Kennedy has arrived!
Kennedy arrived at 12:09 am on October 10th 2005. She weighs 3 lbs 11 oz. She is 15.5 inches long. As I write this she is 20 hours 28 minutes old. WOW. I didnt think we would get this time and we did.
The staff at Banner Good Sam Pod C was outstanding. The staff OB was very nice. The delivery started and was complete in 11 hours. Carol was induced with petocin starting about 3, so really 9 hours.
Kennedy came out and we thought we had only seconds. I could barely stand. One moment Carol was pushing and the next she was out. She is beautiful. She looks just like her Big sister. She is perfect and has already given us more than we have given her.
I will write the next post later detailing the last 20 hours. It has been filled with highs and very, very low lows - be prepared.
As I write this I am at home with my wife and second daughter. Carol is on the second couch holding my daughter. Life is hard but very good.

Congratulations..You don't know me, but I came across your blog and have been reading it for sometime. I have been praying for your family and am very happy that you all have gotten time with your precious daughter...What a blessing.
I was not going to send an email, since I didn't want to interfer but I posted your blog on a pregnancy message board and we all are praying for you and your family. A member of the board felt that I should let you and your family know this since she went throught the same thing you are going through. Her daughter lived 5 months.
God bless you and your family. I have been thinking of all of you everyday.
I am a mother of 6 children, one that is just two months old today...
Good luck and enjoy every precious minute you have.

Jason and Carol,
I am so happy you have your second little one with you now, that mom and the delivery went well, and my prayers are with you that you all can share in her precious life, even for as long as we all are given that!
Best of wishes,
