Sadie Mckal Madsen Has Arrived!!!!!!!

I am so sorry for not updating everyone sooner. I've been pretty busy if your not surprised.
Well let me start by telling you how everything went. We went to the hospital Sunday night to do a seaweed panel to help start me, that was a long night. At about 7:30am they came in and gave me my epidural (I'm not sure I spelled that right) anyway it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Then at 8:00am my doctor came in and broke my water by 12:00 I was dilated to a 5 without any potassium and we all thought we would have a baby in the next few hours. But we were all wrong, from that moment on I was a wreck my epidural kept wearing off and it wasn't strong enough so they would come in every 3 hour and give me a higher dose. She kept dropping but no progress. My doctor came in at 5:00pm and said I felt swollen and that he was afraid I might have to have a C-Section, He left the room and I feel apart, they said they would try everything to prevent a C-Section so the night began, I was so tired and worried. They started me on the potassium and I was on Oxygen for Sadie. But still no progress. So at 10:00pm my doctor called and said he was on his way in for a C-Section when they wheeled me out I lost it I did not want to have surgery, I was terrified!!!!!! We welcomed Sadie into this world at 10:44pm 7 pounds 4 ounces and 20 inches long. She was beautiful!!! Josh was so strong for me the whole day after 14 hours of labor and then the C-Section I am so thankful to have him in my life. He was my rock and sat by my side the whole time. I don't think I would have been able to go through it without him. I love you babe!!!
