Michael Doucet's Journal (October 9, 2007): Kenai's Arrived! He's Here! :)

Michael Doucet and Jenna Aurora, his wife, are new parents yet again, to another little boy.

Tuesday, October 9, 2007, Anchorage, Alaska~

Dear Journal~

Michael here. I am exhausted, exhausted like  you wonldn't believe, but he's here! Our second son, Kenai Remington, is here--a month early, perhaps, but in fairly good health. He's rather small, and he's having some problems breathing, but the NICU staff is keeping tabs on him. If any problems do come up, they can help him at once.

Otherwise, he's perfect: ten tiny toes, ten tiny fingers, about 15" long, just a little squirt, with a headful of fuzzy black hair that's sticking up all over, and squinchy eyes, just like his mama's and older brother's.

Jenna is very weak: she lost a lot of blood during the delivery of her child. She was doing fine, but then she started hemhorraging, and she was immediately prepped, rushed into surgery, where they were (by a miracle) able to staunch the bleeding. She was bleeding from everywhere: her eyes, her mouth, her nose, between her legs, her ears--it was beyond terrifying. I thought for a minute they were going to lose her.

Jenna is now safely in the Intensive Care ward, where she is being given blood transfusions to replace the blood she lost during the birth; she is hooked up to monitors and tubes, wired for sound. They have her knocked out so she can rest; she went through a horrible ordeal.

Jenna is not out of the woods yet, but each hour that passes, it means more liklihood that she will pull through this crisis.

Meanwhile, little Kenai is in the NICU, fighting for HIS little life.

Between running to and from the NICU and the regular Intensive Care unit, I am exhausted; it's no wonder I am so tired!

I have been calling friends and my family, to keep them abreast of the situation at hand. It's a rather scary, uncertain time in our lives right now, but with God's good graces (and the prayers of many caring people), Jenna (and son) just might pull through.

We can only hope.

Will keep you informed regarding Jenna (and Kenai's) situations; stay tuned! In the  meantime, keep those prayers coming!

~Michael. :(

A sweet blessing of a baby!! Often we put our attention on the new Moms and babies and forget about the new Dads and what they may be going through. This write exposes us to just how hard it is for them, especially when their loved ones are still in danger. A superb write!

Congrats! that picture as been taken by the angel of the little one, isn't? because Jenna will go out of the woods to see this little one grow, that guardian angel will see to it.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
