Welcome Noah Thomas Singer!
Our little Vikings fan arrived Wednesday, Sept. 19th. He weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. & was 19-5/8" long.
Unfortunately, he was born with his little lungs not fully expanded, a hole in 1 of them & fluid, believed to be Meconium in them. Meconium fluid means he pooped while still in the womb.
He had to be transported by Mayo1 helicopter to a hospital in Rochester, MN better equipped to handle babies with respiratory problems. Thanks to oxygen being given immediately after birth, prayers from family, friends & fellow PP.Oers, he ended up not needing any special respiratory treatment in Rochester. He was put on antibiotics & monitored for 48 hours.
His breathing improved on it's own. The lungs expanded, the hole closed on it's own & the fluid in his lungs ended up being the normal fluids found in babies lungs at birth. The fluid in his lungs was tested & no bacteria or infection was found in it.
He was released on Saturday morning & is home watching his 1st Vikings game with us.
Shortly after birth...
