Sorry for such a long delay in posting. As you might imagine, it has been crazy the past few days. We arrived home on Saturday, but that night I developed a "spinal headache." It is a complication from my first spinal tap during the c-section. I was in so much pain and had to go back to the hospital on Sunday morning. The cure for a spinal headache is another spinal tap and what they call a "blood patch." They took blood and put it in my spine and the headache was gone! I'm so thankful to be feeling better and also to my friend, Megan, for taking care of me that day. Other than the headache, I have been trying to figure out how to be a mom to twins. My mother has been here for the past few days. It was great to have her help and input -- Billy and I are both so grateful. Tonight is our first night alone, so wish us luck!
This afternoon Henley and Davis took their first bath and I wanted to share the pictures with you. They are beyond precious and we are having SO much fun. I just STILL can't believe I am so lucky! I find myself thanking God so many times a day for such an immense gift.
Also, I just wanted to update you on a friend of mine who had IVF in Maryland with Dr. Levy. I requested prayer from all of you a couple of weeks ago as she underwent the process. I'm SO happy to announce she is pregnant! Please keep her in your prayers as she awaits the milestones and news of the days to come.
One last note, I know I'm jumping around but there are just so many things to share. When I was in the hospital, the phone rang and the number was unknown but had a (301) area code. I remember this being the area code of Dr. Levy's office in Maryland, so I answered. It was sweet Dr. Levy himself! The day I gave birth, my elated mother had emailed the only contact person she had in her phone -- the financial planner in Maryland. She thought her email would probably never reach Dr. Levy, but we were just SO grateful for the gifts we had been given at that moment. He was on all of our minds. Well, the financial planner gave him the email, he looked up my number and called to personally congratulate all of us! He is just a precious man. Thank you again Dr. Levy.
