Wow ... now that's a birth story!
Congratulations on the safe, if scary, arrival of your beautiful girl ... I hope healing is a quick process for you and that you're all able to settle in at home together very soon!
Oh, so true! My husband has had a cold for the past few days and you'd think the world was coming to an end ... meanwhile my due date came and went a week ago, and I don't think it even occurs to him that I might not have much sympathy for his little aches and pains!
Not the OP, but I just wanted to say that 5/1/11 means January 5, 2011 ... apparently we Americans are the only ones in the world to whom it means May 1 (something I'm finally used to after living nearly ten years in Sweden!). :D
