On December 19th Brianna had some pregnancy related blood pressure complications that resulted in an early Christmas present. Lincoln Lovell McTee Brown arrived 9 weeks early at Swedish Hospital at 2lbs 11.3 oz. He will be in the Swedish Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for the next 9 weeks or so, growing and developing under the loving care of the skilled NICU nursing team. While the biggest initial concern was breathing with under developed lungs, Lincoln has actually already graduated to breathing on his own with a little assistance.
Brianna's blood pressure took several days to control, but has finally leveled out and she has been able to spend some time with her precious gift. Aaron has been multitasking as Dad, Mom, and husband, going back and forth between spending lots of time with Lincoln up in the NICU and assisting Brianna in her recovery. Due to the complications Brianna had prior to Lincoln's birth, she will not be able to drive for several months, and will need rides to the hospital twice daily to visit Lincoln.
