Arrival of Libbi Vanessa!!!!!

Well, the big day finally came, and thankfully went. Everything went as well as it possibly could have. Libbi came ti us very healthy, and our pediatrician told us not to anticipate any complications from here on out. Calli was a trooper, and did very well. To the surprise of many, I did very well in the O.R., and insetead of passing out, as was expected, I was all involved in the procedure and even asked Dr. Schubert if I could slap some gloves on and help out.

Please be warned that some of the pictures in the slide show are pretty graphic and gruesome, and also know that I left the really gnarly ones out! If they make you feel funny use the skip forward button on the slide show functions.

Now Calli and I understand what parents are always talking about when they refer to their children. It is a miracle of how these special things are created and we understand what it is like to really love something. This was an amazing experience, and I hope it is a long, long time before we have to do it again.

One last thing, thanks to all of our family and friends that have expressesd their concern and care. We have also become very appreciative of the medical staff that have helped us, they are very amazing people.

Enjoy!
