We arrived at the hospital at 615am on Thursday morning, April 19. We got all checked in and settled in our room. We quickly learned our scheduled c-section would be delayed due to another surgery. We patiently waited! Of course during this time Baby J's heart rate dropped a little so we had to be wheeled back instead of my hopeful plan to literally hop onto the operating table!
Everything went great with the surgery. Dr. Mitchell did a great job and Jensen came out crying right away. Justin was able to stay with him in the operating room with me. Then I was able to finally hold him and be wheeled back to our room together. We were so excited to share the name and news of our newest addition with family. The first person we called was BIG BRO Jackson. We then called parents and siblings. Unfortunately I got pretty sick for about 2 hours after surgery... but did better and we all enjoyed a busy day of visitors.
Jackson was the first to meet Jensen and did great to give hugs and kisses. Jackson was a little unsure of me in a hospital bed... but did better seeing me the next day normal again.
Jensen and I have been hanging out this afternoon listening to music and just relaxing as Justin hits the gym. We had a great visit with Jackson and Justin's parents today as well as some friends. We truly feel blessed.
Funny things to remember:
Jensen has easily sneezed 20 plus times within the first 24 hours.
Jackson keeps forgetting his name... although we think by now he remembers!
Jensen slept great the first night in the hospital!
