Hello there! First of all, I just want to thank you all for your prayers and your thoughts. I just got home and would like to share this picture of my baby with you. I was lucky that my anesthesiologist happened to be a photographer hobbyist too! So he took around 70 pictures of Cheska right in the delivery room...



I'll just rest and recover for a few days. The wound from the C section still hurts but I'm moving around to speed up recovery. The little one is breast feeding every two hours! Hope everyone had a great new year! Bry and I spent new year's eve with Cheska in the hospital and saw fireworks from the t.v. screen. Nicole visited us early in the afternoon and we sent her home before dark to be sure that she would have a safe travel back home (minus the fireworks in the streets). We had some food sent over from home and it was a wonderful New Year's Eve for us.
