I was sick with preeclampsia and I went into the hospital. They sent me home that afternoon and told me to check with my doctor the following day.
In honor of Sandi’s birthday, her mother Gwen offers this guest post. September 25th is one of those days I will never forget. Nine months earlier, you were given to me as a Christmas gift. Your father said I could open it in 9 months. And nine months to the day, you wanted out. I [...]
“Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.” ~Unknown “Life gives us brief moments with another…but sometimes in those brief moment we [...]
We have not seen a Dr. yet today. We are hoping that they will come around soon so that we can get discharged sometime today. It would be nice to start settling into the routine at home and relieve Grammy and Grandma and Grandpa Brown from their duties of taking care of the Cruop Twins. [...]
Okay, I’ve got the pictures up and available on the web site. You’ll have to figure out where they are. Just kidding, they’re right here. I haven’t cleaned up the layout (and it’s not very girly at all), but at least they’re up. Enjoy! [UPDATE: Oh, and I'll be titling the pictures and putting descriptions [...]
And the name is…….Madeline Christine Brown!
This is Bill. Sandi has my computer down at the hospital and I can’t remember my password to post under my own account. That’ll teach me to use unique, random passwords! [UPDATE: Edited authorship.] First things first, we aren’t sure if we’re going to name her Eliza. We’ve always said that we want to see [...]
More breastfeeding. Sandi’s doing great and our daughter could’nt be any cuter. I’ll get some pictures up soon.
Sandi’s breastfeeding the baby right now—she latched on right away!
She was born at 11:09 pm. She weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and was 19 and a half inches long. Sandi is doing well.
We’re about 15 minutes out now!
There’s quite a crowd ahead of us so we’ll probably be going into the OR around 10 pm.
Her liver and other organs are okay. I’ll post more soon.
Now we’re in our triage room. If memory serves, we’ll be here for awhile. Sandi will be having blood work done to make sure
At the hospital right now…
We’re leaving shortly for the hospital. To use a bad joke, we’re going to make like a fetus and head out.
We’re here at the doctor’s office and the doctor said that tonight’s the night!!!
Lots of contractions, six or seven minutes apart. Are we starting??? [UPDATE: Called the good doctor and he said to try laying down for a bit and see if the contractions subside. We got the suitcase packed and ready, so Sandi's going to try to get some shut-eye. I doubt I'll be able to, though.]
This is just a quick test of my ability to post a message from my cell phone.
Today I had to go to the hospital because I was having contractions every 10 minutes and they would not stop, even if I was lying down. The on-call Dr. suggested that we go to Good Sam because if the conditions were favorable she would most likely be born. I was quite freaked out at [...]« Previous Entries
