She Is Here!!!!!!!!!

Enjoying Sunday afternoon with my family, we went to church and then to pizza after, which has become our  Sunday tradition.  The weather was spectacular 70 degrees, we came home, the kids immediately put on their swim suits and got the slip n slide out. At 4:30pm my water broke, what a whirl wind. We got to the hospital at 6:30pm. They took me in and said that a C-section would be happening now. They had an emergency c-section that needed to be taken before me, so I waited. I was finally taken back at 11:40pm and little Avery was born at 12:27am on 4/11/11. She weighed 4 lbs 13 oz and is 16 3/4 inches long. She is breathing on her own and doing very well. I didn't get to see her until 4:30am, when I was taken out of recovery and brought to my room. They took me in the nursery on a bed and let me hold her for about 10 minutes. What a dream, she is perfect and so beautiful.

It is now 9:30am and doctors are doing a ultrasound on her head to see about the hydrocephalus and on her back to see what kind of damage there is to her back.  We are waiting to hear if she will have surgery today on her back. I can't thank you all enough for your prayers, she is a miracle and we are blessed.
