Happy Birthday Patrick & Savannah!!!!

What a glorious day today was! April and I will go into details later bur for now I am proud and honored to announce the birth of Patrick and Savannah early this afternoon.

Patrick Christian Emrich was born at 12:34 PM and weighed in at 1 lb and 7 ounces and measured 12.5 inches long.

Savannah Grace Emrich was born at 12:35 PM and weighed in at 2 lb and 11 ounces and measured 15 inches long.

Patrick and Savannah are both in the NICU resting peacefully and are breathing on their own which is awesome. They do have IV'S hooked up to them through their stomach so they can be fed and have blood drawn when necessary.

April is feeling OK considering all that she has been through over the past 10 weeks. She is looking forward to going outside tomorrow and getting some fresh air.

The next 5-7 days are crucial for the long term health of Patrick and Savannah and we are expecting them to stay in the NICU for a number of weeks if not longer. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

THANK YOU to everyone for all of your unwavering support!!!!
