A few hours after my last post, my daughter, Nikki, went into labor to have her first baby. WELL...it was certainly an ordeal! God was certainly with her as one thing after another happened. Long story short, she had to have a C-section. I was able to be in the surgery room (at the foot of the table) along with her husband, Sam, at her head. Nikki had to be put to sleep right after surgery started, because she was "feeling" the surgery. Then, the baby's head was stuck in the birth canal. The doctor worked so hard to get it out...it seemed like 5 minutes, but it was probably less than 2 minutes. It was so scary because all I could see was my daughter bleeding everywhere, while he's working to get the baby out. When the baby was born, it looked lifeless, as the nurses rushed to the baby, they told us that we had to leave the room. We just cried out to GOD as we waited. HE IS FAITHFUL!!! After about 5 minutes, they said we could go back in and we heard and saw a beautiful baby girl!! Delight Nicole Pier, 7 lbs 5 oz. She is gorgeous! Nikki had to be in ICU due to blood loss, but she is doing great now. They are home and all I can do is PRAISE GOD for His mighty hand in all of it.
Tomorrow is Sonel's birthday, so we will have a fun day making his cake and decorating it. I will have pictures and maybe a video. He is excited about blowing out his candles. He has experienced 3 birthday's for others, while here, so he knows about the candle blowing!
