You may have noticed that things have been really quiet around here the last few weeks. We’ve had an eventful few months with miss Rory and the last week and a bit we decided that we needed to be just us for the time being.
Aurora arrived on Saturday February 23rd, at 11:57pm. She’s a few days old now and she’s doing great! She’s been off breathing support for over 12 hours and holding her own. She’s tiny! Grayson was a big preemie weighing almost 2lbs more than the average baby born that early. Rory isn’t that big, but she is about half a pound bigger than the average. She’s a tiny 4lb 12oz little girl.
I’m recovering well from my c-section. Goodness I have been through surgery before but this was the hardest recovery by far. I do think that being stuck in bed for so long made the desire to be up and moving that much stronger after and has definitely helped me be up and walking more than I thought I would.
I’m going home tonight for the night to see my little man. I’ve only seen him once since I was readmitted on the 15th. It’s been a long few days since then! Then tomorrow I’ll be back and staying here at the Ronald McDonald house so I can be here for Rory as much as possible.
I’ll try and post more details later this week, but we wanted to let you know why we’ve been quiet the last bit.
Thank you for all your prayers these past months, and the prayers that will continue. We’re starting a new part of our journey now.
