Well, as promised Zoe Madison Lihn decided to join us today. She was born at 6:46. She is surprisingly big for a heart baby, weighing in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces (the exact same birth weight as her big sister). Although, unlike her sister, Zoe was born with a full head of dark hair.
Other than her pesky heart defect, the medical team said she looked great!! We got to hold her for 10 minutes or so, before she was passed through the window and handed over to the intensive care team for inspection. They took her away to get hooked up to the neccesary machines and equipment and get her set up in the cardiac intensive care unit. We will get to go visit her in a couple hours.
We have not yet met with the cardiac and cardio-thoracic surgical teams, but I suspect Zoe's first open heart surgery, the Norwood, will take place on Friday (that's just a guess, so it's subject to change).
In the meantime, mom performed like an all-star and is doing great!!
As you can see, Zoe Madison is beautiful:
