The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

What a difference 25 days makes. Lyric had some serious birth issues and was rushed to Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi about an hour and a half after birth. Samantha wasn't doing too well, either, and had an extended stay in the Christus Spohn Hospital in Beeville. Andrew had to stay with Sam that night, and finish paperwork on the both of them, before heading to Driscoll first thing the next morning. Their car developed issues in the midst of all this, so I had to drive him to Corpus that next morning - he went home the next day and got their car taken care of. Lyric was hooked up to all sorts of wires and machines, with needles in her feet, hands and head. She had to stay there quite a while, but is home now and so far, so good. Things are looking well, although Andrew and Sam have to watch closely for any signs of even the slightest problem developing, and get her to the ER immediately should any fever or anything develop. But everything appears to be fine for now. We have babysat twice - once was overnight. Lyric has her days and nights mixed up, so that was quite an experience. She is beautiful with very dark wavy hair, with an auburn cast to it in the light. Her eyes are blue, and she has a dimple in her chin and on one cheek. Andrew and Samantha are loving parenthood despite the sleep deprivation.

I sent a comment earlier, but it's not here now ??? Anyway, I'll repeat how pretty she is and glad you finally posted an updated photo. Proud Grandma and Grandpa, for sure.
