Liam Issac, and Melissa

He’s a boy. But things got rough.

Yes, it was a C-section, and a difficult one. We were both without sleep for about 30 hours so I was on the frayed edge but she was worse off. After 24 hours of labour Liam still hadn’t descended into the pelvis. They were both exhausted from trying so the call was made to C-section him out.

I don’t know what to say right now but that Melissa and Liam will be at the hospital for a few days yet so she won’t be posting any time soon. I am still wiped out but travelling back and forth from home to hospital and spending most of my time there. Luckily the hopsital is only 10 minutes away so I’m coming home to eat, shower and catch a few Z’s.

I do have first pictures so I will post them here now, 2 to a post so they are easier viewed.
