[ Drew Shellen on Day 3 of life ]
The first of many Drew pictures to come over the next few days. Thanks for all the kind email, prayers and comments. His lungs are working great and we were able to bring him home Saturday afternoon. We are still exhausted so Allie's mom came to stay with us to help out for a few days. I'll post more soon, and of course Drew will have a blog. It's in the works.

It's been a long trip, as we were admitted to the hospital on Wednesday morning at 1:45 AM. Almost 27 hours later, Drew breathed his first gulp of air. Allison was amazing. She's the strongest person I know. Allie, the baby and I are doing fine (aside from both being absolutely beat). Unfortunately, Drew needs to spend a little time in intensive care to get rid of some of the fluid in his lungs. Maybe a few days. I've seen him a few times since birth and he seems A-Ok and is responsive to my touch and talking to him. Prayers and good thoughts are kindly appreciated though. Right now I'm vacillating between floating on air that I have a SON and thinking about how good a few hours sleep would feel. Small price to pay for an amazing little miracle.
Thank you to all the well wishers and especially to our family and friends who gave up a night of sleep to be with us. If you want to say howdy to Drew, you know the drill: drew AT shellen dot com. More Drew soon...

Please, for the love of all that is good, if you are even thinking about downloading the recently released Netscape Communicator 4.79, let me know so i can come over to your house and shake some sense in to you. Unless you are a baby. Never shake a baby.

According to Odle, Swayzee has "a bank, a gas station, a convenience store and a supermarket." It is famous for more than producing the Hoosiers' starting forward, though. Swayzee High was once involved in a nine-overtime game, which the town claims is a world record.When Dad took us to visit Swayzee in 1987 I didn't see any supermarket. I wonder if they ever added that second stop light they were talking about?
