Raelyn is here!

So, Sept 21, 2010 Casey had contraction all day, but didn't think anything of it. Casey calls me at work asking what she should do. I told her she is not suppose to go into labor. Casey still didn't think she was in labor. I told her to call her Dr. and see what he says, She finally went to the hospital at 5 pm. Casey has been in labor for 3 days. Raelyn was born c-section at 8:30 pm. 6 lbs 9 oz 19 3/4 inches long. Chris and I were able to go into the OR.  This was a wonderful experience to see Raelyn born. Papa was able to stay home and take care of Harley. She was in heaven with her Papa. Momma and baby are home now. Casey is still recovering and Raelyn needs to gain some weight. Dr. said she is losing weight. All she wants to do is sleep right now She is 3 weeks early.
Everyone else is good. Chris should be on his way home now.  Should not be long now.

End of Sept. update

Chris is still out to sea. He was able to call a couple of times, so good to know he is doing good.  He did need some medical advice. Chris had an abscess and needed an I & D (incision & drainage) and some antibiotics.  He will be fine some follow up. Chris will get checked out when he gets back to Guam. Karla and Chris got a red nose pit bull.  A Mitzi look a like but male. His name is Sarge and he is so cute. Chris will meet him soon. He picked him out by emails. Karla is doing well, she got a job at the Vet where she was taking Sarge for medical reason.  He did come from a shelter and needed rescuing. Everything always seems to work out the way it is suppose too.
Casey is due any day now. Raelyn is in position and having irregular contraction. C-section is scheduled for Oct 8. My bet she comes before Oct 1. Harley is still swimming every week and loves it. I think she is ready to be a big sister. Everyone is talking about this baby that doesn't exist yet to her.
Steve is waiting for the weather to cool so he can ride his sports bike. We have both changed our eating habit and kept the weight off.  We have decided to go to Guam for Christmas and New Years.  This will be a good time to see where the kids live. Wish we can take everyone, but the newborn will not be able to go so young.
Well that is it until the baby is born !!!!

Just got word Casey's C-section has just been moved up to Oct. 1 at 2:30 PM Dr. said she wont make it to the 8th Will keep posted

Nothing to new~

Update: Casey was given a ice cream party for baby Raelyn. We had fun. Casey got some stuff for the baby. Raelyn is 35 weeks now. She is in position and ready to come into our world.  Nana and Papa took Harley to the mountains for the weekend. We had such a good time with Harley.  She enjoyed no parents, just her Nana and Papa. She loves to ride the ATV. She thinks the blue one is hers and the yellow one is Papa's.. She is at a good age now that we can take her places without her parents.
Missing Chris and Karla. They are so far away. Planning a trip to Guam in Dec. beginning of Jan. Would love to see there Island. Steve is enjoying the weather and riding his sports bike. Me I have been working hard on my diet and lost 28 lb now. I can run with no pain and enjoying it again. Hope to do another half marathon soon. Well until later
