Fitzgerald Carl Davis - April 30, 2018

Monday morning Marilyn got the call we were all waiting for. Tara was headed to the hospital. After Marilyn loaded her car, she picked me up and off we went. About an hour into the trip, Chad let us know that it would be an all day event, so the stress level went down a little. We would get there before the baby was born. Tara's family, Marilyn, and I all waited patiently in the waiting room. Little did we know that would be our home for the next four days. 

Fitz was born about 5:40 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces, and all seemed well. Marilyn and I went to Chad and Tara's to stay the night. The next morning we received a text at 6:30 a.m. Fitz had some issues and had been moved to the NICU at midnight. He would be facing surgery and many tests. 

In Marilyn's words...."What we know for sure is that there is a cyst on his ear, they fold over, and his anus is not developed nor can he be circumcised at this time. Over the next several days he was tested for hearing, eyes, bones in his arms and legs, and his heart. We knew on Wednesday that we were not going to get to see him anytime soon, so we drove home Wednesday night. Fitz finally passed all his tests, the parents passed the dilation test, and so he got released on Saturday night. He will be facing several surgeries in the coming months. Even though Fitz had an emotional start, God blessed us and prayers were being answered daily/hourly. He is a beautiful little boy that has many of his father's characteristics -  his looks, his buppy, and he already moves a lot. Maybe Chad will see why we called him 'the worm' by the time he was two weeks old."

Chad, Tara, and Fitz.....Aunt Di loves you!
