He's finally here!!!!

He's finally here! Edward Harvey Gagnon IV graced us with his presence at 7:59am weighing in at a whopping 7lbs 8oz! (Which is huge considering they thought he'd be too small).  First thing Eddie told me after seeing him was "he's so hairy!"  Too funny! He has lots of dark hair. He is perfect.

His surgery was started about 10:00am and finished about 4:30pm. It went amazingly his leison is extremely low and apparently the nerve endings that normally don't find where they're supposed to go in this type of SB, somehow found all the places they belonged even with his SB. This means physically he'll most likely be just fine! Just fine, I can't believe it!  So now they'll be watching his brain and monitoring the hydro to decide whether or not he'll need a shunt placed.

I've never been happier! I've never felt luckier!  I'm just waiting to go see him and love all over him. Thank you to everyone whose shown us so much love today!  We love you all! Here's baby Eddie's first picture!
