Yes I am behind

On January 25 our little girl came. I was off to the doctor and for my 37 week appointment after i passed my kidney stones when the doctor noticed my blood pressure was up. So he sent me to the hospital to get monitored and then to run some tests. After four hours sitting in the hospital waiting for the results the nurse came in to tell me that the doctor had decided that I would be staying the night in the hospital and then they were going to deliver the baby the next morning due to pre-eclampsia which I had with Bryce also. So I only had time to go home get Derrick and and pack a bag. I didn't even get to say goodbye to Bryce because he was down for a nap. Meanwhile my mom was taking my oldest sister to the doctor because she dislocated her knee while skiing with her kids. I spent the night in the hospital and then early in the morning Amy Hopkins was born 6lbs 11oz 20in. She did great. Me on the other hand was very sick from the drugs. Shannon was leaving with her family back up to Idaho and wanted to come see the baby but they had to come in the morning so while I was throwing up everything my family was coming in to see our new baby. I appreciated that they came and I eventually got a little better but it was an interesting 24 hours.
