I'm back to work. Today. Yes, I have been off for 6 weeks due to having a baybay! Yay! Landon Alan graced us with his presence October 27th at 7:06pm. It was opening pitch of the World Series game. Something that my husband will never forget :) especially since it was his beloved Cardinals. Landon weighed 8lb 40z. and was 20 inches long at just over 2 weeks early.
I had had a Dr appt that morning and my blood pressure was high. I had to wait around for a bit and get it rechecked. It was still a little elevated, so he sent me down to triage to have some labs done. When the labs came back, there was protein in my urine and my bp was still a little high. My Dr. decided our little boy would be here that day. Good thing I had brought my bag!
Everything went great with delivery. Landon latched on like a pro shortly after being cleaned off a little bit and we haven't had any issues with nursing at all! It is like night and day comparing this nursing experience with Aiden's.
I apologize for not updating sooner, but we no longer have a computer at home since we literally do not have any room for one. We plan to get a laptop at some point, but that won't be happening anytime in the near future. So, all of my updating will be from work when I can get the time!
I was so incredibly sad to leave my little man this morning, but the good thing is he gets to stay with daddy until a little after 11 and then goes to the sitter. I guess I am just nervous because of all the issues we had with Aiden's first sitter when he was a baby. I'm sure he will be fine. Which, reminds me, I need to make a phone call :)
On a not so happy note...my sister found out two weeks ago that she has breast cancer. She is 35. Her husband is in the Marines, so therefore, they are down in North Carolina without any family near...not sure all the details, just know that she will have to have a double mastectomy done and will be going through Chemotherapy. She also has 3 young children. Starting next week, I will be getting yearly mammograms per my Dr. Sometimes, life just really sucks. Especially since they won't be able to come home to family for Christmas. If I had more time that I could take off, I would be going to them.
