It was really hard to get on the computer after I quit work on medical leave....I was done on the 20th of Dec. and then it was Christmas , and then New Years, and then all of a sudden I was in labor!
Sunday Jan. 7th, we had gone to our friends Brenda and Jason's house for dinner...and finally left around 11. We had just got home, when my water broke!...so it was off to the hospital...where I assumed I would go into labor...But NO! Instead, i sat in the hospital until Wed. when they induced me!
Jeremy was born four weeks early, on Jan 10th at 9.22 pm. The labor went fairly quickly-as far as labors go, and Jer was born after about 5 hours. He was 6 lbs, and ever so cute!
After that it was in and out of the hospital for the next month, because of severe jaundice and dehydration. They were also concerned as he lost more weight then he was supposed to and for a while weighed 5 lbs.
He is out now, and weighs in at a healthy 7 lbs, 2 ozs.
I am glad, because i was really getting sick of the hospital......
One funny story about my delivery.
I was in the middle of pushing, when my very wonderful OB said, "There is only one thing I ask of you....You have to name the baby after me...."
Well for some reason I can't quite fathom, I got it in my head that God was talking to me and telling me to name my baby Amos. So This is what is going on in my head..."God wants me to name my baby Amos, it's a word from God....Oh wait a minute....Amos is the doctors name... (Dr. Akimbee's first name) and it took me a couple of minutes to realize that it was actually the Dr. talking to me...so then i turn to Kendal crying and say..."His name isn't Amos, it's Jeremy.....I miss Jeremy! He died.....Kendal was like....that's nice but you should probably concentrate on pushing now hon.....LOL!
He is very cute (Jeremy that is) and we are loving him. However, I am a little worn out, as we also have Talon living with us, and I am kind of at the end of my rope. He is supposed to be going home soon...and as much as we love him, I will be glad to have some time to get aquainted with my son....and sleep would be nic
