OT: my baby granddaughter arrived today!!

christmascandyAugust 22, 2011

My newest granddaughter arrived today via C-section. She was very tiny, 5 lb. 8 oz. and has had a very long day of trying to get her blood sugar and temperature stabilized, but finally things seem to be OK. I can't believe how tiny she is, my babies were both over 7 lbs, but she is a fighter and really let everybody know she was unhappy with getting stuck with so many times to test her blood!! LOL

The man upstairs really took care of us today and I am so grateful and feel very blessed. I just wanted to share my good news with all my friends here!!

I'll have to wait a bit to catch the bus now, as my DD is going to need help with the 3 yr. old once she gets home since she can't lift anything heavy. I guess you'll just have to make the bus come here instead, LOL

I am so thrilled for you, and so relieved that all is ok.
Know its been a rough day and a lot of worry before it even arrived.

I'd gladly take the bus there. While you are babysitting little 3yr old Cody, you can point me in the direction of all those fabulous thrift stores you go to. LOL.

hugs, Karen

I hope your DD recovers from the surgery quickly.

Congratulations Candy on the arrival of the new 'Little Princess'!
What a wonderful Blessing.. I'm so happy to hear she is doing well. She sounds like a little 'toughy' too.
I'm sure with you helping out, DD thinks of you as a Blessing too.
Looking forward to hearing her name and maybe a pic or two.

Don't worry about missing the Bus...I think we can change the itinerary and head your way - no problem...
As Karen said, just point us in the direction of those fab TS !!
