Guess Who Surprised Us All!!!




Precious little Kellan John Magill decided to come 4 weeks early and surprise mommy and daddy this morning about 3:30 AM! He's having a bit of oxygen and monitoring in the NICU here, but all signs are great. His heart, lungs and everything are healthy and well. He kicks hardily, exercises his lungs (!), sucks his pacifier, drinks from a bottle as of this afternoon, and has a beautiful complexion. Can you believe his long curly hair!!???
Jessica wanted all of you to see his earliest pictures. She's doing well, but is in pain and very tired. After the C-section, the drs. had to do some minor surgery (removed an ovary) and some clean up of areas. But, she hopes to be up enough to sit in a wheelchair to see Kellan this evening and to feed him.
My heart goes out to her because she wants so much to have him in her arms. Please all of you pray that she will be able to hold him close very soon.
Love to all,
Your friend and new Grammie! Deb

Oh! Oh!! Oh my!! I can't believe it! Oh, he's beautiful! And I so sympathize with Jessica - soon after Arden was born, they took him away and I couldn't hold him either. That's the worst feeling ... tell her it'll be no time at all before she has that precious boy in her arms, right where he belongs!

And congratulations to everyone! :D Gosh, I've got a huge, goofy smile on my face ...

Hi Deb or should I say Grammie??

Congratulations to you and your family and most especially to your daughter Jessica. She's been through a lot but she's got an adorable wee boy to celebrate with. He's gorgeous! I'm sure it won't be long before she's cradling him in her arms.

Bet you find your stitching mojo now that you've got this little man here to inspire and delight you.

Best wishes

My DS was 6 weeks early so I know what it's like to have a baby in NICU, although I had 2 days when he was in a different hospital! Love and best wishes to you all, especially Jessica and Kellan.

Hope Jessica doesn't find the recovery too heavy going and I'm sure she'll be able to give Kellan a good cuddle soon. Hospitals here are very much in favour of skin contact between mother and baby so encourage that between mother and baby even in NICU. Hope Jessica finds the same.

Oh Deb you and your family are all very blessed. He is an absolutely beautiful baby boy!! I just love his curly hair. See what happens when I don't keep up with reading my blogs!
My youngest son, who just celebrated his birthday on May 30, was also born 4 wks early and is the biggest of the lot now.
Congratulations to all of you.
