Thank you everyone. :) Well wishes are always appreciated and yes, we truly have been blessed.

Kateri Cecilia was 8 lbs 1 oz, 19.5 in. Mom is doing well but Kateri tested Coombs positive so she'll be on a Billy Blanket for a few days.
All the other kids were plenty happy to see her at the hospital on Wed and now that we have her home today.

Praise God,
and take care all.

Congrats on the new addition. Having had 4 of our own, I am unclear of Coombs or what a Billy Blanket is. Is this jaundice?

Thanks again everyone.  Jules, yes Coombs is a cause for jaundice. It's when the mother and the baby have incompatible blood and the mother's blood crosses over into the baby during delivery. The mothers blood's antibodies then break down the baby's red blood cells filling the blood with "billirubin". A cure for this is sunlight or a photo therapy lighted blanket as the light helps the baby's liver clean the blood. Kateri's billirubin levels are not dangerous, only high enough to need treatment.

See you on the trail,
soon I hope.

Joe,
Thanks for the update.  I hear you found time to instruct at the Racine Appleseed this weekend, and bring a few shooters along to boot, as usual. :--- 

Can't wait to meet Kateri.
