Raelyn Elizabeth Gordon

My neice and nephew Tom and Heather Gordon had a beautiful baby girl this morning at 9:46am. Raelyn Elizabeth Gordon 6lbs 14oz. Heather is physically doing ok after the c-section. They are on an emotional roller coaster as she was born with severe conditions. So far all they know she has a severe heart defect as well as physical abnormalities. She is in the NIC unit and at the moment is stable. UPDATE:5/21/2017 Here is the update on Raelyn from Tom and Heather today:
1. Her kidneys are functioning well.
2. She has been taken off the warming blanket as she can now maintain body temperature.
3. Tomorrow she will be having a sonogram of her heart to see how it is functioning. This is a preliminary test before they do a heart catheterization to open the mitral valve.
4. Any other decisions about her heart and possible surgeries will not be decided until after the cathererizatiob.
5. All procedures, unless an emergency situation, will be done at Strong Memorial hospital in Rochester.
6. Preliminary genetic testing results will be back tomorrow.
