The newest love in my life

This is my great granddaughter, Seleha Grace.  She weighed in at 5 lbs 11 oz and is 18 inches long (size of a baby doll) and she is such a blessing.  We have been so worried about her during this pregnancy and my granddaughter has had to go for ultrasounds two times a week because they did not thing the baby was growing as she should and the Friday before being born they told us she only weighed 4 lbs 8 ounces, so she surprised everyone. Her Mom had a rough delivery, or a scary one for us, about 5 minutes after the epidural was put in she started having problems with her blood pressure dropping dangerously low and had to be given Epinephrine and Seleha's heart rate going up to 214 and was rushed for an emergency c-section. The only reason she had the epidural was because her doctor convinced her to do it in case they had to do a c-section because of the baby but we never thought it would be because of her! Mom and little one are both doing great now even though Seleha has lost down to 4 lbs 1 oz when she was 5 days old.


  1. A miracle baby, Lenoria! Congratulations on the new arrival, and may she grow up healthy and strong. She is adorable!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the virtual tour of our garden.
