I was supposed to be part of a blog train collab, so if you are getting here through the train I am very sorry about not having my part posted on time. I will have my part up tomorrow (November 7th) but wanted to let everyone know the reason why it is late.
I have now joined the grandma club. Below are pictures of my first grandbaby, Isaiah Daniel. He weighs 6 pounds 10 ounces and is 20 inches long. He scored an 8 and 9 on the apgar scales after birth but a few hours later he had a turn for the worse. Samantha was a real trooper throughout the whole birthing process. She got to the hospital at about 5 am and was already dilated to an 8 so pain meds were not an option. She had a bit of strep in her tummy so they tried to give her IV antibiotics so the baby wouldn't get sick throughout the delivery. She should have had 2 of the doses but there was only time for 1. She began pushing at 5:30 am but it took until 8:02 for little Isaiah to finally arrive.
We did get to hold him for a little bit before they took him to get cleaned up and warmed up at about 1:00 in the afternoon. I left the hospital for a bit to let Monty get some rest and to take care of a few other things I had to do. At about 4:00 pm I got a call from Danny that Isaiah had an x-ray taken and that his lungs were all white. His blood count was low, his oxygen was low, and his respirations were over 100 per minute. They said that he needed to be put on oxygen and that he might also need a blood transfusion.
Basically he ended up with the infection. He is in NICU and stable for now. I will keep everyone posted as I can (I am spending alot of time at the hospital and such). For now you can enjoy the beautiful pictures of Isaiah and keep him in your prayers.

Welcome to my blog!!!

I will be sharing a little part of me with all of you. I will TRY not to babble too much, but remember I am opinionated and very emotional at times which means that you may have to suffer through it anyway. I look forward to sharing with all of you and hopefully will make some new friends along the way.

Thanks for stopping by and check back often :)
