We bring you a special report.....

This past Wednesday afternoon was Sandra's weekly ultrasound appointment with the perinatologist (fetal medicine doctor). The ultrasound seemed routine when the sonographer performed it. When the doctor came in...

"Well, it looks like that you came just in time."


You see, Sandra has had to watch her blood pressure over the past few months. There is a condition called pregnancy induced hypertension, otherwise known as preeclampsia. If left untreated, it could be catastrophic for both mother and baby. Some of her blood values were mildly elevated, and since the baby was considered term on Wednesday, and he is breech to boot, the doctor said it was time for him to come out via c-section.

Needless to say, we were a little shocked. We scheduled a c-section for June 11.

To make a long story short, Alexander Aurelio Almazan was born this past Wednesday evening.

We are overcome with great joy and excitement. Needless to say, the grandparents were just as happy and excited.

I'll let Sandra blog about the whole thing. However, coming from a new father, it dosen't get any better than this.
