Today, I have so much to be thankful for. This year has been “The year of years” and everything, both good and bad, that has led me to where I am today, I am so grateful and thankful for.
Yesterday morning, as I was getting ready for work at 6am, I heard my phone ding as I was fixing my hair in the bathroom. I was wondering who was texting me so early, so I rushed over to check who it was.
“Ya tu hermana rompió agua. Nos vamos para el hospital!”
Your sisters water broke. Here going to the hospital!!! My mother was sending periodic updates. Every few minutes for the next hour I was getting updates. “Contractions 5 minutes apart” “Contractions 3 minutes apart!” “The baby will be here any minute!” “SHE’S HERE!!!!!” “Ya llegó!”
I asked for pictures but they couldn’t get us any initially because the baby was born with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck. They had to cut the cord before her shoulders were even out! My mom and sister say she was soooo blue. Purple! They called for other doctors and one tended to the baby as one tended to my sister. Ultimately, everything ended up fine! Jezenia (Jess-enya) was born at 7:20am on Wednesday November 26th. Welcome to the world baby girl!
