I am so happy and relieved that everything went well and everyone is also doing well. I am happy that your wife is now just about clear from pre-e. I hope her BP comes down and stays down quickly. With my first pg, mine came down fast, but the second took almost a week. Again...so happy for you. Do you have any pics?

Her very first picture. Notice her size compared to the nurse's hand and you get an idea of just how small she is. Even the premie outfit she wore home was too big.

Thanks for sharing her picture.

Your daughter is very cute (I'm sure that she has you wrapped around your finger already), and looks perfect.

Glad to hear that she went home, hopefully mother and daughter are growing healthier by the day.

Continued Prayers,
Gordon

Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you and your wife. I'm glad everything went well with the birth and that your little girl didn't have to go into the NICU. She's so precious!!
