Kathryn Morgan Goodson Arrives
Kathryn Morgan Goodson was born on Feb 17th at 4:51 pm. She weighed in at 6lbs 2oz. She is a beautiful little girl. Mom is feeling pretty good and recovering nicely.
Kat has two heart defects. One is which we have known since we started our blog. The other is truncus arteriosis type 2. The doctors have seen each one separately, but not both in the same child. There are only 14 documented cases of this in the world. Kathryn is the 15th case. The cardiac team and the surgeons are going to meet in the next few days. They will decide when they are going do surgery. They are optimistic and she is now breathing on her own. She is stable now. We got to hold her and rock her for quite a while.
Cate, Kat's big sister, has been passed around the neighborhood. She has been having a blast with everybody. She gave big hugs and kisses to her baby sisters pictures. Cate will be a great big sister! We would like to thank all of our friends who have helped us take care of her. We are truly amazed by the out pouring of support.
We will try to update the blog as much as possible, each step along the way. Thank you again to everybody for their thoughts and prayers. We definitely need them!
