Wellllll time flew a little faster than we all thought would.....

I've had a crazy weekend with the cruise and all (Good times no complaints), I wake up monday morning, get up say goodbye to Shannon, and go to work.... I am there like 40 minutes when my phone goes off and it's Shannon calling me. I come home, we go to the hospital. Keep in mind she isn't due till July 2nd/9th..They are checking her out and stuff.... next words I hear come out of the nurse's mouth was the most surreal thing I've ever heard in my life... "Well it looks like you're not leaving here today without having a baby"!!!! I think I felt my balls sink up to my throat... Everything happened so fast, as she getting this and that and they are handing me a bag full of scrubs to change into...

So long story short Monday June 2nd at 3:02pm Shannon and I have the most cutest little man come into our life at 5lbs-12oz, 19.25 inches long and 5 weeks early, everybody is thinking because of his stomach issue he was a little cramped up inside, so he wanted to come out so....well he did. He is the cutest little fucker I tell you all. He's got a FULL head of hair (in a mohawk actually now lol), but no beard unfortunately haha. He looks JUST like me whan I was born (I remember).

So he is still in the hospital being 5 weeks early premature, everything is seeming to check out ok as for him doing "big boy" things, being able to breathe while he eats and stuff like that, the ONLY VERY small concern last night and today, was he wasnt keeping food down too well, could be 2 things, the fact that he's premature they say it's common, or like my stepson who was early as well, that he just doesnt like what they are giving him. Also it seems to happen when he wakes up and opens his eyes, maybe he is "startling" himself and throwing up..

I was there when he opened his eyes for the first time, and all bullshit aside it's bringing a tear to my eyes again as I'm typing. The most craziest feeling I've EVER felt, the same as the first couple seconds he was in the room and we heard him yellingand crying, cause he came out causing a scene lol All the nurses and doctors were glad to say "He's got a set of lungs on him", and that was the first time I heard him. CRAZY INSANE!! I'm so fucked up right now with these things they call feeling and emotions. We both have yet to hold him, which is understandable with his condition, but it IS for the better at this point, I cant wait for that, he does take hold of my finger pretty good, and HATES his feet to be touched lol I have so much else I wanted to type right now, but it'll come to me

So let me introduce the youngest CAMM member as of right now..... Gage Alexander Howen

thanks everybody, i just talked to shannon, and according to the doctors, the main reason he cant keep the food down is because we really cant burp him normaly cause of his belly. but all in all hes a trooper, a tough little guy. today i believe he goes fo an echo, and a scan of his liver i think. normal tests. his hole in the heart was said to not be there, but they are just double checking now that he is out

Congrats Adam. Birth weight is good for five weeks early. My twins were six weeks early and both popped out at around 5 pounds each. It's still incredible though how small they are when you hold them. They give you any estimate on when he may be able to come home yet?

As for when he will be coming home, we know it's not going to be anytime soon. It could be anywhere from 2 weeks to "weeks". I mean it REALLY sucks, but right now with his condition and vulnerability of his weakened imune system with what's exposed, it's better for him to be there currently with doctors there on hand.
 
I needed to take a break today after work, and come home and stay home, me and Ethan have had LATE nights with all the driving cause the hospital is so far from our house, but finally got some bills paid, laundry, and dishes done.

We do though REALLY appreciate everybody's words and wishes, it's nice to know how big of a family we have

Congrats Adam! I know exactly what your going through. My Daughter Sarah was 6 weeks early. She was in the Prenatal High Intensive Care Unit for several weeks. I went to see her every single day that she was there until she came home. I was like a Zombie.
