All three events took place on Jan 26th:
The Good: I have a baby and she is adorable. Giving birth was the hardest thing I have EVER done but it is so worth it. I love her so much and it is so much easier with her on the outside. I can put on my own socks. She has been attacked by family members and I have barely been able to hold her but I am so in love.
The Bad: My cat, Scout, was hit and killed by a car while I was in labor. I miss her very much and her death really puts this day into a tail spin. I was so excited to introduce the baby to all of my animals, especially Scout (Since Scout had adopted the nursery as her own) and I get a little weepy imagining how it would have gone. Some of that is probably hormones though. She was our only cat and I miss having a cat around. I would adopt another but I am scared it will happen again.
The Ugly: My mom had major surgery that went very well but it was hard not to have her with me in the delivery room. We had tried to arrange to have her surgery on a later date but her doctor had to reschedule. In the end it was for the best that she had her surgery earlier, because she really needed it and there were a few surprises that confirmed this. She is doing much better now and having the new little one seems to have sped her recovery.
