Announcing the birth of Abigail Claira Leschorn


Not long ago I posted that Erica was in the hospital, on December 10th they decided to go ahead and deliver the baby. So at 5:20pm on Monday Abigail Claira Leschorn was born. She is a 32 week baby, so we expect her to be in the NICU for a couple of weeks, she was born at 4lbs 3oz, 17 1/2 inches long.
Initially she was on a vent, but very soon graduated to a CPAP then standard room air. The medicine that they were giving Erica to help stop her contractions was at pretty high levels in the Abbie, this is why she needed assistance breathing. They are now feeding her by bottle and tube, increasing the feedings every 6 hours.



Look at that hair! She has more hair on her head then any other Leschorn did at birth!
