Nicsflower_17Sorry for the delay. There was a small complication. Nicole needed a DNC to remove the placenta. All went well and she is recovering although very groggy from sedation. Your continued prayers are a blessing to us.

Tori is beautiful. She weighed in at a whopping 8lbs 4oz (Chad says that she weighs more than Nicole) and measured 21 1/2 inches long. We are in love with her!

Due to Nicole’s situation following the birth, I don’t have a lot of pics yet. Here are a few to get you started. Many more to come…

Nicsflower_6I just scoped out the cafeteria and things look promising. There is a Blimpie Subs (lunch today) and a Starbucks in the lobby. Great start. I went for a Cherry Coke and Sun Chips for my mid morining snack. Oh, Nicole just got the epidural and is now enjoying some ice chips. Nicole wants you to know that the doctor said that she was stellar!

Nicsflower_2We had a contraction! Well, I should say that Nicole had a contraction. It was rather dramatic. Nicole stood up when it first came on and she almost passed out. The nurse had to use smelling salts and call all available personnel to the room stat! They stopped the Pitocin until the epidural arrives so we are back to laughing and having fun. I got a picture of her right after the contraction along with Kristin fixing her back up before the next one hits.
