After a very brief night of sleep (about 3 hours), Elizabeth started having contractions, strong enough for us to drive to the hospital. At around 5:18 EST our second daughter Kate Maciel was born!
There were some post-partum complications and Elizabeth lost a lot of blood, but the doctors seem to have things under control now.
Nothing can prepare you for the roller coaster of emotions one goes through when witnessing the birth of your child. Little Yv is the most excited, and keeps asking me: “Daddy, when can we bring her home?”
Can you say “sleep deprived”?
