She entered the world quietly -- but others weren't
Gabby has slept most of today. She has had her mom, dad, both grandmas, grandpa, step grandpa, two aunts, two uncles, her great aunt, her second cousin, her third cousins (2 of them) and two of her dad's friends all trying to take pictures of her within a few hours. As many as 8 cell phones were be pointing at her at the same time.
I tried to stay in the background and wait my turn.
Bart and John have headed home. Henry (Salinda's bf) and I will spend the night in the room with them and Sadie will stay at Henry's folks house for the night. Kyle and Christy will be stopping by tomorrow and depending on how she is doing, I will either go home with them or stay another night or two.
Apparently Salinda is in for a couple more hard days. Her kidney problems continue. This is the reason for the c-section so quickly. Her kidney affection returned and the antibiotics that were safe for the baby were not helping. Her temperature was rising and the only antibiotic that might help is one that would harm the baby. So he went ahead and delivered her.
Salinda should be in the hospital for a few days yet. We'll see how it goes....
