Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting!

We welcomed Amos Frederick Vosburg into the world on December 17th at 11:04am!

9lb 5oz, 21 inches long, and feet that barely fit the spaces for footprints.

Labor was fast and furious, we barely made it to the hospital where I immediately started pushing. After my water broke, Amos’s heart beat dropped significantly, and he was put on an internal monitor. His heart rate didn’t recover, and he started showing additional signs of distress.

We are so thankful that the team decided to do an emergency c-section. He was very tangled up in his cord and his cord blood showed that he had been deprived of Oxygen. To get ahead of potential swelling, he was transported to Seattle Children’s Hospital for a hypothermia protocol.

So far he’s been a spirited baby well known at both hospitals for getting out of any tubes or medical sensors they attempt to attach him to; most notably, he slowly snaked out an almost 30 cm long breathing tube.

My recovery is slow but going well. I lost a lot of blood and have had greater swelling and pain than with Willa. We’re working on balancing my recovery and being with Amos. We’re so grateful for all the offers of help and support us and we’re hoping this space provides some of those answers.
