Elisha Enrique Ramirez Has Arrived
Hello family and friends. After our last post Enrique and I linked hands and prayed that I would speed up, I mean I prayed hard!!! From 8:45 this morning when they broke my water till my 5:30 check up I stayed at an almost 3cm. After our hard prayer I was checked at 9pm I told the nurse PLEASE tell me I am at least 5cm, she looked up and said "no honey you are at 9cm almost 10cm" I bout fell out of the bed. We started to pray again. Soon as the doctor arrived I started pushing. I pushed for about I pushed through about 5 contractions at least 3 pushes per contraction. I pushed as hard as I could for as long as I could. Elisha Enrique Ramirez arrived on this Earth with a strong heartbeat, however he did not take a single breath. He arrived at 9:47pm and and was prounouced an angel at 10:30pm when his heart stopped beating. We have held him and loved him so much. He has black hair all around his opening on top of his head. He is absolutely perfect. He has the most precious features. When he was born all I coulkd do was praise God over and over again. When the nurse told me I was at 10cm, I thought I was going to freak, but I was at total peace, even through delivery, and I have everyone to thank for that. He has 10 perfect fingers and toes, fingernails, eyelashes, and the cutest but you every saw! After he passed he did poo poo so I did get to wipe his lil precious hiney. Enrique has not left my side, as I am typing this now he is holding Elisha. Elisha was 4lbs 5.2oz and 17 inches long. I will write more in the morning, I am EXTREMELY exhausted and want to snuggle with our angel tonight. In the morning we will bath him, dress him and say goodbye when the funeral director comes, and that will truly be the hardest part. Please continue your prayers for continued strength. GOD BLESS you all for sticking behind us and supporting us. I will post again in the morning.
