After daddy got to see Jayden, they moved him into the NICU to run his lines. They told us this should take about 45 minutes, but it ended up taking 6 hours!! I did not see my son until he was close to 8 hours old, and this is how I saw him for the first time...
Shortly after I was able to go in and see him, Grandma Linda, Great-grandma Gaukel, Grandpa Mike, Page and Aaron came to visit us. Since only one extra person could go in and see Jayden at a time, only Grandma and Great-grandma saw him. We stayed in the NICU for most of the rest of the day, and tried napping any time we weren't.
November 30, 2011 - 1 day old: I woke up extra early to go see Jayden in the NICU and was pleasently surprised to see my baby extubated, wide awake and happy!
I must say though, the best part of that day was getting to hold our sweet baby boy for the first time!!!!!! It was tricky and took a while to get all his lines untangled, but it was so worth it!
