He's Here!!!

Joshua Reed Burchett

Born on the Forth of July! I have very few details as I only got to see him for a minute before they whisked him away to the NICU. He weighs 5 pounds 5 ounces. His initial APGAR score was a 1 but came up to a 7 at the five minute mark. He is having the typical breathing problems that they expect for a 35 week boy (apparently girls are stronger) and may be in the NICU for a week. I am doing everything I can to get my legs moving so that I can go visit him. I'll fill in more details when we have them.
