Heidi is just having a ball with the back labor! She just had a nice bath, and we had some dinner. Lori is going to be on her way over in about an hour to help me out. Labor is tough work for dads, I can't even imagine what it is like for moms!!

Hang in there. It's all worth it. I will pray the back labor ends, it IS very painful. I had it with Kim. Wish there were a magic potion to get you both through this easier. Just know everyone is praying for you!

Mom

Hope all is going well. I am off to bed, but i want to hear from either you or mom no matter what time of night! Tell Heidi we are sending our love and wishing her a speedy delivery!!!!! I remember the pain well, the plus side is the second she sees the baby it will only be a small memory and a whole bundle of emotions will take over! Oh yeah, Lucas is predicting a GIRL!!!! We'll see???? Great coaching Dennis (and Lori)

Edmund Phillip was born this morning and was taken to the hospital due to fluid in his lungs. He is in the NICU right now and it isn't good. Please pray for strength for Dennis and Heidi and that Edmunds respitory system will take over (he is currently on a respirator).

Just got an update and he is doing better than at 6am. He is starting to breathe on his own. There is still a long road ahead.

I am at the hospital so email if you need anything.

My mom is on the way to the hospital now. Dennis just called her and said Edmund is still breathing a little on his onw, but he is still on getting help from the respirator. They just took the baby to get a brain scan to see if there is any damage and to check his tissue to see if there is any damage there. Please keep praying, he is not out of the woods and can use every little prayer.
Dennis' sister, Nancy

We are so happy to hear that Edmund has arrived! Ava went down the same path Edmund has gone down with a respirator and all and she has no complications. We pray for the same outcome for Edmund. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this time!
