Meet Miss Mabel

15 01 2008

Lou Garrig came to me in a dream and said “You are ready now.”  Then I woke up as my water broke.  I’ll spare you all the gross details. 
All that matters is about 5 hours later, Mabel Lou Flint was born. She weighed 6 lbs, 10oz and is 18 1/4″ long. I breastfed her successfully and she was taken away.
Unfortunately they never brought her back to me. The noises we thought were so cute are apparently her having trouble breathing. I’m home and she’s not and I miss her.
With luck she will continue to get better and we will be able to bring her home soon. Cale hasn’t gotten to meet her yet. He got to see her through a window.
I changed her diaper today. Its funny how something so simple means so much when its taken away from you. And how much I keep wanting to cry. About everything.
Cale didn’t come easy either. Damn kids giving me a hard time from the beginning. 😀

More pictures on my flickr, with more to come after she comes home.
