May 2, 2012 At the hospital

Phoebe Elaine surprised us with an early arrival on April 23, 2012!  After a quick and easy delivery, I suffered some complications.  It was a wild ride, but it’s been a great reminder as to how precious life is.  I thank God for his blessings and provision, and I thank my doctors and nurses for their quick action and hard work.  I also thank all our friends and neighbors for their love and support.

I’m a broken record when it comes to newborn posts.  I always say “life is precious.”  But it’s true!  There’s always a moving story behind a baby’s birth.  It’s always remarkable and special.  Nothing is predictable or certain, and with each baby I meet and each story I hear, I am moved by the miracle.

Here are some images of our hospital stay from immediately following the birth to the day we went home.
