As promised – PICTURES!!!

I’m not going to expound too much on what’s happening in each – they’re pretty self-explanatory – and right now, I’m just in an excruciating amount of pain. Here are the highlights from the last couple of days:

* I managed to get a cellulitis infection around the incision, and now I’m on some IV antibiotics to clear it up.

* My GI tract is so backed up and painful that I spent a good deal of yesterday just crying from the hurt.

* Daniel only gets to eat every three hours, which means he’s up and fussing and crying for the third hour, but apparently if I actually fed him every two hours, he’d use up all of his energy eating and none of it growing. (huh?)

* Sometimes this means having to feed him through a gavage tube (that’s what that tube going into his nose is), but at least I’m producing plenty of milk. (That is a massive understatement.)

Proof that Joe was, in fact, there with me in the OR.

The actual true knot itself. I was slightly misinformed: the rest of the cord was wrapped around his NECK twice (including one hitch), around his body once, and then around his arm once.

This is possibly the best post-partum picture EVER taken of me.

Daniel, in all his glory

    Yay photies at last! What a little heartbreaker. So pretty he is!

    I think you need to stay away from Celtic work for a while – you’ve been internalizing the knots, nyuk nyuk. That looks horrible and I’m so happy that things came out so well in the end.

    OMG! OMG! OMG! He is soooooo adorable. I can just see him wrapped in a giant leaf like an itty bitty elf or fairy baby should be. Especially that one of him in his itty bitty hat! So amazing he is. I can not wait to see him and hold him and love him and sing to him and play with him and ….

    So glad he’s healthy and you’re recovering, although painfully. He’s a complete cutie.

  12. November 18, 2007

    Wow! Just look at him, what a cutiepie! Such a sweet little boy. :)Congrats! Glad the both of you are doing well.

    I laughed hard for a few seconds. Lily’s shirt is so…”her”.

    Baby “D” looks very alert and that is a good thing. He kinda reminds me of a wearwolf featus sculpture that I saw once.

    You realize that you will have to change the amount of kids you have from a half number to a whole number.
    I am glad that all is well and you have a beautiful new member of your family.

    Ah Dawn, Bobby and I are so glad that you and Daniel are both safe and well.
    He is so adorable.
