Life

Tomorrow at about this time I will have a baby. I probably won't get to hold her for another hour from this time but she will be born!! Also I will have the hubby update the blog when he comes home tomorrow night so be watching for info on her. I will do the pictures when I come home from the hospital. Ok with that out of the way...last night we did our first night of Children's Choir (GG only) and Awana clubs at our church, this year. It was a very nice evening. It was almost like a date for J and I to be able to sit and relax while all of our kids were being taken care of by church friends. I think that I am really going to like Wednesday nights! Oh yeah and GlamorGirl doesn't have much homework on Wednesday because it is church night :) Speaking of her she had her first test Wednesday at school and she came home with a 100% it was a spelling test with 23 words. I hope this is how the rest of the year goes...

Hi there girl. Hope you read this before tomorrow. Now, about the C-section. It's all so simple and amazingly nice. Hopefully they will explain it step by step like they did for me. They take you back to the room via your bed. Switch you to the operating bed. They will get you all warm with blankets because it's stinking cold in there. Then they have you turn on your side, knees up to your chest as far as they'll go with the belly and all. Arch your back like a mad kitty cat. Then they start the epidural, it feels cold at first and then nothingness takes over. They will start prodding at you to see how fast it's working. It's a freaky feeling as you can't really move at all from nipples down. They'll put a sheet up between your chest and the rest of you. They put your arms out in sort of a "on the cross" sort of way. They they talk you through what the doctor is doing and you don't feel a thing but a little pressure here and there...but not bad pressure. You can sure tell when they get the little bugger out of you though, it's just a feeling of relief for some reason. Then they get ya all sewed and stapled up and the real fun begins. Coming back down off the morphine is yucky! And if you start to get itchy at all, tell them and they give you a shot to keep that to a minimum. I think the morphine is the worst part of it. Before you know it, you are a bit sore...but then you see that little face and you suddenly feel like nothing else matters.

You will do awesome and I'll pray for you and your little one!! Best wishes for a speedy recovery too!!!!
