My son

Day 23



AM Day 23 of 40 Days of Lamentations

PM Day 23 of 40 Days with Job


My son, Francisco Miguel, was born today. Another AMAZING manifestation of God’s love for us. I cannot fathom how an imperfect man and an imperfect woman can bring such a beautiful creation into the earth. And that’s where God’s love comes in. He makes it happen. How can anyone – in their right mind – stop this from happening?


Des was wheeled into the Delivery Room by 9am (April 4th). I was called by 11:00AM to go into the DR. When my eldest was born, I wasn’t allowed inside the DR. I had to wait for her to be brought out. For my second, I went inside the DR, but she was already out and so I was able to take pics with her already.


For this baby, I was brought in, and they had probably just begun the CS. WHOA. Remind me NEVER to do that again. I saw all the equipment. I could hear the conversations. AHH. Good thing I had my mask on, so the people didn’t see that I was about to pass out. Though at one point the Anesthesiologist said that I was turning pale and I needed to sit down.


I would have passed out if I actually looked at the operation. I instead spoke to Des and looked at other things during the whole time. I guess it wasn’t about the blood or guts, actually. But the DR conversation. I had all these ER / Grey’s Anatomy scenes flashing in my head, and any hint of distress, I would get nervous. Everything worked out ok.


Franko came out screaming at the top of his lungs. And after and initial check-up, I was able to carry him right away. And it was, again, a wonderful feeling. Our hearts expand with every new child brought into this world 🙂


Thank you for all your prayers. Now begins our sleepless nights once again!
