Iain James Pitman is Here!

Finally, after 43 hours. Full long story and more pictures to come when we get time!

Beth is doing fine and Iain is doing great for now. He is in the NICU and he has a lot of swelling in the back of his head due to the fluid - but his vitals are good and the surgeons have said that no immediate intervention is needed. Lots more tests to follow today...

  4. What a relief that Iain is here! We are so overjoyed for you and still deeply in prayer that Beth will recover from the extensive labor and that Iain will thrive in NICU and be returned to you quickly!

    Celebrating with you- Mary Ellen

  8. Congratulations, you guys! Wow, that must have been a long labor! Now it's time to rest. Ha ha! I'll be praying for you all, and, Beth, I'm going to need a good long phone conversation (phone conversation? what's that?) sometime in the next few months to catch up!
