Zena's Birthday!

5 years ago today Zena (pronouced with an ny sound) was born.  Her birth was outstanding or maybe sitting in this case. I entered the hospital with contractions and the nurse checked me and told me that I had to wait an hour until I could come back and only if the contractions were close together. So I decided to go walk but as soon as I got up I began to feel a very strong contraction and I knew that it would only be 30 minutes until that baby was born. We told the people in the office and they told me I had to have these close contractions for 1 hour before I could come back. So we decided to go down to my doctor's office since they wouldn't take me back at the desk. WE got back to the doctor's office and I was dying in pain about then, screaming my head off and bending with each contraction, but it was to no avail. At the doctor's office my doctor wasn't in so the other doctor came out and tried to sooth my Mom and Husband by telling them basically that it was going to be alright and in an hour they could take me back up. Mean while I was screaming in pain and that baby was coming! I was in the hall (I should have made my husband take me in the waiting room) I couldn't make it into the waiting room because I was in so much pain. The little old ladies down the hall in the office area heard me and came out to the rescue they waited as long as they could and finally listened to us and go a wheel chair and took me to the elevator which was a long ways away down a LONG hall. I souldn't even sit down so they brought me a pillow ans off we went. We made it into the elevator and then a wonderful scarry thing happened......I told my husband Lonnie this baby is coming NOW! I lifted myself up off the chair a but and VOILA Zena was born! Right into her Daddy's arms. Then the elevator doors opened to the baby floor and my huband said, REAL LOUD and CLEAR, BABY's HERE!!! I was so upset and tired and embarred that I was a mess and everyone was looking from everywhere! But I was also very happy at the same time that my little girl Zena was born and seemed to be healthy although Doctor Lonnie had to take the umbilical cord off her neck when she was born. What a day and I waen't through with all of the drama yet. Right after that they took me to a room FINALLY and then I started hemoraging. I lost a lot of blood and the doctor on duty that wouldn't let me go up was soooo sweet to come by and keep me from dying. WEll that being told I'm glad its over and I can enjoy a beautiful 5 year old girl named ZENA pronouced like the flower zinnia.
I Love You Zena!




Zena is a very sweet girl. She loves spending time with her Mom drawing pictures and giving them to me.  She also likes to make things pretty with blankets. Her art is very colorful and her face lights up a room when she smiles. Zena enjoys brushing her hair and making up her own styles. She enjoys a good baby doll and loves to play with her brothers and sisters. Her favorite color is pink and she thinks her Daddy is silly and crazy. I will always treasure my special gift from that really bad day! She was worth it all!
