Sullivan Levi Strong

... came earthside 2weeks ago yesterday. I will come back later to write my story but the short version is a 24 hour labor, 3 hours of crazy pushing, transfer to hospital for c/s, and a 2 week stay for mama.

I lost tons of blood, had 6 units transfused, developed a severe illeus and am still quite sick. I was discharged last night.

I have never been so exhausted.

Oh, no!

Congratulations on Sullivan's birth - even if it wasn't what you planned. I'm glad that you are both safe! I hope that you continue to recover and have plenty of help so you can just focus on your new babe and getting well.

I worried when your last post said you were inlabor and you never reported back. So glad to hear you are okay, but gosh, so sorry to hear how things went. Not the way you want to spend your first two weeks. Was Sullivan able to be with you the whole time? hope so! I am so glad you are finally home. Take it easy and enjoy your little one, the worst is over! Please let us know how things are going.

and I am home again. I had to go back to er on Sunday. I came home Thursday evening. I hope to not darken the hospital doorstep for very long time. One day shy of 3 weeks... way too long for what was to be natural home birth...

I'm so sorry to hear about the rough time you're still having. Hopefully you are gaining strength every day. How is little Sullivan doing?

Oh no, what happened? I hope you're truly healing this time and you're able to fully enjoy Sullivan. Take care of yourself one day at a time.
