Kingston is here!

It has been a week now since Josh and I brought home our beautiful baby boy Kingston. We headed to the hospital on Sun. Nov. 9 to be induced. After a long day of contractions and no progression the Doc. decided to stop the pitocin Mon. (Nov. 10) night.  That gave me a chance to eat and get some rest and start pitocin again the next morning. (Tue. Nov. 11) The contractions were coming hard  and strong but still I was not progressing. The Doc. decided I should have a c section and it was set to happen at 11:30am. At 11:05am my water broke so the c section was called off and I cont. to labor until 5:00pm. By that time I had only dilated to 2 cm and Doc. said my water broke to long ago so I would need to have a c section. Kingston Josiah Moss was born at 5:49pm 7lbs. 7oz. 20in.!!!!  It was a rough go but all went well. 

That night as we had Kingston in our room with us he began to vomit green bile.  The nurse told us that green was the only color they don't like to see, so Kingston was taken to get checked out. About a half hour later a nurse came in to let us know he was getting xrays done and that he would go to the NICU for the rest of the week. Josh and I were broken. We felt helpless and unsure of what was to come. We had only got to have our son for 7 hours. The week progressed and Kingston had multiple tests done which all came back clear! His stomach was also pumped to get all the bile out.  They continued antibiotics and monitored him until Sat. Nov. 15 when I was released and the Doc. released Kingston as well. Kingston had lost a lot of weight and so we had to make sure he was eating enough to get his weight back up, which it has!!!  

All this to say that Kingston is doing great and gaining more weight everyday and I am healing well from the c section! We are home now and Josh is taking such good care of me and Kingston. He is so in love with his son and it is so amazing to watch.  Josh and I just want to thank EVERYONE who has been praying for us and thinking about us through the trying week we had. Josh and I felt God so close and cannot say enough about the power of prayer. It is real and we serve a real God who comforts and heals in amazing ways. We give God ALL the glory and praise him for the amazing gift that he gave us in raising one of His children! Thank you Lord, may I cont. to have faith in you and feel your presence as I did this last week. God is good. Thank you everyone again!  Josh, Brianna, and Kingston Moss!
