Momma is home!

Anabel Rose Sterling was born at 1:14 am on 6/22/2014.  She will be staying in NICU for several weeks due to lung issues, which will give both of us a chance to prepare the house for her - something I couldn't do during my hospital stay.
 I got to head home yesterday, much to the joy of both Monty and Harlow.  After 73 days in the hospital, I couldn't have asked for a happier reunion.  BOL - unfortunately, Aaron was so busy defending me from our furkids that we didn't get any video or pictures of the event.

We did get some after pictures, after I was safely secured on the couch and the pups could cuddle with me all they wanted.
Harlow didn't leave my side all afternoon...

Monty made sure to get some cuddle time too.
 We had a few all out battles over who got to sit on the couch next to me.  Eventually they sorted it all out...
Harlow getting some loving...

This is what I saw most of the day.

Monty, Harlow and me - good thing Harlow doesn't mind the back of the couch.

I is here too, Momma!
We would like to thank everyone for all your good wishes during this time.  We will be spending a lot of time with Anabel at the hospital and could use a little POTP for her if you could!

  20. Congratulations! I knew you would have a baby girl. I don't know if you knew the gender ahead of time, but I'm pretty good at guessing these things. I'm sending her a white light of healing and protection, and hope that she can go home soon. What a joyous reunion you had with your pups. I'm so proud of you for hanging in there at the hospital for so long.

  34. 73 days? I had no idea you were going through so much. In time you will climb out of this valley.

  35. I really wish I could find words to tell you how sorry I am for your loss.

    So, I'm not going to be an ass and just say that whichever gods you pray to... may he/she/them grant you strength and support that you need and deserve.
