August 1st, 2008 he is here.

So this update will be a little different.

At about 1:30pm on August 1st, Tia's water broke. We called her OB, and they told me to taker her to labor and delivery.
At 6:43pm that same night, we had a great little boy. Ethan came out at exactly 8 lbs, and 21 inches.

We have had the opportunity to see baby Ethan already. He looks so good! The doctor has already taken x-rays of his chest to see what's what. The final decision on what is going on in his chest is as follows. Both lungs were almost fully developed at birth. Only a small amount of his intestines, and all of his stomach is in his chest. He is still intubated and sedated. He will be going into surgery in a few days.

Tia is in a lot of pain right now, but getting by. These meds are great!

Well, it is past 1am, and I am falling asleep writing this. Please enjoy the pictures I've uploaded

Thank you all for your prayers so far. We still have a lot ahead of us.

So please keep praying, and we will definateltley keep you all in the loop.

Thank you all, and take care!

- Kip, Tia, Riley and Ethan -
