We are so excited and grateful to the Lord for the arrival of Zane Emory!
After heading toward the hospital Sunday night around 11, contractions let up and we turned around and came home, grabbing a few hours of sleep and then heading back around 3:30 am. (Deciding when to go was tortuous for me this time because of my last crazy birth adventure.)
The delivery went very well and he was born at 9:30 am, Monday morning. Zane means “God is gracious” and He certainly is. Emory means “brave” and we pray he’ll be!
Everyone is enjoying this cutie pie and I appreciate all the prayers that have gone up on our behalf. My iron levels had gotten really low and as of my blood work during labor, they had gone up 10 points. So I’m already feeling better than I have in a while.
And I have to say, at the age of 43, after giving birth to 11 children, one of the best compliments I’ve received was from my doctor yesterday who told my husband I had a beautiful uterus. I’ll take it.
