be with Rebecca.
