Carson has arrived

Today at 4:35pm Kristen gave birth via c-section. Unfortunately, Carson was not breathing and had a very weak heart rate at birth. They were just about to poke a hole in his throat when they finally got a small airtube passed into him.

His heart rate is now fine, and he is breathing with the tube. But we are not sure what lies ahead for him. Apparently he does NOT have AE/TEF but rather something is wrong with his larynx (voicebox). I am about to consult with a surgeon now and we expect that Carson will be in surgery within 30 minutes.
