KXAN reported Ali James had to remain in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for a week because of rapid breathing, low platelet counts and low blood sugar, but he and his mother are now doing well. KTVT reported the newborn has since been home with family and a clean bill of health.
Jennifer Medlock told KTVT her family was already expecting a bigger-than-average baby, because Ali’s big sister, Annabelle, was 9 pounds, 10 ounces at birth.
“It doesn’t matter how big he is.” the new mom of two said. “I’m so blessed.”
