It’s a girl! Briella Roylynn Luse has joined her 3 sisters in the big wide world. Shortly after the last update earlier today her heart rate began to fall. They quickly did a ultrasound and after a low score and no movement it was decided that it was time to take our breech baby. Within a few minutes Lori was in for her surgery and just a little while later a little squeal was heard from Briella as she was sent to the adjoining room to get checked out. Though not even 3 pounds she was breathing, kicking, and full of life. She is now resting in NICU and is doing well. She will be there for several weeks as she will need to be monitored until she gets a little bigger. We will have some pictures on our website of her soon and maybe next week she will get to meet some of you.
Lori is doing great. She is in a postpartum room and is so happy but pretty sleeping after a big afternoon. She will be off most of her IVs tomorrow and will be ready for visitors. We are so thankful for how God allowed “situations” to occur all through the week to bring about a safe delivery and a healthy baby girl. Thank you too for the prayer, texts, and emails of encouragement.
