It all started to happen fast. My doctor came in about an hour after they got me settled in and before I knew it they started prepping me. I tried to not let my anxiety levels get to me. I tried to just be me, to talk to the staff, to smile, to get thru the procedure. I took the spinal block like a pro.
Then it became apparent it didn't fully take with me. I could move my legs and I could feel. I could feel the c section, I could feel my legs, my feet, my womb being cut open. I screamed and cried and they put me to sleep. I had some crazy dreams and woke up worried about my daughter. Before I was able to speak or understand, literally as soon as my eyes opened I was asking if she was okay. I had no idea what anyone was saying or where I was, but I kept asking. Finally they wheeled me around and I saw my husband with Harper, I had double vision and was not really coherent, but I managed to sit up and give him the ok sign. He gave it back and held her up so I could see her.
My husband brought Harper into the room as soon as he could. I got to hold her and see just how pretty she was.
I am a very lucky lady to have 2 cute kids! Harper is a great addition to our family.
After asking for 8 hours about getting up they allowed me to take a walk. I have been walking ever since!
I was told I would be here until around noon on Monday but today is Sunday, it is 8:10 in themorning and Harper and I will be going home today. The doctor is going to remove my dressing and pain medicine ball and then they should begin discharging us. I can't wait to go home and take my daughter with me.
I miss my house, my pets, my husband and most of all my son. It has been hard to be away from him!
Harper is a great baby. She sleeps well, eats well, snuggles like a pro and is nothing short of amazing. I can't wait to get her home to join our family.
Thank you to everyone that sent emails of well wishing, prayers and hope. It means so much to me!
