This is kinda delayed, but I just want to announce the birth of my most beautiful, darling, wonderful, healthy baby boy, Hector Benjamin, last July 16 at 11:25 pm. He weighed 7 lbs. and 3 ounces (but has since then gained a full pound!:) ) and was 50 centimeters tall. My labor was difficult - I had to go through a 'trial of labor' for 15 hours before my doctor told me that I had to get a CS to keep me and my baby safe - and the weeks that followed have not been a walk in the park (he feeds every 1.5 to 2 hours or so), but seeing him grow, smile, kick, punch, move and basically do anything, made me feel its all worth it.
And in a bit of more recent good news, I (think - I keep feeling that maybe its just a practical joke that someone sent me with the CP letter head through TNT - lol) am now a fluke!!!
As for the thorn, my husband and I, due to a paritcularly expensive investment, are now officially poor for the next ten years. Sigh.
Thanks to all who prayed for my son!
