Waylon Alan Hughes was born on Friday, June 12, 2015, at 9:13 p.m. He weighed 5 lbs. 11 oz. and was 19 in. long. His gestational age was 35 weeks and 6 days. He was born as the result of induction after four hospitalizations in four weeks due to a bowel obstruction.
He and I were able to come home after a three-day hospital stay and thankfully he did not have to spend any time in the NICU. He is perfectly healthy and was already back to his birth weight after just four days.
Other than the initial complication of the bowel obstruction, the labor and birth process went smoothly. I began immediately feeling better after the birth and my ostomy seems to be good as new!
For now, I’m just spending my time obsessing over this little one.
