  • Please pass on to Melanie—I read her posting and loved it!  I am not registered to post and am in a hurry, so . . .

    Well put, Melanie!  Honest and yet optimistic.  So happy that your parents are with you to enable you to rest and heal from surgery.  When I had my hysterectomy, I watched the young mothers as they shuffled to the nursery to look at their babies pushing their IV poles.  Granted, I was in my 50’s but I thought, “How can they go home and take care of a baby if they feel like I do?”

    So, hat’s off to you for being able to put your experience in God’s light and to turn to Him for stability in the rocky beginning that it is for every new parent.

    I think that that is what the posters on Dom’s site were trying to hint at when they said, “You aren’t ready.”

    No one can be ready for the intensity of the exhilaration, love, anxiety (sometimes terror) and sheer fatigue of the whole experience of giving birth and going home with a newborn.

    Soon you will be able to move without pain, the nursing will smooth out, and you will not be able to remember a time without Isabella.

    God bless you all!
