Well, the little (eh hem, not so little...) Baby Michael Mighty Mouse is here!!!

Praise God he was born at 2:21 am - ACTUALLY 1:20 am because of the time change - Sunday morning Nov. 2nd.

I am doing well after a short labor time (about 3 hours) and an epidural.

Baby Michael Darin was born 9 lb 11.5 oz - without a C-section! 21" long.

Please keep us in your prayers, however, because we will be traveling to Children's Hospital today - baby via special van / ambulance ride. He has an enlarged heart and also some possible breathing issues (turned blue twice already...). The small hospital here doesn't have the equipment to diagnose these issues any farther, only watching them from here.

Please pray the doctors there will be able to diagnose his problems and there will be solutions. You could also pray, if it is His will that He would take away these problems Supernaturally and Baby Mighty Mouse (as his big brother B calls him) would be healed of any problems and will grow up healthy and normal.

We are expecting to stay in Seattle 3 - 4 days or more depending on what they find.

Hopefully more later! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!

(pictures when I can...)

Congrats! I'll be praying for your baby! Sounds like you had a nice easy labor!

Oh, I hope my labor is only 3 hours long... somehow I doubt it will be! sigh

Our little nephew Michael will be in our prayers most certainly. I can only imagine how you must be feeling, and I pray he will be fixed up immediately! PLEASE keep us updated! We love you all!
