Welcome, Karl!

So, wait, does that mean that you had to deliver the baby AND have surgery? That is f'ed up (and the absolute worst combination of events that I can imagine). I hope I'm over-interpreting here.

I was very close to being in that same situation. I'd be curious to hear exactly what sort of medical intervention they do when the placenta is retained.

But besides all that... YAY for Karl! Congratulations Nancy!

When I first read your update, I thought that you had an emergency C-section, but now I realize you most have delivered him and then had surgery. Wow!

Oh and Karl's birthday is the day after my brother's birthday...Carl. :)
