Welcome to Truman's blog page
I'm setting this up for Kara and Ben—Amy (Kara's Sister)
Truman Borden was born Tuesday, August, 8, 2006 at 4:38 a.m. (I think that time is right.) at 23 weeks. He was due Dec. 5. He weighed 1 lb. 4 oz. For a micro-preemie, he's doing great so far. He's on a ventilator, of course, and has a catheter in his belly-button giving him food and medications, but that's about it. He doesn't have any major complications at this point other than being born almost 4 months too early. He just came off of his blood pressure medication because he's regulating well on his own. He can't be handled much at this point, but Kara and Ben are getting to spend a lot of time with him. He will have a series of tests and scans on Monday, Aug. 14, which will give a better picture of his health, but so far, so good.
Kara is okay, all things considered. She has no medical complications. She's just very tired. She's being discharged today and going home this evening some time where she hopes to get some rest.
More news and pictures will come later. Kara and Ben aren't checking their e-mail right now. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions. (There's a link on my name above.) I'll try to get back with you if I know the answer.
