She's Here!!

Liliana Lee - born 6/19/09 at 4:19 AM 8 pounds, 2 oz, 20 inches long.

Look at that head of dark hair!! Isn't she the cutest baby you have ever seen? This was taken on Jay's cell just before Liliana was whisked away to the nursery.

I got to the hospital at around 7 PM and was in the labor room with Jay, Ang and her mom Lori for several hours. Ang had an epidural and was quite comfy and slept through a great deal of her labor fortunately. At around 2 AM Angela spiked a temp and it was time to push at that point and the staff made me leave. I had to wait in the waiting room alone down several halls and through 2 sets of locked doors - that place is like Fort Knox and they sure don't make it comfy or easy for grandparents to wait. (DH was at Jay's house overnight Brady sitting). Finally at around 4:30 ish, Lori came to get me and once we got back to Ang's room the staff stopped me and wouldn't let me in so I had to go back down the hall and wait alone again. Finally around 5:30 Jay was able to come out to see me. By then Liliana was in the nursery and would be for some time so I decided to head home when it was clear I wouldn't see her any time soon. Both mom and baby needed some more fluids and antibiotics for the temp.

I just talked to Jay and Angela's temp is gone and both she and the baby are going to have their baths and they should have the baby soon. I am going to take another quick nap before I shower and head back up. Hopefully, I will see her for myself finally and take lots of pics!!

This very tired Grammy Linda is signing off for now!!

Until Next Time - Hugs, Grammy Linda
