Today (August 12) I gave birth to our second son. I had severe pre-e so I didn't have choice of keeping him in, the doctors helped me have a natural childbirth even with all the meds that were need to keep me from getting sicker. He came out pissed and opened his eyes for mom and dad. He is in the NICU holding his own. He is so tiny and smells like life. We are taking lots and lots of photos and after a nap, I will come and update with our story and a pic.
