heroic henry, as we called him
fought a hard fight
but ultimately was unable to breathe on his own
we know in our hearts that he is in a much better place
and we are grateful that he is at peace

flashbulb

that’s what they call it, right?
a flashbulb moment-
Photobucket
that instant
when your
life
stops
and
suspends
Photobucket
when your hopes and dreams and plans
change and shatter
and
disappear

i gave birth

8lbs 2oz, 21.5″
of
baby boy

blue
Photobucket
after a long, but healthy pregnancy
followed by a long, but wonderful abc labor and delivery
we didn’t get our skin-to-skin and delayed cord clamping and long-dreamed-of introductions
instead
he was whisked away-
a little suction
we thought
meconium
we knew
laying
helpless
in the big recovery bed
when doctors came back
so we could “make decisions about our son”
deprived of oxygen
brain trama
seizures
cooling
now
we wait
tests 
and questions without answers
time and healing
but no plans
only prayer
my love

waiting

waiting game

today… we are 39 weeks

Photobucket

anxious and ready
to meet this long-dreamed-of
babe

camped out in blissful little compton
waking to the sound of the swallows
enjoying beach walks
cool breezes
and the luxury of lounging

Photobucket
all while
counting contractions
news soon-
we hope!
