Update From the Home Front

Hey everyone - I do live! Thank you for all of the prayers and encouragement this week. It is all needed! We are enjoying our time at home now as a little family of five. Fiona is lovely and sweet. She is feeding well and getting me up for snacks every couple of hours. Trinity and Connor have warmed up to the new lifestyle very well and enjoy laughing at all of their little sister's funny faces. It is great having Allan home; I already dread his return to work after next week. As for me? Emotionally I am doing well, just enjoying life as it comes minute by minute. Someday Allan and I will need to process the frightening birth experience we endured, but that needs to be held off for now. The physical recovery process feels s-l-o-w (has it really only been four days??). The internal bruising will take a bit to heal up; we are thankful, though, that we will easily recover from all the trauma!

Need to keep this short. Trinity & Connor are running in and out - catching spiders and bringing them to show me. Allan's getting dinner on the table, and Fiona is beginning to stir on the couch next to me. Stay tuned!...

She is adorable. I am sad to say that we bought her a gift (diapers) and completely forgot to give it to you today. I'm sure the next time we visit she'll be out of size 1!! Oh this darn pregnancy brain!

blessings and rest for you. I'm so glad allen gets to be home with you guys for a while, though it never seems long enough.

Kristi and family,
Blessings on the birth of Fiona and the miracle of her birth. I'm with Steve. . . I brag on you to everyone I speak with. I'm glad she is here and really did it right, waiting for the doc and making her way into the world the hard way. Hopefully we will see you all in the near future.
Praying for continued blessings,
Linda McDonald
