Harper Emerson Hale

This is long overdue but I’m finally getting a chance to
write again. Harper Emerson Hale arrived, like all of my other children, off
schedule on March 5 at 8:13pm. She weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces and came into this
world with a healthy scream. To make a very long story short, I had
hypertension and had to deliver early. The hypertension continued post partum
and I had the pleasure of a magnesium drip for 24 hours post-op. Things are
better now. My BP is under control thanks to some medication and I’ve spent the
last 2.5 weeks with a great deal of help from my family and friends. Thank you
Mom, Dad, Papa Dale and Grandma Mary and all of my friends who brought and
continue to bring meals. What a great help you’ve all been!

Here’s a little snapshot of Harper Emerson:
