Baby is off the respirator. All vital signs are good. Drugged with phenol barbital (an anti-convulsant), so not able to tell if dulled reactions are still due to birth trauma, drugs, or other problems. CAT scan scheduled on Monday.
Shalom Zachor (“party” in honor of new baby) held in the Seltzer Residence for the new baby. Prayers and good wishes are offered.
50 women attend a psalm/tehillim session in Ramat Beit Shemesh to pray for the baby.
Baby is born. Weighs 4.2kg/9.25 lbs. Due to a traumatic birth (3.5 hours of pushing) the baby is not breathing on its own and is immediately brought to the ICU (intensive care unit) and put on a respirator.
