Anja Elizabeth Davis

On September 30 at 7:30 AM history was made with the birth of Anja Elizabeth Davis.  A new generation of Davises was started. Anja's due date was October 15. However, Lisa was low on amniotic fluid and the baby was breach, so her arrival was planned for a C-section on Monday, September 29. The doctor had an emergency surgery so the arrival was delayed one day.

These pictures were shot one week earlier of the happy couple when they found out the baby was one week away.

 September 30, 2014 at 7:30 AM this precious little girl came into the world.

Greg and Lisa had to be at the hospital at 5:00 AM. I drove to the hospital in the dark by myself. I was there by 6:15 AM. Greg and Lisa were great before the c-section. Justin came and set with me at the hospital. Diana had to work and could not be here until after lunch.

Some notable items of this event to be remembered:
Anja weighed 6 lbs. 3 oz. & 19 inches long.
When the doctor cut Lisa open and started lifting Anja out, she was already crying in the stomach. The doctor said this is really unusual. Within the first hour, it was decided that Anja would have to go to the NICU unit because she had fluid in her lungs and was breathing rather shallow. She also had to be given an IV and a feeding tube.
Anja stayed in the NICU from Tuesday to Saturday. On Saturday she got to go to the neonatal floor where Lisa and Greg joined her. She did so well there that she was released to go home on Sunday.
Other items to be noted:
Chad and Tara are living and working in Singapore.
Jenna is dealing with the first American case of Ebola at her hospital.
Rickie is in Orlando, Fl at the sprinkler show.
