We were so ready. We arrived at the hospital at 5:30 this morning. They put me in a room, took some blood, put my IV in and wheeled me down to the OR at 7:30. The anesthesiologist asked me a few questions and when I told her about the Factor V Leiden and that I took my last Lovenox injection Tuesday night, she said they would need to do a blood test to see if my blood was coagulating before she could do the spinal. Forty-five minutes later they came in and told me that my blood was still too thin and it was too dangerous to do the c-section today. So we have been rescheduled for tomorrow morning. They are keeping me at the hospital tonight to keep an eye on Ella. I am extremely disappointed and honestly, just super impatient to have Ella here in my arms. So we wait some more. I guess she really wanted her birthday to be March 18th, not the 17th. She doesn't want to share with St. Patrick. :o)
We will hopefully have some wonderful pictures to share with you tomorrow. In the meantime, pray that I get some rest (I slept NONE at all last night). I'm pretty exhausted physically and emotionally right now.
