No longer pregnant...

 Monday morning I went in for a scheduled c-section.  Elizabeth Jo was born at 8:28 t at 7lbs 4oz.  The surgery went well, I had a lot of scar tissue and tons of problems from my previous c-sections (thank you military doctors).  But my doc cut out as much of the scar tissue as he could.  I was actually able to bend over the next day!  I couldn't do that for about 3 weeks after having my boys!  Anyway, Elizabeth is a healthy little sweetheart and taken wonderfully to nursing.  Apperantly it only took 3 kids to get it right.  We had a little bump in the road for a bit.  Elizabeth was jaundice and the sun wasn't helping any.  She had to go on phototherapy and it was just heartbreaking.  It killed me to see her laying in that suitcase looking think with the lights and not being able to hold or cuddle her.  But she got taken off the therapy yesterday!  And I continued to nurse without supplementing the whole time!  She's doing wonderful and was already back up to birthweight yesterday (at only 5 days old).
