Yay! I’m a grandma of two granddaughters now!
I planned to go to Portland, Oregon early last week to be with my daughter Mercy when she delivers her second daughter. I also wanted to help with watching the two-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter. Because of the coronavirus, Mercy and I decided it’s for the safety of me and the little ones that I postpone my trip. So, I stayed and prayed for them.
On Sunday, Mercy went to the hospital at 5:00 a.m. with 7cm dilation. She video called me at 9:00 am before taking a nap. Baby Nora was born at 12:30 p.m. weighted 6 lbs. 7 oz. Her husband Will sent me a couple photos right after the baby was born. Mercy video called me around 1:00 p.m.
The doctor discharged her on Tuesday afternoon, even though the baby didn’t eat too much and didn’t have too many pees and poos yet. Because of the Coronavirus, the doctor sent her home with distant support. She called me again yesterday when she was feeding the baby. They’re very happy.
Again, I learned to trust God even though I worried about Mercy and the care of Autumn. Their friends in the neighborhood watched Autumn when Mercy went into labor. Because of the Coronavirus, Will is working at home. He started taking paternity leaves. After they get on a routine, he still can work at home. It’s so good to have him working at home in times like this.
