Baby Kendall is here!

Hello everyone.. it's Lisa's husband Jeff. To start off everyone is fine and doing well. We had a baby girl Friday morning which most of you already know. Her name is Kendall Faith, she was born at 7:23am, 7 pounds 10 ounces, and 21 1/4 long..and she is absolutely gorgeous! Mom and Kendall were fantastic through the whole delivery process. Unfortunately, there were complications afterwards.

Lisa had felt woozy on Saturday afternoon and decided to tell the nurse. Between Lisa's low HR through the delivery and the feeling woozy they decided to run some tests of her heart and lung areas. The Doctors noticed extra fluid around Lisa's heart and decided to do a Cat Scan of her chest area. They found a small acute blood clot in her lower right part of the lung. She was immediately transferred to the CCU Intensive Care unit of the hospital and was put on blood thinners. After a long night and even longer Sunday with the help of the nurses(our angels) we were able to move Lisa back down to the OB floor to be with Kendall.

Lisa and Kendall will be in the hospital until Friday evening. I'm sure she will update you then. I'll try to pst some pictures tomorrow evening of Kendall and her sister.

Hi, I just found this blog yesterday through MamaC-Ta and enjoyed browsing through some archives. Hope Lisa gets well soon. These are both moments to cherish as well as hard to get by. Will keep you in my prayers. Wish Lisa is fine soon and able to enjoy Kendall to the fullest.

Hi Jeff! It's Megan (Hauflaire)...I met Lisa recently at church! I'm so glad to hear they're doing well. Kendall is beautiful. Please tell Lisa we prayed for her at MOPS this week and we missed her and can't wait to have her back! You look exactly the same, btw. Hope you are well!
