My name is Tracie. I am a good friend of Tiffani's and she asked me to be a guest blogger today and update all of you on the birth of her new son. I spent the whole day with her and was there for her through her entire labor and delivery, and it was AWESOME! Tiffani is such a trooper and so strong. She is my hero.
Andrew Martin Stauffer was born at 11:39pm on Monday, January 5th, 2009. He weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs. 7 oz. and is 20 1/2 inches long. He has chubby cheeks and fat rolls on his thighs, and a touch of hair on his head. He is gorgeous!
Labor and delivery went as expected. It was a long day for Tiffani, but no real complications. Andrew had pooped while still cozy and warm inside mom so as soon as he came out, they suctioned him out. He was having labored breathing so they took him to the nursery to do an x-ray and found that he has an air bubble pressing on one of his lungs. They have him in an oxygen tent and are trying to break up the air bubble to ease his breathing. He is ok and will be fine, but Tiffani and Marty are asking for your prayers to lift Andrew up to God to heal him quickly. Tiffani only got to hold him for a brief moment and she misses him.
Thanks for keeping updated and being a part of Tiffani's life. I know she appreciates all of you.
With love and blessings,
