    My new son / Seadoo photo of the week

    My son Rhys was born on January 22nd, almost 3 months before his due date of April 9th. My wife had developed severe preeclampsia with HELLP syndrome, which is fatal for 1 in 4 women if not dealt with immediately. The only way to save my wife and son was an immediate emergency C-section. My son was 2 pounds, 5.8 ounces at birth, but got as low as 1 pound, 7 ounces before he stabilized and began to put on weight. His left lung collapsed 2 times in the first week and he had to have a chest tube to drain the fluid off his lungs. He spent 8 weeks in the NICU, only to spend an additional week in Vanderbilt the day after he came home because he stopped breathing 5 times within the first 24 hours at home. He has been home a month now and Im happy to say he is doing great! He had a developmental appointment yesterday morning and scored in the normal range for all tests for his age. He also passed all of his scans and they do not anticipate any long term issues.

    I have been taking him everywhere with me and the last time I went to the Sea-Doo dealership I took a picture of him with me for the "I Brake For..." Sweepstakes by Sea-Doo. I submitted the picture and we were chosen as one of four pictures in this weeks "Sea-Doo Picture of the Week" photo contest. Those who have facebook can vote for our picture at and those without can go to Our picture is the one on the far left. I have added some pictures of him below, including the photo we submitted for the contest.
