Default New daughter

Shameless plug! I have a new daughter, Deborah Elease Smith, born 7:58am 2/12/04, weighing 5 lbs 11.4oz and stretching out to 18.5" in length.

Woot!



There's me with my "Family" sticker on the dress greens after the C-Section. I was told that is because they don't want to mistake me for a Doctor or Nurse, but I think it was to help the Dad's remember their place: spectator. Snip, zzzzt, blorp, and out she came with nothing for me to do but oggle at the sharp knives and stuff until Deborah came out and exhibited her amazingly effective lungs+vocal cords. Oh, yeah. I get to change diapers too.

Hehe. No. Not my first. My fourth. So, I have plenty of practice in changing diapers and so on. I just thought it was funny to get that big "FAMILY" sticker on me, as if they didn't know who was on staff at the hospital and who wasn't on staff. It reminded me of the big letter 'A', for all of you who read classic English literature.

They have the stickers now because I was caught rummaging around in the meds... "Nurse! I need 250 mg morphine STAT!

Congrats Brian! I hope the boys don't burn down the house when you pass out from exhaustion.

You allways forget how small newborns are untill you come face to face with one.

I myself have no children(for which the world is truely thankful) but my younger sister was born 9 years after me... so I can remember all the smells and noise they make.

Congrats mate.

Well, I think my wife is doing a good job at getting all the meds. She's had morphine, dilaudin, demerol and now she's on some self-controlled drug pump because of some surgical complications (I think it's trapped air in the abdominal cavity causing her gall stone to lodge in the duct). But, and she's gotten three units of replacement blood so far, so that should help with all that she's lost (she hemorrages with every birth, unfortunately).

Yea, tell me about it. I was was scared to hold my little sister untill she turned like 12 months. She was so small, I was scared I'd break her or something.

And then I saw the doctors or nurses or whatever changeing the newborns' diepers in the hospital, and theyd be like juggleing the kid in one hand and holding the diapers in the other, it was crazy.

LOL – The first time I saw the changing of newborns I also freaked man babies are more robust than they seem. In fact I know a guy who’s father dropped him during the first hour of him being born and he seems to be alright (only problem is minor dumbness which may have been inherited).

Update:

Just got back from hospital with my new daughter but I didn't get to bring my wife with us. Hemmoragic stroke in the right basal ganglia and she is in the stroke ward. This means that she had some bleeding in the right side of the base of her brain. This made her lose some motor control on one side and have a difficult time moving, talking and thinking. OK, that's the bad news.

The good news is that it was a very small hemmorage and she is projected to make a complete recovery (timeline unknown though it might be as soon as a couple of days). Thank God, she had it while she was IN the hospital right next to the stroke ward! So, no worries, everything is going to be fine and we hope she gets to come home in a couple of days after they finish running tests to figure out why a 30 year old woman burst a blood vessel upstairs (normally you work up to this kind of thing by living for sixty or eighty years first).

Whew! Do you get this kind of excitement in your lives too, or am I just the lucky one? I have to think that there are a lot of you with similarly exciting events as well.

Now, off to take care of the four kids.

Well, it looks like the possibility of her recovering quickly is not there. She may not be able to be even minimally there for 6-8 weeks. I just visited her in the hospital today, and she wasn't even able to talk to me. Like there's nobody in there. Bummer.

Sounds like you'll have your hands full for the next couple of months! Here's hoping that she recovers well.

Wow thats no good at all. Hopefully she pulls around sometime soon, head things can be pretty unpredictable... in a coma or just out of it one day, and back like nothing the day later. I have honestly never heard any one use the term "bummer" when it comes to something this serious or bad. Normally Bummer is what I hear when someones car breaks down, or get a fender bender.

Hope she gets well soon!! Till then you got a whole lil army to keep track of, more power to ya!

Well, she might make a recovery but the neurologist doubts a complete recovery. She has has more bleeding and they have discovered that the cause is deep vein thrombosis (clots) that caused backpressure. Although she is unconcious, she was briefly conscious this morning because a nurse heard her say a word this morning. She is improving, thankfully. They give her a 50% chance of surviving. As they say, we'll see.
