That's awful about CPS. I'll keep you in my prayers. Hopefully the rest of your blood work will come back just fine.
Magnolia is just beautiful. Congrats again!
Focus on Magnolia, mama. CPS is just a headache you don't need. You know you've done nothing wrong, and I'm sure they can't be bothered to really give you a hard time once they see/get the information they need.
You just love on your baby girl!! It's going to be ok. You've done NOTHING wrong.
She is beautiful, Stormy! You did good. You did real good.
Stormy, I am so sorry you are having to deal with all this stress right now. Try to not let the Mommy guilt get you, the best thing you can do for your little girl right now is heal so you can be there 100% for her. Letting her go to the nursery while you rest was a really good choice! You have lots of time to make up for it. Praying for a swift recovery so you guys can get home and get on with being a family.
As I was falling asleep last night, Stormy, I was thinking of you and Magnolia. The movie Steel Magnolias popped into my head, and this morning I googled magnolia flowers.
"Magnolia is an ancient genus. Having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. To avoid damage from pollinating beetles, the carpels of Magnolia flowers are extremely tough."
I think your sweet girl is going to be just fine. You gave her that name for a reason.
She is so beautiful! Welcome little one.
The separation after a c-section is truly one of the hardest things to deal with. I highly recommend reading Silent Knife - Chapter 4, to help with a little of the processing. I am still upset at the thought of being separated for 6 hours from DD over 2 years ago.
Good luck recovering and getting to know your little one.
