He's Here!

My latest nephew is here!! He was born on the 4th, I believe.... (I know that's really bad, but with all that has been going on I can't remember....) 7 lbs, 11 oz, 20 1/2 inches long..... And he's so cute!! Everything went extremely well with the delivery~~ My sister didn't even have any type of pain meds, all natural!! She must have gotten an Amazone gene somewhere (I know I didn't get it!!) I'm so proud of her. I only wish I could be there to see him. I probably won't get to *meet* him until he's five years old.... :(

My Mom is in the hospital. :((( She went into the ER (again) on Sunday night, with pain and vomiting. (My Aunt took her.) Well they transferred her to a hospital that takes her insurance. They think she may have had a 'mini' or 'baby' heart attack!! :0 The reason they think that, is because of high enzyme levels in her blood. Also her blood pressure was high: 200/80. They have done a couple EKGs, were supposed to do a cat scan (don't know if they did that yet), and are doing a stress test today. I am so worried. :( And really wish I could be there, for her. I will have to rely on phone calls. I talked to her last night and this morning. She *seems* to be okay emotionally, but then.... She holds everything in (I am a let it all out type person, exact opposite...) so maybe she is not okay.

Our son is doing all right. He isn't even in any pain, so that's good. I hope it will be healed enough/and right so all they'll have to do is put a cast on next week. Or is it this week? Yikes! It is, the day after tomorrow..... I can't even keep track of the days... (sigh...)

Well til next time.... have a great day.

Glad to know your sister had a very normal delivery and a healthy baby boy!
Hope your mom's going to be fine. I think my mom has had all those kind of tests...nothing serious, but now she has a lot of maintenance meds.
Glad to know your little boy is doing all right ;)

I am glad too that my sister's delivery went well. I must be the only one who had a hard time. We both have different fathers, so I obviously got something from my dad's side... :/ My Mom is supposed to find out the results this morning (she probably already knows, I just need to call her--different time zones by three hours). If the stress test results are negative, she can go home and they would say it was her gall bladder (which she is also scheduled to have removed). If not, she will have to have a catheterization.

Thank you, Mimi. :)

Oh, hope all goes well. My mom had her gall bladder removed a long time ago already.
