amandab & Maija update

Postby megansmom » Thu May 20, 2004 01:00 pm

I finally broke down and called Amanda to see how it went. She had a planned c-section on May 18 at 12:00. Maija Grace was born at 12:07pm weighing in at 5 pounds 12 oz. She is 18 and 3/4 inches. She has lots of golden blond hair that is somewhat curly. She is down to 5 lbs 4 oz but everything is looking good. She has not had to go to the NICU and has been rooming in with them. Amanda said she has a little jaundice, but not enough to cause concern, just keeping her in the sunlight. Everything went well with the surgery and recovery. Amanda was on the mag for 24 hours, but she got through that and everything looks great! She probably won't go home for a couple of days. She said to tell you all that she is looking forward to getting back home and chatting with you all, but it will probably be a couple of weeks. Her computer at home is upstairs and she won't be able to go upstairs for a couple of weeks. I am just so relieved all went well. I am so excited for her and Tim!

1 x 10 1[:X][:X][:X][:X][:X][:X] kisses little Maija Grace.

Boy have I been sitting on a razor blade waiting to hear this happy news.

'Fess up everyone, do you feel like the folk in those TV commercials? You know, the ones where it's the financial advisor making the wedding speech, or cooing at the baby through the nursery window??? I know that I do, I'm just bursting with happiness that I get to be a PF e-auntie [:D][:D][:D]

Thank you so much for the update!!!

Great news Amanda and Tim, I can't tell you how excited I am for you. Amanda - your pregnancy and your strength has been such an inspiration to me. My husband even asks each day of there is any "new news about that lady in TX..." Hearing that you two are now holding your own little healthy miracle after all you've been through, gives him much hope as well. That is huge for us and many others here, thanks for letting us all be a part of it.

Can't wait to hear more and to see pictures!!! CONGRATULATIONS again!
