Home Sweet Home



We are finally home with our little 5 day-old sweetheart and we could not be happier to be here. The staff at Rex Hospital was simply amazing and they took wonderful care of all three of us-- never the less we are so happy to be here in our own little home, as we try to adapt to our brand new life. Things are going well so far-- tonight is our first night-- so we will let you know how it goes! My mom will be staying with us for a few more days and it's such a blessing to have her nearby in this time of adjustment. Tonight, she and Lance's mom cooked us a wonderful home-cooked meal of pot roast and veggies, creamed peas, squash casserole and homemade biscuits-- WOW! It was such a welcome change from all the various non-home cooked meals we have had over the last few days and we are so grateful to them for being here for us!
For those of you who don't know, having Lucy this past Tuesday was a bit of a shock for us! We went to our 39 week Dr's Appt. and discovered that my blood pressure had sky-rocketed and that I was displaying signs of pre eclampsia. Our Dr. decided it was best to go ahead and take Little Lu by C-section, because she was showing no signs of coming on her own. So-- a few hours later, we found ourselves with our little one very quickly on the way!! The Lord watched over us and baby was born at 9:19pm with no problems or complications. Lucy Marie Stuckey weighed 6 lbs. 11 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches long! We stayed at Rex a couple of extra days due to my continued blood pressure issues and thankfully those seem to be getting better. Please continue to pray for us as we get into a good routine and more importantly that we will contiuously praise the Lord for this great and wonderful gift He has given us--(even when we are exhausted in the days to come!) Thank you!

**UPDATE**
Clearly I knew what was shortly ahead of us even as I wrote this post yesterday-- our first night at home was a rough one to be sure. We both got about an hour and half of sleep last night. WOW. We know it will get better-- and we KNOW it's well worth it to finally have our girl safely at home.

I was wondering if she was a C-section delivery because she has such a nice round head! My niece was a C-section delivery and she had a very nice round head! And my sister swore that my niece had a better disposition because she was a C-Section delivery. :) Congratulations! I am praying for all three of you!

We had a Csection too. :) Hard recovery at first, but it was great and quick when Story came out.
You look great and Lu is a cutie!

Wow! We wondered what happened for her to arrive so quickly! Thankful that they caught your high blood pressure in time and that you and Lucy are well. Praying that God will give you all 3 rest in the coming days!!
