It’s been a tough week but things are so much better and I’m finally catching up on my sleep.
This is why…
Her mom and dad named her long before she was born, telling me that we would call her “Sunny” or “Maddy” depending on her disposition. So far she’s a Sunny! I know that can change, but if she’s anything like her Gemini momma she’ll be some of both.
My daughter had a hard time being pregnant. The baby and pregnancy itself went pretty much without a hitch, but my daughter’s body seemed to rebel. She had some serious complications which may have led to the baby being born three weeks early, putting her in intensive care, apart from her baby and giving me one hell of a scare.
My daughter and my grand-daughter were born in the same hospital. Really, it just has the same name, it is completely different now. Some aspects of it are so much better than they were, but in other ways it almost seems more backward than before. Don’t get me wrong, when I told them all those years ago that I wanted to nurse my daughter they sent a male nurse in to show me show to breasfeed. The lactation consultants now are truly wonderful.
Now they have what they call the “Women’s Health Center” and it is pretty much seperate from the rest of the hospital. The only problem with that is they really only focus on childbrith issues and a woman’s health is so much more than that.
We’re all home now and things are getting better every day, but I have big issues with what went on with my daughter and the care that she received, didn’t receive, or received at the last minute.
I haven’t been at the computer much and haven’t written to everyone who sent us well wishes and congratulations but I wanted to say thank you so much and to share our little Sunny with you all.
