It's Not The End, It's Only Beginning

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

No swear words, well, really no words at all. No sound, no complaining, not much anyway. Just sheer determination. That about sums up Sara yesterday. She did get a little irritable though, and come to think of it she did say "holy hell" twice.

The girl is amazing. She went through the entire day serenely and mostly happy and smiling, all without drugs, until the very end when she had a injection of Fentanyl.

Being like his parents, Jax decided to bypass the normal way of doing things and stubbornly refused to budge, even after good, solid, hard work by his mother to get him to do so.

About 8:30 pm PST it was decided that a cesarean was going to be the way Jackson would make his entrance.

The grandparents sat in the room Sara had labored in and learned of our grandson's birth by the cleaning lady.

"Your grandson has lungs," she calmly announced as she walked by the room.

Within minutes, a smiling Sara was wheeled in clutching the golden ticket. A crying Cole followed closely behind.

Jackson Donovan Story weighed in at 7lbs 12 oz and was 19.5 inches long.

He's here. His mommy is sore. His daddy is proud and his grandparents are smitten. It was a good day.

yes, that IS a ponytail on my son's head. he's growing his hair out for Locks Of Love.

sneaking in a hashbrown from mcdonalds...shhhh!

Terri, congratulations. Ellie came out with a head like that, and it always amazes me how quickly it resumes its shape. I spent hours on that ball myself--it's a miracle, really.
Hope everyone's home and happy for Thanksgiving.

Very cool! I haven't had a little one around for a while. You are so lucky. New life holds so many promises.

OMG! just in the span of flipping through those visuals I had such a rush of emotions. I can only imagine how you guys must feel. BTW...frozen pops do make everything better.

So handsome. Perfect name. Tears all around ( in my eyes too! ) Enjoy every second with him. I wish Sara a speedy recovery!

There is nothing I love more than a beautiful baby being born. I'm so happy for you. I was just wishing last night that I had a baby to hold. They are such a comfort and my grandbabies live far away.

Congrats to your son and daughter in law. And to the Nana. He is beautiful.

Oh my goodness...he's so sweet! Congratulation Nana. You've got to be one of the hottest nana around. Btw, was he named after Jax of Sons of Anarchy by chance?

Congratulations!!! Beautiful grandson, lovely daughter in law, and handsome son! They make quite a good looking family!

Jackson (love the name) doesn't know how lucky he is yet to have won the lottery in having you for his grandmother! : )

Yup; Yogi was right. "It ain't over til it's over." And once this one starts, it'll never be over.

But what an awesome beginning!

Congratulations, blessings and Bear hug all round!

Yup; good start.

Hey - congrat's! Glad everything went well and everyone is doing okay! The baby is a sweetie and so is your DIL for letting you be there for the big event. Many DIL's wouldn't let that happen!
