Hi Everyone,

Nicholas Ryan MartiniWeighing in at 1 pound, 9 ounces, measuring 13 1/2 inches long and with a full head of hair - Nicholas Ryan Martini! Nicholas was born via C-section today at 4:46 PM (PST). I was there with Andrea in the operating room when he was born, which made things a little easier on both of us.

Nicholas was delivered 14 weeks early because today's ultrasound showed that he was in severe distress. He is on a ventilator and doing fine so far, but the first 24 hours are usually a honeymoon period. The next few weeks will be a real roller coaster, but as you all know we're well acquainted with roller coasters!

First TouchAndrea is feeling pretty good, considering what she went through today. The C-section went really well and they're managing her pain with morphine. She'll probably feel the effects of the C-section in a couple of days, but for now the drugs are working.

Alex is also doing well. She spent the day and night at our neighbor's (Dan & Nancy Flynn) house, so she hasn't seen Nicholas yet. I plan to take her over tomorrow morning to see him and then we'll head up to Children's Hospital for a bath, dressing change and possible platelet transfusion.

He's Got My Nose!Well I need to be up in a few hours, so I better wrap this up. Thanks again for four years of love, prayers and support. Take care.

-- Todd

P.S. I'll post another update with more photos tomorrow night or Sunday at the latest.
