Yesterday, I went to Northside to turn in my breast pump. Yes, I am a failure. I quit pumping the first week the babies came home from the hospital. I just couldn’t do it all. At least they got 5 weeks worth of breast milk. Oh well, I digress. I took the babies with me yesterday. I wanted to show them off. I have so many wonderful friends in Labor and Delivery at the hospital. I was so excited to go and see them!! Since I had to take my pump back, it was the perfect time to take the babies. It was so much fun to see everyone. They were so amazed I was out by myself with the babies!! However, all I did was put them in the stroller and go!!
I finally got to thank some, not all, of the people who helped me through some of the hardest and happiest times of my life. I was so happy to get to finally say thank you. I am working on my birth story. You will soon see all they did for me. It was so neat to show off three healthy, happy babies!! In fact, it was fun to show off a healthy, happy mommy too!!!! Here are some of the pictures I took!!
The babies in front of the “quiet” sign!
Me and the babies with some of the most wonderful nurses in the world!
Bob was the scrub tech during my c-section. He stayed after his shift to do my case. It meant tons to me. I was so much more relaxed with him there.
Erin Wolfe with Josh! Erin brought me a season of 24 to watch.
Two of the pregnant nurses!! They each only have one baby!
Kathy Sanford is my “tough love” friend. When I was irrational, she brought me back to reality…quickly!! I am so glad she was there to bring me back to reality.
Patty Jarvis is so wonderful. She came to see me every time she worked. I am so glad she was around. She is such a dear friend to me.
Sabrina is amazed by the babies…and the stroller!!
Tina Vaughn took care of me after I got out of recovery from the c-section. She also took care of me until I went to postpartum. She was fantastic.
There are not enough wonderful words I can say about Sandy Mooney. She is wonderful. She helped organize my hospital baby shower. She came in the OR and took pictures during my c-section. She helped calm me when I was so nervous. She is so wonderful and caring.
This does not begin to show all of the people who cared for me. I am the luckiest woman in the world. In my honest opinion, if you need to have a baby (or babies) in Atlanta, have them at Northside. You will never regret this decision.
I have no idea how this became an ad for the hospital. I just wanted to share pictures of some of my dear friends and collegues. I had such a wonderful time seeing them!!
I love you all.
