Well, I did it. And, it wasn't a dream. Little Lorelai Elizabeth came into this world on May 1st at 10:48 a.m., weighing 7lbs, 11.6 oz., and was 20.5 inches long. She is so incredibly beautiful.
So, are you looking at the date and thinking to yourself, "She waited an entire MONTH to update us?" Well the answer is YES. Get over it. If you had any idea what I'd just been through, you'd cut me some slack. To review all the events would make up a tome, and I literally don't have the time or energy to do it. So, here it is in a nutshell....
The hospital experience was an absolute nightmare.
- I had a C-Section with no anesthesia. Yes. Go back and read that again, people. The anesthesia didn't work and I felt every thing. She was even lodged inside me and they couldn't get her out. Had to use suction. Anyone seen Texas Chain Saw Massacre? Exactly.
- Lorelai became very ill and ended up in the NICU. We didn't know if she'd make it. We were beside ourselves with worry. But, God was good and she got better. She came home 1 week after she was born.
- While in the hospital, I ended up with a blood clot in my leg. Yup.
- There are so many details of sadness, stress and no sleep, that I can't go into here. But, it was brutal.
