Our essay on birth
Monday, June 18th, my wife and I were woken up by a phone call at 5am. There was another scheduled c-section that morning and they had finished early and the nurses wanted to know if we could come in earlier than our scheduled 8am. Bags already packed, we headed down to Orem Community Hospital. They started processing Callie in just as family started arriving. Callie's dad had flown in from Texas, all her sisters were there with their husband bright and early Monday morning.
Dr. Judd and Dr. Gordon performed the c-section, just like they did with the twins Ila and Ruby. Same room almost 2 years later. We even got to be in the same room that all of our other 3 kids were born/taken care of in.
Everything went fine. Callie is doing great and Lulu is fantastic. 1 week and a day later not much has changed. Other than the fact that somehow we were blessed with another little one without any complications, all 10 fingers, all 10 toes and cute as a button to boot. She sleeps, she eats, she poops. She NEVER cries.
Life is truly grand.
