A big baby boy is finally home after spending more than a week in the hospital.
Baby Raymond was born to mom Jenna Reyes at Mercy Medical Center on April 30.
Reyes told KFSN she opted to have a C-section, since she was expecting a 10-11 pound baby. But when Raymond arrived, he was bigger than anyone expected.
“I worked in labor deliver for about seven years and the largest baby I’ve ever seen, so 13 pounds is a big baby, I’ve never seen one that big,” nurse Jessica Newton said.
Jenna told KFSN Raymond was taken by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to be treated for jaundice and low calcium and sodium levels.
After spending a week in the NICU, Raymond is finally home and thriving.
His big sister has promised to help take care of her new brother but insists, “I’m still the baby girl of the house.”
