Baby Walt Tag

It's been a long times since I did a Baby Walt update post. Over a year, in fact. For a few reasons. One -- that he's doing so well. And two, it's hard. Hard to venture back into two years ago when my little man made a dramatic arrival, turned blue, and was whisked away in a helicopter to another hospital where he wasn't expected to make it through the night.

Last Thanksgiving was the worst Thanksgiving I have ever had. My husband and I got up and dressed in the morning and headed to the NICU to spend some precious time with our four-day-old son, Baby Walt and had planned to come back and do our best to enjoy the rest of the day with our daughters and family. Walter was born with a very rare congenital heart defect of which he had an incredibly severe case, one we were not aware of until his birth.

It's been a few months since I've shared an update on Baby Walt, mainly thanks to the world shutting down and life changing suddenly and dramatically, though not necessarily badly. Walt turned 7 months old last week, which is hard to believe and also, truly miraculous.

It's been over two weeks since I last provided an update on Baby Walt, our family's newest addition. Baby Walt was born November 24 via emergency c-section. Shortly after his birth, he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition and life lifted to Houston’s Medical Center where he’s been since.
It's been less than a month, but it feels like a year has passed since Walt was born. Time has slowed to a snail's pace, which is probably why Walt's recovery, when placed in real time, is nothing short of amazing.

The last several days have been the hardest I’ve faced; we’ve faced. Ever. Yet through it all, the Lord has been faithful in ways I never imagined possible. Baby Walt was born November 24 via emergency c-section. Shortly after his birth, he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition and life lifted to Houston's Medical Center where he's been since.

On Sunday morning, November 24, Walter Canon, son of Kemberlee Kaye and her husband Jeff, entered the world at 9 lbs. 8 oz. He joins his two big sisters, who have been anxiously awaiting his arrival. Walt was born with a congenital heart problem, and is being cared for by doctors and nurses at a Houston children's hospital.
