Emerson "Emmy" Joy Ferraro (baby E) was born fourth. She was the biggest of the girls and she was situated on the top left inside Meryl. When she first came out, she struggled the most to start the breathing process. But, she had the most experienced team of doctors and specialists working with her to get her going. She was the last baby out of recovery and the first baby I got to hold for a quick video op. She is a sweetheart, but she was a little fiesty when I changed her diaper last night. I got to hold her again last night for about 45 minutes. She needed CPAP assistance to breath for about 24 hours. But, she is off the CPAP and doing great now. She has already started small feedings (2-5 ml per feed - about 1/2 to 1 tsp per feeding).
Stats: Emerson was born at 11:03am, weighing 3 lbs, 13 oz and measuring 16 1/4 inches.
Great job Emmy!!
