I have been following Jess’s blog, Here Comes The Sun, since last April when she first found out she was pregnant. In July she found out her son has gastroschisis. He will need surgery and will be in the NICU for awhile.
On top of that, her husband, Aaron, who is in the military, left for South Korea soon after. They had both been planning to move there but since she was high risk, she decided it was best to stay with her family in the States.
Her husband arrived home from South Korea on December 14 and is on leave for the next 2 months so he can be with his family. Jess was going to be induced on December 16th but Elliot has perfect timing and her water broke on Wednesday the 15th.
Elliot Reid arrived on Thursday, December 16th at 10:08 am weighing 6 pounds 3 ounces. He is already loved by many and although these coming months will be difficult, he’s proven that he’s a fighter. I can also tell by the pictures I’ve seen that he is such a sweetie.
