Day 1 - A little surprise!

So, busy night last night.  Went to the hospital for gas pains and ended up with a baby boy!  Aidan Robert Gerlica has joined our family as of 10:22PM.  4lbs., 4oz., 17.25 inches long.  Pretty darn big for a 31 week baby.  He was transferred down to Rainbow and all is reasonably well so far.  Obvious concerns about lung development and possible infection, but he's responding well to everything they're doing.  He is (as of this morning) still on a ventilator, but they've already ended the supplementary O2 - just straight room air now.  Looking as good as can be for now!
