so I finally got to play with fiber (after going away and getting sick and all that fun stuff) and boy was it fun!  LOL  I dyed up a bunch of silk hankies that I one day hope to turn into a silk scarf, once I get a loom....  And some wool and it's just black, but it actually looks black!  I'm floored.... all the wool I've ever tried to dye black has turned out grey!  yay!

Hey ladies!!!

I'm a Me-Maw!!  My oldest DD delivered my first granddaughter 02-10-2010 at 1:11AM.  8# 11oz  20" long!!  

She called me at 2:30 PM 02-09 & I was on the highway at 3 pm for a 4 hour drive .... the roads were terrible!  over 100 vehicles in the ditch (and that was just my side of the road!!)  The trip took 6 hours ...

DD was running a fever & her BP was pretty high too when she went in to the hospital at 7PM.  She was only dialated to a 4 and was fully efaced. They pumped her full of antibiotics and at 10 pm, they put in an epidural, she was at an 8 then.

About midnight, she was at a 9.  By 12:30, she just had a partial lip left, the epi wore off and she wanted to push.  It was too late to give her more pain meds so she was on her own.

At 1:11 AM, Kristany was born ... quite a cone-head (head circumfrence was 13.5") and purple!!!  DD said later she looked like an egg plant (yes, she was that purple.  It took a couple minutes before she took her first breath and let out a tiny "mew".  A full 5 minutes before she gave her first real loud cry, and only 1 at that..  At that time, the nurse wrapped her up, let DD give her a quick kiss and off to the ICU she went.

DD's amniotic fluid has some sort of bacteria infection.  That caused DD's fever, Kristany's fever and breathing difficulties.

She's been on oxygen until this afternoon.  Right now, DD is down in the ICU nursery, holding Kristany for the first time and nursing her.  Sometime in the next day or two, Kristany will have a lumbar puncture to check for infection in her spinal fluid.

Here is a link to Kristany's first picture  http://twitpic.com/12cwhw

This little      has MeMaw wrapped around her finger already!!
