His name is Archer Edmund. We are calling him Archie.
He is very, very sick.
This afternoon, he began grunting and having a difficult time breathing. I told a nurse, who thought we’d run him to the nursery for a quick visit. We thought he was simply worn out from nursing constantly and the c-section.
Before I knew it, he was on oxygen, getting blood gases, CBC, other labs, chest x-rays, and an IV placed. He also has a tube running down his throat to drain air, which was building. As of this moment, we do not know what is wrong with him. It is all so sudden and I am beside myself. I am supposed to be pumping, but I needed to let my friends know this is a true hour of need.
