2 days later, but here's our story

Well I have been dying to post on FB, but the hospital blocks us from using it, or any other social network. So I am hoping that some one here will share this link for me and I will post when I get home.

Gracelyn Willow made her debut @ 0821 on 4/26/2011... weighing in @ 7lb 5oz and 19in long. She is healthy and doing great.





We arrived at the hossy @ 0600 and they began prepping me for c/s everything went well and she was delivered and the doc did my tubal ligation before sewing me up. she told me that it was good that I was having the tubal after all cause my uterus "was worn out". I did not feel like I could carry again anyway. I was soooo sick after surgery and lost count of how many times I puked. Tues was rough in that way... we had a room full of people and I could not function at all. The nurses kicked everyone out about 1230 or 1 so I cold rest.

After recovery period we trying nursing, but she has had trouble latching from the beginning and was not getting enough to eat... short version... we are pumping and supplementing w/ formula. she is happy so we are happy... I love that they ave not pushed me to BF and have not made me feel bad or guilty about it not working out as planned.

My MIL has brought ds to see me everyday and I am so glad. I thought that we would get to go home today, but the doctor wants me to stay one more day... I had a meltdown when she told me that this morning, but I am okay now.

Last night was really rough we had horrendous storms here and I felt so helpless cause I wanted to be with my son. We were told to stay in our bathroom until we got the all clear. Our cars are pretty beat up from the golf ball sized hail that came down. the storms just kept coming, one after another. We have not been home, so don't know if there is any damage to our house. MIL said that lightning struck a tree in the neighbors yard and it fell, but missed our house. I was a nervous wreck cause ds and MIL were at our house alone, but my SIL came over and got them in between storms and they road out the rest of the night in the basement @ SIL's house. Today the sun is shining and everyone is assessing the damage. We can't even get thru to the insurance company.

Sorry for the long story, but I am just glad to get to post SOMETHING. Could someone that reads this share on FB for me. Thank you.

Aw she's so sweet!!! Sorry you have had so much stress with having to stay at the hospital longer than expected, not feeling well, and worrying about your DS. Hang in there! Hope you'll be home soon mama!
