Rachel and Kenny Reuter
Welcome to the Reuter Family webpage. Here you can learn all about the lives of Rachel and Kenny. Currently they are expecting their first child. It is a boy!!! We are going to name him Elijah William Reuter. We are very excited!
December 31, 2006 - Rachel was admitted to Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, KY. She has been ordered to be on complete bed rest due to pre-eclampsia.
January 5, 2006 - Rachel was transferred from Lourdes to St. Mary's Hospital in St. Louis, MO via ambulance. She is doing well, just a little anxious.
January 15, 2006 - Elijah William Reuter was born at 5:23 PM at St. Mary's Hospital in St. Louis, MO. He weighed a whopping 2 pounds 7 ounces and was 15 1/4 inches long.
January 16, 2006 - Due to complications Eli has been transferred to a different hospital. He is now at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Eli is doing well. He has already gained 5 ounces (likes to eat like his dad). Rachel is recovering as well. She is still at St. Mary's, but is hopeful to be discharged any day.
January 20, 2006 - Rachel has been discharged from St. Mary's Hospital. She was excited to see what trees looked like again. We are now staying at a Ronald McDonald House in St. Louis. It is approximately 5 minutes from the hospital. It is absolutely beautiful. Everyone has been very nice.
January 23, 2006 - Elijah is one week old today. He is doing well. He is off the C-Pap and breathing on his own with a little oxygen.
