We’re home…

Yes, we were back at French. At first, we didn’t know what to expect but because of the experiences over the last week, we of course presumed the worst. But, things are ok, just a bit more complicated. She had a lot of fluid buildup which was gathering on her left side just above her incision. It has been there since the day of the c-section, and has been getting worse. It is likely infected (pretty sure now, as she has a fever), so she is on breastmilk safe antibiotics, and we have to keep about an inch of her incision open so it can heal from the inside out. Sterile gauze has to be stuffed in and then removed every 24 hours for the next few weeks until it heals up, or the Dr. thinks he can go ahead and suture it back up again.

So, a relatively simple answer, considering we were prepared for them to have to open her back up and admit her with two nursing babies 30 min. away…..God is still good, of course, but maybe a bit nerveracking at times?

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    Man, you just can't seem to catch a break! Look at it this way: with all your troubles through pregnancy, delivery & now "post delivery," your girls are bound to be absolute dream children. And if they give you ANY trouble for the next 18 years, simply have them read all your blog entries…over & over again. :)

    I'm with Jen. Can you just be a boring mom of twin newborn girls, please? I want to read a blog entry that says, "All I did today was nurse one baby then another. Oh, and I changed a lot of diapers."

    Sometimes I pray for you to "just" get to have the kind of life where there's 3 little kids running around driving you crazy. Not that I really wish that kind of mayhem on you, but it would indicate all things "go", right?

    Take care!
