My New Brother

December 20, 2009 in Uncategorized

I wanted to let everyone know that Brennan Justin was born yesterday (December 19th) at 3:22 pm. He weighed 5 lbs and 14 oz, and he was 19 inches long. They are keeping him in the NICU at the moment, because my mom was only 34 weeks pregnant when he was born. We were told that he would be in the NICU for at least seven to ten days, but today my parents were told since he is breathing on his own and eating they might move him out of the NICU. Hopefully he will be able to spend his first Christmas at home with his family! He has not had his Newborning Screening done yet, but I will keep you guys updated on whether or not we have another PKU baby in the Hardy family :). alt

    Hey Katie, I will definitely bring pictures to Dallas. Because he is in the NICU, they are only letting four visitors over eighteen and my parents see him. My five younger sisters are very bummed out that they haven’t gotten to hold him yet. Let’s just cross our fingers that he gets out of the NICU soon, and of course if he is home for his first Christmas that would be awesome!!

    He is so handsome! My little Dylan is 11 weeks old today, and it seems like I just left the hospital with him. They grown up way to quick! Keep us posted on his screening results! Congrats on the addition to your family! He is just perfect!

    Thanks again you guys. My mom said they did Brennan’s Newborn Screening today. They had it sent via Fed-ex, so we may possibly know by tomorrow. If not tomorrow, then we will know by Wednesday.

    Good news: It doesn’t look like Brennan has PKU :). My parents are going to have the Newborn Screening done again just to be on the safe side, but our dietitian told us that his phe levels from his first Newborn Screening appear completely normal.
