    Yesterday was the first day of spring, about 50 degrees, the sun was shining, birds singing, tulips were blooming and beautiful pansies made happy little faces outside the hospital when baby Jackson arrived.

    My daughter who's had all the heart problems passed out Thursday A.M. and was rushed to the hospital. I was at school when I got the call, needless to say I felt like Henny Penny running around because my sky was a-falling! The music teacher across the hall came to my rescue, as well as an aide, and a secretary across the hall. They pushed me out of the room where I then rushed like crazy to get to the hospital to wait 21 hours for Jackson to arrive.

    He made it beautifully, daughter made it wonderfully, and it was the very best first day of spring in my life.

    I have been soooo worried. I just couldn't help it. While we were at the hospital and it was 2:00 A.M., 3:00 A.M., 4:00 A.M., I just prayed and prayed that everything would be alright, actually, I've just prayed as hard as I could since I found out she was pregnant. I was afraid her heart was just going to quit in the midst of it all and we'd lose both of them. I also couldn't help but think about the silly movie "Steel Magnolias" and how the mother disapproved of the pregnancy to start with, which I did, but there was nothing I could say or do or would say or do to change it.

    We were at the hospital this afternoon & I couldn't help but cry and thank God for such a beautiful new start for all of them. Her poor hubby has really been a trouper through it all, and it hasn't been easy. We've been in and out of the hospital at least 10 times in the past 4 years.

    Thank you all so much for caring!!!!

    She's doing great, she's worn out from a very difficult and long delivery, but she's never been happier in her life. We thought she'd never have a baby. Her last heart procedure actually worked, after having had four we had our doubts but the test of delivery has proved she's healed. We're sending pictures of the three of them, hubby, baby, and mom, to her cardiologist in Oklahoma City. She, the cardiologist, actually invented a new procedure for her heart and is now teaching it to others.

    As teachers, doctors, and other service professionals we forget the impact we have on others, we can change lives and we can make a difference in the quality of someone's life.

    Jackson is our little miracle baby and he's beautiful! It's still a real emotional ordeal for all of us. I'm almost always in tears when I look at him.

    I am so happy that all are doing well. Isn't Jackson the name of the little boy in Steel Magnolias?

    Yes, it was his name. I realized it after they'd picked it out and I really felt creepy about the whole ordeal while she was pregnant. I never mentioned it to her though. I think her husband had a great grandfather named Jackson.

    The possibility of having grandchildren is the ONLY thing stopping me from killing my teenagers and early 20 year old now. :lol:

    I love that name, it sounds so dignified. I hope your family is enjoying your new addition.
