If you're searching for truth,
You must look in the mirror,
And make sense of what you can't see.

Sophia has her own category in the family photo album, it's a small collection, but will grow as we get new pictures.

I'll keep this post brief, as I need to get back to the hospital...

 At 05:11 PM on 05/06/2009, our baby girl was born at Christiana Hospital.  She weighed 7 pounts, 2 ounces.  Both the baby and her mother are safe and stable.  We've got lots of pictures, but I've only had time to edit a few.  Here's one for now:

We've got a few new images in the photo gallery, but here's the best of the recent set:

Additionally, we've got some news... It's confirmed that we're having a girl.  Although not solid yet, we're leaning toward Sophia as the new critter's name.

Secondarily, we're received some less-than-pleasant news regarding the pregnancy.   It looks like Wick is at a very high risk of hemmorhage (due to the placenta tearing free prematurely).  She's likely going to be in the hospital for the last 6-8 weeks of her pregnancy.  At this point, we've been told that the next episode of bleeding will start her admission to the hospital.  We're hoping to keep her out past Christmas; but it's not a guarantee.  The risk of blood loss is pretty high, so it's best to keep her near the OR.  We need to keep the kid cooking for at least 24 weeks to have a 50% chance of survival with premature delivery.  We'll try to keep her as long as possible, but 01/15/09 is the minimum for survival.  02/15/09 is the date where the odds become more acceptable.  Remember, our actual "due date" isn't until 05/2009.

Since Wick is so high risk, she gets lots of pictures.
