Welcome Baby McKay

McKay Theron Cox was born today at 2:29 p.m. weighing in at 7 pounds 6 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. After an eventful delivery, he was whisked away to the ICU where he was stabilized and then transported to Primary Children's Hospital where he is currently resting. He is such a strong baby and came out kicking at the Doctors who were trying to deliver him.

Tonight Mindi and I were able to visit McKay in the NICU and give him his first bath. He is hooked up to a lot of machines, including a ventilator, but seems to be tolerating his situation. We met with a group of cardiologists today and they confirmed his diagnosis with a few minor changes. We will meet with them tomorrow to discuss surgery options and when they will operate.

Words do not describe what occurred today, so we have attached pictures. We appreciate all of your prayers and support.

Congrats! He looks beautiful. You guys are sure amazing parents. This boy couldn't have gone to a better family. We are going to miss having Preston and Tyler at the babysitting co-op, If you ever need a last minute babysitter, we are just down the street.

Just wanted to say congrats and all of you are in our prayers. He is a gorgeous baby. We hope and pray the next few days go perfectly for you all. Linda is keeping me updated with phone calls and she keeps asking me "Is there anything on their blog?" because she doesn't know how to check it. It's pretty funny. I'll have to tell her there are photos. She'll probably have me come over so I can show her how to find them! We love you guys.
