Phoenix Coats Checketts

Phoenix was born August 3rd at 1:55 p.m. 8 lbs. 8 oz. 20 inches long. He's so adorable. I wish I had a better picture. He has tons of dark hair and dark eyes. Within hours of his birth they transferred him to the NICU. It was a nightmare of crying and worrying. The doctor diagnosed him with hereditary spherocytosis. Once we learned more about the disease we were reassured that he will have a normal, healthy life. He may have blood transfusions or lose his spleen, but as you can imagine sitting in the NICU for six days I realized that things could be a lot worse. Thanks for all your prayers and concern. I'm thrilled to be at home with my baby and enjoying all my boys. Four boys! How can one mom be so blessed?
