The morning glory that blooms for an hour
Differs not at heart
From the giant pine that lives for a thousand years.

At 10:46pm, November 1st 2005, Jericho was born by emergency c-section for breech presentation.
He was three pounds, seven ounces - born at 34 weeks.
He had black eyes, and over an inch of long black hair. He looked very much like Tempest did when she was first born.
Jericho had [bilateral renal agenesis], a rare and fatal abnormality that causes absence of the kidneys. He did not cry, and stayed with us for less than an hour.
He took his last breath in Curtis' arms after eleven o'clock.
