At 1:29 pm Baby Larva was born by C-section. She weighs 5 1/2 pounds, is 17 inches long, and is very healthy.

The one issue we were worried about was a possible blocked bowel. Her x-rays indicate that she should be okay, but I've nursed her and now she is going to spend 2 hours in the NICU to confirm.

The C-section was only a bit scary, I have to give credit to my anesthesiologist who was a total hoot and a half. He kept my mind off of much of the tugging and pulling going on in my innards. :D

Pictures will follow as soon as I get a USB cord (and I can take the stupid heart monitor off of my right index finger).

Thank you for all your prayers!
