Blaine Roughton (pronounced Rou-tuhn) arrived via repeat c-section on Tuesday morning, July 24th. He weighed 7 lbs, 12 oz and was 19 inches long. He has a cute mohawk of soft brown hair and blue eyes. He is a good eater and even sleeps for us some. The recovery has been rough, because the anesthesiologist punctured the dura layer of my back during the spinal epidural, which resulted in me not getting an epidural, and very debilitating spinal headaches the past 1.5 weeks. I returned to the hospital yesterday for a blood patch, and luckily the procedure worked, and I am now feeling more like myself again! I'm glad that my health has returned and that I am able to begin bonding with Blaine more fully, instead of just lying in bed with a bad headache! Congrats to all the new moms, and good luck to the moms who are still pregnant!
