Here he his. My little man!
The story of his entrance into this world is quite lengthy...lucky for you I don't have time to write the whole thing here, so I'll give you the most important details in a sweet and condensed version!
*7:30 AM check in to the hospital
*8:30 ish start pictocin...low dose so as not
to cause uterin rupture
(only 1% chance)
*8:45 Dr. O. breaks water
*9:30 most wanted man on labor and
delivery floor enters...the man
with the epidural needle!
*10:00 in the most EXRUCIATING
abdominal pain EVER. Everyone
thinks epidural not working
*5:00 PM Dr. O is informed and comes
rushing upstairs. His words
*5:15 enter operating room...4 of
the 5 layers of uterus had been
torn apart, last layer paper thin
with holes in it (please say ouch
out loud for my sake...it hurt BAD)
*5:48 PM Tytan Jeffrey Stevens born
9lbs 15 oz (1 oz shy of 10 lbs) 21 1/2 inches long
Dr.'s nicknamed him "Bubba" in the O.R. because he was so big.
His feet barely fit on the paper!
Still hungry a few hours after birth. (He had already eaten once!)
First time home! Bristol loved him!
I could list a lot of things that upset me about the whole situation, but I won't. It is unbelievable that I'm the 1%, and I don't think about the alternative. However, I feel extremely blessed. I am recovering well, and I have a healthy baby boy! I am so grateful that my husband was there to hold my hand during the operation, that my mom was there to help me through the long "labor," and that I still have somewhat of a uterus!!!
