Wordful Wednesday: Selfish

13 10 2010

To anyone who feels personally offended that I haven’t been updating:
We were admitted Thursday night.
Baby Boy Mak showed up Friday morning  (6lbs, 4 oz), via a slice in my adbomen and since then, I’ve been trying not to die*.
Seems my bribe of pumpkin cupcakes didn’t work as my arm’s bruising up from my IVs (yes, plural) and blood draw sites. At least they listened to me and only used tape when 100% necessary.
Anyway, here we are this morning after breakfast.

He’s a champ and has charmed all the nurses.
I, meanwhile, continue to be on modifed bedrest, while charming the nurses with my humor.

* Dr. Wiki on HELLP Syndrome. My platlets were at 6k during the event, if you get to the part that talks about severity. So thanks to the aunt who said I looked terrible while my major organs were failing. You win the “awesome. shut-up” award.

Zoicks! That’s a new one for me, and my favorite thing to do while in my first pregnancy was hang out in the medical library and read obstetrics books (favorite chapter, of course, “Complications in Pregnancy and Childbirth”).

You look great, kiddo, and that’s a pretty gorgous li’l spawnlet!

I was wondering …. and am so glad to hear that you are both doing well! What an adorable little guy. Congrats!

Now, get some sleep, because it will be in short supply for the next 20 to 30 years!

Yippie!!!!! You get a new baby and I get a new identity…because this day needs to be about me…because it just is.

Congratulations…now you get to start stepping in squishy things.

Congratulations on your baby!!!
I hope you didn’t do too much whining over the giving birth part like a lot of women do. And birth is a regular thing that occurs daily around the world, hardly an excuse to avoid blogging… 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS to you all once again!!!

Congratulations! I thought the big event might be going on. I’m glad you’re doing better. Keep up the charm and the nurses might slip you some extra lime Jell-O. 🙂

Owwwwwwwwwwwwwww! And I thought an episiotomy was bad.
Thank you for not dying.
Welcome, Baby Mak!

Wahoo! Congratulations on your new family!!! You and hubby must be soooo happy 🙂

Ugh on the HELLP thing 😦 It sounds like you’re going to be OK tho’… Yay!

And a *special* congrats for not killing anyone for asking stoopid questions during your pregnancy! (You didn’t, did you?)

Are you missing any foods any more?

Congratulations, and so glad you stayed alive! Hope you’re feeling all better soon. Baby boys are wonderful (even when they are 16 and grumpy about getting up in the morning!) Can’t wait to hear more about adorable Baby Mak 🙂
