We have a baby!

Sondra had her baby tonight, via C-section. She was doing fine when I left her, at peace and in some pain. Her baby, Michael, was in the nursery under an oxygen hood, but the pediatrician had just predicted Sondra could hold him within an hour (three hours after birth). Vince got to spend some skin-to-skin time with Michael and was telling Sondra about the cute things Michael had done already. Sondra couldn’t wait to breastfeed him.
Throughout the day there were plenty of ups and downs. When it was all said and done and Sondra was back in her room, waiting to hold her baby, she told me she was proud of herself and felt everything had happened as well as could be expected, under the circumstances.
I’ll post a more detailed story later. For now, I’m going to bed. It’s been a long haul for me, too.
