Meet Baby Kalel Nathan! His name means “Vessel of God” “Given by God” respectively. The birth was a wonderful memorable experience. My husband, Charlie, was able to catch Kalel and hand him to me. Unfortunately hours after we got home, Kalel started having difficulty breathing. We rushed to the ER where they put him on oxygen and antibiotics. We were then transferred to the best Children’s hospital in Los Angeles. We spent more than a week in the NICCU where the doctors tried to find the cause of the problem however they were never able to conclusively say what caused Kalel’s breathing trouble. After being on oxygen Kalel’s breathing improved and he has shown no further signs of trouble. We are now grateful to be home safe and healthy. My parents stayed with us two weeks to meet Kalel; they were a great help.
