Joshua is out...

C-Section went well, and Joshua was born at 8:08 pm. His weight was 6lb 6oz and 20 inches long. Joshua responded very well to the ventilator. He didn't go on ECMO or put on any sedatives. The picture shows Joshua crying while being put on the ventilator. I went to visit him about 2:00 am and he was doing better then earlier. The nurses and doctors said that it's looking good compared to what they were expecting. Doctor told me it is better if he does not receive any visitors because any voices he hears or touching stimulates Joshua and increase his heart rate. They also stated that it can change to the worst, CDH babies are hard to predict. He still has a long road ahead, but so far doing great.
