Landon Michael Mink

Landon Michael Mink was born at 1:27 AM on Aug. 15, 2010 at the Timpanogas Hospital in Orem, Utah. Landon weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz., measured 20 inches in length, and was born with a perfect head of light brown hair.

JesseAnn gave birth less than 90 minutes after arriving at the hospital just after midnight and gave birth to Landon naturally (with no pain killers). Her nurse and midwife were both fantastic and Dad did OK too ;).

Landon's nurse noticed that he was having a difficult time keeping his temperature up and that he seemed to be breathing heavily and Monday morning Landon was admitted to the Special Care Unit for pneumonia.

This news was semi-tragic for Jesse and I, as we were told that he would have to stay in the hospital for at least 5-7 days after Jesse was discharged. However, Landon has really progressed well and the Doctor feels confident that we can expect to take him home this coming Monday morning!

Thanks to all for your thoughts, prayers, gifts, and love. Here are a few pictures of Landon and his family from the last few days.

Thanks everyone for all your love and support. Landon had to stay a little extra at the hospital- but should be coming home on Wednesday the 25th. He will be coming home with oxygen to help out his little lungs. We will hopefully post some more pictures soon!
