Please welcome our little baby Isabelle Tse Yu Player. Born 2:30 this afternoon via c section. She was 8lbs.
She came out crying and with strong lungs. They didn’t need to intubate her. They gave her nasal prongs but she promptly ripped them off. She also got a repogle to keep her stomach empty. She also ripped that out a few times, along with her heart monitor stickers. She had the nurses running around getting her tubes back in.
While at the Foothills hospital I was able to have a little bit of skin to skin time with her which was amazing. Little miss just wanted to nurse right away, and cried since she wasn’t allowed to. That broke my heart a little bit.
The omphalocele looks good to me – of course I am not an expert but there is skin covering half the defect which I think is a very good thing. The surgeon came to see her but we didn’t get a chance to meet with her. All they said so far is no surgery today.
I am so proud of my little girl who grew so strong in her baby house. I am really much more confidant now that she is here and I have seen her.
For now baby and mommy are separated, but daddy is with Isabelle and mommy has a great support team here at the hospital with her doula and her nurses. Hopefully I will get a day pass tomorrow to see my girl.
