Early morning call..

Last night I was on nights and what a flipping night with not even time for a break. I was so happy to see my bed as all the shifts in the last few days have been the same. Just a hour in to my sleep I got a call to say my new great granddaughter was at last on her way. There have been so many problems throughout so it was good news indeed. I tried to catch a little more sleep but just couldn't and then the news she was here. Alexi. Very beautiful. We set off on the two hour drive to see her and would you believe I had a stomach upset all the way. We of course snapped many photo's and here are just a few.

   Jade my granddaughter was in labour for quite a while. On Wed night she called while I was at work and said her waters had gone and she was 4 cm. I thought Alexis would be here by morning but no the labour stopped. I was so cross in the fact that they did nothing but monitored and left her with no waters and 4cm. Open to infection. This morning they put her on a drip and speeded things up. Alexis was born. Jade had to stay in hospital while they monitored close because of the risk of infection. While we were there the doctor confirmed that indeed she had a infection and she is currently on a antibiotic drip and heat laps around her. Why do they take these risks. The antibiotics should sort it out and they are at least monitoring closely.
    Then on the way back my stomach decided it was really not happy and I spent the journey with my head in a bag. I am still felling ropey and will go up to bed very shortly.
       It was so worth getting woke up for.   Welcome to the world Alexis. xxx

WELCOME BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS BABY ALEXIS... OH that SWEET Tiny little Face.. Love the Pictures of All of you together!

What are these Doctors thinking any more... WHY wait... There is NO reason for that..
I do NOT understand the medical Community...
When I go to get a Hair Cut... I tell the person what I want and that is what I get.
When I go to have a car Painted I tell them what color I want.. That is what I get..
SO WHY can DOCTORS tell US what they WILL or Will NOT do??? We PAY them for services.. and we should get what we WANT.
At least you now have a GORGEOUS new baby to Kiss and Cuddle. THAT makes up for Almost everything ELSE.

Congratulations to all! Alexis is a perfectly gorgeous baby! A little pink angel! God bless her!
And God bless dear Jade! What was
that doctor thinking??? We're praying
she'll be feeling better soon.
Fatigue and stress! Nothing like them
for making ones stomach go into
spasms. Hope you aren't getting
some sort of flu as well. Lots of tea to rehydrate you and sound sleep
with your mind at rest will hopefully
help. Lots of love to all of you from all of us.
