Hi Everybody,
Well, my c-section went well. Had trouble finding veins for IV... Oncologist said should of just used portacath..didn't even think of that...duh.. Got my port accessed though my last day there. I got released yesterday (Sun) around lunch time. My little baby boy, born 5 lbs. 12 oz, 18.5 inches, had to stay behind. He is really in good shape, he was not keeping any food down. He has finally started as of yesterday so we shall see when he can come join us. His name is Skylar Christopher. He is precious. He has more hair than me and is adorable. :-).. Just wanted to let you all know and to thank you for all your prayers and thoughts.
Love, Angel

Congratulations! I love his name. I know how hard it is to have to leave your baby behind when you leave the hospital. I had to do that with my now 16 year old VERY healthy son. We'll be sending positive thoughts and prayers and hoping Skylar is home very soon!! Diane

Angel,

I was just thinking about you and the baby and low and behold - you answered my question. It was so good to hear from you and to hear your good news. By now Skylar might be home with you. I know it was hard leaving him there in the hospital on Sunday, but he just needed a few more days. Give him a hug and a kiss from all of us.

God Bless,
Kathy

Congradulations Angel,
I am so happy for you and glad they kept him till he is eating. Gives you a little time to take care of yourself for his arrival home. Thanks for letting us know Angel we knew you could do it. I love his name and boy did you work hard for this one Angel. Now enjoy that little bundle of yours.
Love to you all,
