Wyatt’s Arrival

Due on July 17th, Wyatt was past due when we found out that he had a condition called Diaphragmatic Hernia.  Which means that there was a hole in his diaphragm and part of his intestines had moved up into his chest around his heart/lungs.  The artery leading to his left lung was compressed limited blood flow to the lung.  Wyatt was delivered by c-section on July 22nd so that he could be immediately treated by a pediatric surgery team and neonatal intensive care team at University of Kentucky Hospital.  We were told that they had to stabilize his lungs and allow the compromised artery to repair itself and the lung.  Once that had happened there would be a surgery to repair the damaged diaphragm.  He was born at 12:57, weighed 9lbs and 10 oz, and measured 20 1/4 inches long upon arrival.
