My sweet boy is here!

Edward Blanton Hudgens is here! Praise be to God from whom all blessings flow!
We got to the hospital and they were waiting on us, three of them. Supposedly, there weren't many girls in labor. They took us to our "room" if that's what you call it. It was just a bed with a curtain drawn around it. There they got us prepped and ready with IV's and gave me medications for a queasy stomach. I was so excited when our anetheisologist (sorry about the spelling) came in! He was the same one I had last time and SUCH a nice man! I was glad to see him again! But then we played the waiting game.
I was doing pretty well up until 12:30 hit. Then I started feeling really sick, mainly anxiety! And no, they can't give you anything. 1:00 - They rolled me into the OR and got things going. What a blessing it was when I asked if they were close to getting started and I saw my sweet baby boy! They swaddled him and I got to see him up close. This was much different from Reese....they held her up and then took her to the NICU (along with Greg). Ward got to stay for a few minutes and I got to give him a sweet kiss!
My recovery room experience was much better than the last. I didn't get the "shakes" in the RC and had a great team of nurses helping me! (Note to self, try to deliver again when no one else is)
But, that night, I got the "itches". The astromorph (I think that's right...a cousin of morphine) can make you itch! It wasn't so pleasant but the next day it was gone! I can't begin to tell you how great the experience was at Richland again this time! Everyone took such good care of us!
