Rowan Margaret!

Great News!
Rowan Margaret was born at 8am this morning.
She is a whopping 9lbs 4oz and only 19" long.
She's seems really healthy and very active.
Emily is doing well, in her recovery room, and is currently enjoying a sumptuous clear fluid lunch (mmmm, broth and jello!)

Everything with the delivery went just about as smoothly as we could have hoped. They were able to drain the cyst in her mouth easily, removing some of the excess tissue right then, and were able to establish an airway without needing to perform a tracheotomy. She's in the NICU now, and they're planning on removing the breathing tube this afternoon-- she never needed additional oxygen or breathing support, just the tube to make sure she had a clear airway. Once the tube is out we'll know more, but it's possible she might not need any additional surgeries... we'll just have to wait and see. As far as anyone can tell, the cyst appears to be an isolated problem as we'd hoped, and doesn't seem to have caused problems for any other part of her tongue/mouth/face.

We'll try to post some photos as soon as we can and post updates frequently.
Thanks for everyone's good wishes and support.

Hooray! That is such great news. Congratulations!
