My sister had her second baby girl, Elise Abby Girard, born July 19. The middle name “Abby” is our sister Abby Moseley. Official announcement and pictures are as follows:”Hello everyone and thanks for your thoughts and prayers – we appreciate them all! For those of you who didn’t get the first email we would like to announce the birth of our gorgeous daughter ELISE ABBY GIRARD who was born Thursday night at 11:35 p.m. and was 6lbs 15 oz and 20.5 in. She is currently still in the ICU but the GREAT news is they took her OFF the respirator and the tube is out of her throat! Thank the Lord! She is completely breathing on her own in the incubator and they only add a small amount of oxygen inside to help her along. She still has a little bit of the spasms in her lungs though and you can see with the naked eye her breathing is not completely corrected and her lungs are not completely opened yet. She is basically on 24 hour observation then if she keeps improving she will be moved to a lower level of the ICU where I will be able to finally hold her and nurse her 3 times per day. They say somewhere between 5-7 days she should be able to come home but we hope much sooner. We love and bless all of you- thank you! Nicolas, Leia, Eva and Elise”
