On Thursday morning around 5:30 I got a text from Kaci saying they were on the way to the hospital because her water broke. She was already prepared to go at any time. She was put on bed rest the week prior because she had dilated 3 cm already and was only 35 weeks. She had Finley Cate that day at around 1:45.
She was healthy and 6lbs. Kaci had a pretty easy delivery but later that night got a little sick and on into the next day. I went up there to visit her on Thursday night and watched her feed her for the first time. After visiting with Kaci, Ben, and the baby I went over and hung out with Heather for a little while. Heather was already scheduled to be induced that Friday so was there getting prepared for that. Luckily they were both at the same place, so convenient. When I left that night I had planned to come back on Friday evening with Trevor and our friends Sam and Joe to see both babies, but that didn’t work out to well. On Friday Heather was having issues progressing so ended up having a c-section around 5 that evening. I wanted to give her some time after having surgery and didn’t want to over crowd her. Kaci was still very sick and had not gotten out of bed since her epidural the day before. Every time she tried to get out of bed she would pass out or close to it. So we didn’t even go up there Friday. On Saturday morning Trevor had a tennis match then we headed up there to see everyone. Kaci was getting Finley Cate dressed and ready to go home. They were both doing very well.
After a short visit with Kaci we went around to see Heather. Ella Kate was sent to the NICU for a little while when we got there so we were unable to see her. We had fun playing with Leighton though, her big sister, that just turned one. This is a picture of Ella Kate from when she was born though…
Hopefully I will get to go visit them one day this week. Ella Kate is having to stay a few extra days so she will not be home until later in the week. She is healthy, they are just watching her a little longer. I can’t wait to meet her. Kaci and baby are both doing great.
