Welcome Colin Jamie Sharabura!January 10, 2012 8:28 pm Colin
We could not be more excited to announce the arrival of the newest Sharabura. Welcome to the world little Colin!!
The day started out innocently enough. We had a doctor’s appointment to check on my blood pressure which had started to get a bit elevated. Scott decided to come with me to get the results and watch the kids. Unfortunately, my blood pressure was still a bit high so they sent us to the hospital to redo some blood work and check on the baby. I started on that while Scott brought the kids to a friend of mine’s house for a little while.
By the time Scott got to the hospital, we were just about done the testing. Unfortunately, my blood pressure was still a bit high and combined with some elevated liver levels, the doctor recommended that we induce the baby. We had already prepared ourselves for the possibility so, though it wasn’t our ideal situation, we knew it was the right thing to do.
Scott left to go home and get some supplies for the kids and our hospital bag and camera. Labour with both kids has gone on for a very long time so we felt we should have sufficient time for him to get there and get back. Unfortunately, we miscalculated there just a little. Scott was gone less than 2 hours but the baby decided he just couldn’t wait. Fortunately, Scott got back right after he was born and was able to hold him while he waited to be evaluated by the doctor.
Without further ado, meet our Colin.

Everyone is doing well and we’re so happy he arrived and is already doing so well.
