You Beautiful Doll
A baby is born! Despite pregnancy-induced diabetes (now gone, thank God), nearly entering preeclampsia, soaring blood pressure, unbelievable swelling, three weeks spent in the hospital BEFORE the baby was born, and her staying in the hospital for a week after I was released, our little Brigid safely entered the world, beautiful, healthy, and adored by all and sundry. Thank God we both came through it safely, and thank God for many good family members and friends who supported us--and still do!
