Day 1: Sunday Happy Mother’s day!! The hospital is in a buzz and I hear it every time my door opens, from all my nurses and doctors. I’m stuck recovering in bed during Mother’s Day but getting to know Zienne overshadows any pain. I only feel pain when I get up, and I’m still very bloated. Had to take couple motrins. We have tons of visitors today, my family (including Kris who came across from Cali), some friends from church, and Michelle & Mel. It was definitely a busy day. I was able to make web announcements for our family and friends. I have to really thank my husband though who completely doted on me and all my needs. Day 2: Monday Last day at the hospital. Got to shower, get dressed, take care of concluding instructions for myself and Zi. With great slight windy warm weather welcoming Zi outside, we were homeward bound, finally. Thankful my parents stayed with us, cooking and taking care of Emma while I rested and was recovering. Since I couldn’t walk around too much, Perze really took great care of Zi. He did the same thing w/ Emma; he’s a wonderful husband and father. […]
Pre-labor I experienced mild contractions the night before, thinking they were mere Braxton Hicks, so I went to sleep, only to wake up to my water breaking. I woke up Perze, who quickly acted, worried we wouldn’t make it to the hospital on time. Usually, I’m the one to calm him down, and we were able to get Em ready, call my OB, pack the last minute items, contact my family, and get to the hospital. Perze initially called my OB, who wasn’t familiar with Perze’s voice, so once I got on the phone with him, his positive jolly attitude made me a little more comfortable not to panic. He said the baby was right on time for mother’s day…and he was right. His ending conversation went something like “Ok. I’ll meet you at the hospital and let’s have a baby. What a great present for mother’s day.” I laughed because he sounded like we were going to six flags to have a grand day. Weeks ago, we had hoped Baby Z would come out sooner, almost losing hope that Z would come out before the due date. But looking retrospectively, I couldn’t think of a better day to have […]
i miss you Ate Em.
CLICK on the BANNER!!!
May is finally here, hopefully a little sunnier than April, although its commencement seems dreary and a wee chilly. But before we move into May, just wanted to post some April notes. East to West: Like, our annual Easter Cantata. I chose a contemporary moderately difficult piece called “East to West” – a worship filled concert with songs written by today’s greatest artists, including Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, Steve Fee..etc. I have to personally say that these songs were beautiful and powerful, and I really thank the choir for persevering through the timing, the quick paced songs, and my persistence to make it what it can be. I also really thank God for sustaining me throughout my last months of pregnancy, throughout the hours of practice and hard work. I was really blessed to have seen so many guests attend, who outnumbered the attendance of SJBCI members who came. =) It was an answered prayer; I love that. Egg Hunt: There’s behbeh Sephin, Ate Em, and Hongs, all appropriately dressed for the chilly egg hunt. This was their first “independent” hunt where they had to search for the eggs themselves without any physical leading. Em was looking forward to […]
