Elle was in the hospital

Elle and Shevaun have had a tough week this week. We found out on Monday, at Elle's two week checkup, that Elle has RSV. The doctor immediately sent Shevaun and Elle to the hospital, and he made Elle wear an oxygen mask on the way from his office to the hospital. She was there until late Wednesday when they finally let us take her home, but she is still hooked up to monitoring equipment and she has to wear an oxygen tube still. Not so fun. I have placed some pics below, they aren't on flickr, so just click on each pic to see a larger version.

Isn't she so cute, even with her oxygen tubes.

Here's a pic of Shevaun holding the babe.

Another one of her just looking at me.

The Latest

Well Elle is sick. Her papa and I were both sick when she was born so I'm sure that's where she got it. The poor little love can hardly eat because she can't breathe very well out her nose. The dr. said she was doing well but to keep an eye on her. She now weighs 10.5 pounds and is an inch longer. She's also in the 97th percentile for height. We may have a future model on our hands......

This last week was an interesting week for me. I was in the hospital Wednesday night with a fever of 101.5. The verdict was that I had lost a lot of blood during the delivery. My hemadacrit (not sure if that is spelled right) level was at 29 and they do blood transfusions at 27. So that explains why I was so tired and weak. They have me taking iron supplements and it seems to be helping.

My mother in law has been in town all week and has been a huge help. My house has never been so clean and organized. I wish she didn't have to leave.

I need to go now and take care of the babe. she just woke up.

Flickr is back up. Here is the link to the photos.

Elle has Arrived

Elle has arrived. She popped out yesterday at 2:19 p.m. weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs. 11 oz. Needless to say she gave her mom a hard time while coming out. She is 21 inches long, and a very happy and healthy baby. Mom is doing fine too, she's just a little tired.

Thanks to all of you that visited us in the hospital or have rendered us service through out the pregnancy, it wasn't an easy pregnancy for Shevaun, but she loves little Elle and says it was all worth it.

We will post more pictures on when we can.

Still pregnant.

So I'm still pregnant. The baby is measuring like she is going to weigh around 9 pounds when she's born. I'm due on saturday but my dr. thinks that I will probably have to have a c-section the middle of next week. Crappy! I guess things could be worse.
Jake started school this week and it is already turning out to be a really busy semester. But he only has a year and a half left. Yea!
Nothing else new is going on here. Just waiting impatiently and uncomfortably to have this baby!
