modern medicine

two weeks ago today we were at the hospital awaiting the arrival of our precious little angel MsTay. Labor was progressing well enough, we got to the pushing part of the process and after 2 hours of nothing happening it was time to make a decision. to keep pushing and getting no where or to go in to surgery. the dr stepped out of the room, the love of my life and i said a prayer and decided if nothing happened in the next 15 minutes we would go to surgery, so we ended up in surgery, i wish i could say that it was a blur but it wasn't it was scary and nerve racking, i was exhausted and scared. but we made it through and it's a good thing we did what we did or we would not have made it. little MsTay was trying to come in to the world face first not just posterior but literally, she was looking where she was going and was stuck on her way out.
Two weeks from the day we are doing well enough, i'm still very tired and a little sore, but most of the bumps and bruises are healed up.
i've been surprised at how many people have asked me if i'm having more babies after this, i honestly can't answer. though grateful for the blessing of MsTay, i'm definitely not baby hungry at this time.

Wow, Denice. How scary and overwhelming that must have been!

But she's so beautiful.

I'm so glad she arrived safe and whole and you're healing all right.

And I definitely understand about not being baby hungry, and I haven't even had to go through surgery yet!!
