Logan Rylee Bostrom was born on Saint Patrick's Day, March 17th, at 8:55pm. She was born with a mop of beautiful brown hair, ten toes, ten fingers, and two wide little blue eyes. I cut the cord and they placed her on Carrie's chest. She was alert, but a little blue so after a few minutes the pediatric doctor put her on the warmer and listened to her little heart with a little pink stethoscope. I saw her exchange looks with Dr. Clarke that said, "there's not much time." Doctor Clarke handed Logan back to us and told us that we probably didn't have long. We hastily called our family members from the waiting room into the small delivery room and gave Logan a name and blessing. I struggled through the blessing, but by the end of it, Logan's blueish skin had turned pink. She was wide awake and calm. The room emptied out and Carrie and I spent a few minutes with Logan on the delivery bed. The doctors told us that she was doing much better, and so we let each of our family members hold her and then had pictures taken. It's now after one o'clock in the afternoon on Friday and our little angel is still with us. She's sleeping on Carrie's chest. She's breastfeeding, sleeping, fussing, and all the things a baby does. You'd never know there was anything wrong with her. As you can see, she is a beautiful baby. The doctors think that she'll live to go home with us tomorrow, and that we may even have a few weeks with her! We are so happy that she was born alive and that she is so content and comfortable. All of this time we've had is such a blessing. We'll take whatever time the Lord will give us. Thank you all so much for all of your thoughts, prayers, and fasting. We are cherishing our miracle.
Thanks, Julie, for the increcible photo. We can hardly wait to see the rest!
