Update from Beckie's Mom...Little Man Liam is here!
Beckie was feeling bad that she had not written since she snuck a blog in weeks ago, so I offered to post a short update untill she can get back on to post for herself. She is more than busy with the new baby and a new house! Liam was born Monday, August 22nd at 7:39 a.m. and weighed 7 lb 6 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. Never has there been such a beautiful baby, but remember this is the grandma talking.
After her post at 32 weeks she ended up in the hospital briefly and then was on bed rest. She was taken off bedrest and a week later, the day they loaded the truck and headed for the new house, her water broke! Thus began a funny, scary, exciting saga that I will let her tell as only she can. After suffering nearly the full 9 mos. with hyperemisis, she didn't catch a break and had one of the worst deliveries ever. Her epidurals (2 of them) did not take and she hemorrhaged so that the baby had to be extracted by vacuum. The wonderful part is that the baby is perfect and Beckie is recovering very, very well. I am so proud of how she has taken to being a mom! She and Chris are wonderful parents and it shows in how calm and sweet natured Liam is.
I will let Beckie fill you in on all the details. She just wanted all to know she is OK and so is Liam. She (and her family) appreciate all the kind thoughts and prayers that were sent her way.
