My kids are adorable
So, first some background. The week before Ross was born was pretty stressful. We had to put our cat Emerson down (his kidneys were shutting down) and that made everyone really sad. Also, [ profile] gwangi had a really bad cold. Through the week, I missed two days of work because I had a cold/sinus infection and Zach missed 1.5 because of his cold/cough/whatever. On Thursday, at my weekly checkup, the doctor asked if he was tested for pertussis, and all night long we couldn't think of anything other than "what if he has it and I go into labor, would they even let him on the floor?". On Friday, he woke up and realized he injured his rib coughing, so he went to the doctor to get tested for pertussis and asked to be started on the treatment for it without the results because I was so close to term with the baby. He also got cough syrup with codeine in it, which we decided he would test out that night because I didn't think I would go into labor and we wanted to know how badly it would effect him.

Long birth story )

So, in the end, I had a baby, which is all that really matters.

We had a baby! Yay!

James Ross Buchan, Ross to his friends, was born 2/20/2016 at 3:30 pm. He was 9lbs 12 oz.

The birth was tough and I'll write that up later. I did end up with a c-section and that had complications.

I am happy he is here and he is awesome but right now I am feeling really fragile and unsettled. It is a weird place to be at right now and I wish I could just process this and move on. Because Ross is amazing.
