Wonderful news
« on: December 28, 2014, 10:23:14 AM »
I'm very excited  ;D

Our first grandchild ( a dear, precious little girl ) was born the week before Christmas.

Our daughter, despite all her conditions listed in my signature, had a remarkably normal pregnancy, with just a few tweekings of her Thyroid medication, close monitoring of Bubs heart rate (always ok) and a few blood pressure/fluid issues in the last couple of weeks of her pregnancy.

In fact, our daughters regular blood test results were the best they'd been since she was diagnosed 7 years ago, just as her Immunologist predicted.

I hope this news gives hope to all the young SJS/Lupus sufferers out there.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all  :)

Congratulations Aussie Nan!  There's nothing like a newborn to throw a whole new and beautiful light on life :)  I'm glad this pregnancy was healthy and Mum and Babe are doing so well.

I have eight grandchildren now, but will never forget the birth of my first - also a granddaughter.  I held my (first born) daughter in my arms as she gave birth to her first child, and it was truly a life altering moment...

So glad to hear that everything went well. Now she will need lots of help so that she can rest up. Pregnancy is such a stressful thing to go through when we have autoimmune disease so to have her body  be "good" during this time was a real blessing. Irish

Joy to the World!  A baby is a wonder,a gift and a delight.  Also the end of sleep as you know it...but grandma will be there to help out.

Congratulations Aussiemum and the proud parents. I don't have any daughters but was privileged to be at the birth of my second granddaughter. She's six now and we have a wonderful bond.

Does the baby have a name?

Thanks for all the kind words.

In all my excitement I forgot to mention the delivery by emergency caesarean (oops) but all is well.

Bub is 3 weeks old now and has been very busy with family get togethers over Christmas and the New Year. They even visited us for a few days at our camping holiday at the beach - several hours from home. (They stayed at a local motel)

It was very exciting to have our 2 week old granddaughter on holidays with us... oh, and her parents too  ;D

Happy New Year to you all.
