Mom and Henry worked hard for almost 15 hours before we all decided that a c-section was best, the ups and downs of the whole day made the entire family very thankful for the miracle of modern medicine as we dealt with issues one after the other all day ranging from pain to heart rate issues and fevers.  But we’re both recovered and thankful.  Our world is a little smaller and bigger at the same time.
