Camden Paige

Our newest little Frossard, Camden Paige, arrived on 12/12 at 1:09pm. It was an easy induction, and she was born quickly. Too quickly, actually, because she aspirated amniotic fluid and developed pneumonia. It sent her into respiratory distress, and she had to be admitted to the NICU, where she remains. Which is why I haven't felt much like updating since she was born.

At this point, she is off of her antibiotics and oxygen, and is pretty much like any other normal newborn, except she doesn't eat very well. So in the NICU she has to remain until she eats an appropriate amount and gains weight. This is so heartbreaking, especially so close to Christmas. We don't think she'll be able to come home before Christmas, and it's really putting me at the end of my rope. We've had so much great support from family and friends, helping watch the boys so we can spend time at the hospital, bringing meals, and just checking in on us. But the fact is I just want my sweet baby girl home so we can be a family on Christmas.

We are grateful that this is something she will recover from and that she should go on to be a healthy child. I just can't help but be sad and miss her, too.
