I'm so glad everything is fine now Chocolatepeanut! Sounds like a stressful c-section - hope you recover soon.

blueshoes · 07/12/2007 08:38

Sounds like a cast of thousands attended at your cs. Sorry it was more complicated than expected, I hope you have a speedy recovery! And continue to admire and drink in the essence of baby Joe ...
