We got a pregnant on a clear blue digital test. We are so excited and feel very blessed.

Nov 2011

My husband and I rented a car and drove to Mc Allen Texas since it is only about 8 1/2 hrs from our house. We arrived in Mc Allen September 30,2011 and was picked up by Armin and taken to Rio Bravo. We arrived in Rio Bravo around 1:30 pm and was taken to room #1. The nurse came in and gave me hospital gown and started the IV. My surgery was scheduled for 8am on October 1,2011, but since we arrived so early on September 30 we asked if it were possible to go ahead and have the surgery that day ( I did not eat anything after breakfast that day just in case). Dr. Levi came in and talked to us around 2pm, he said that we would have surgery about 7pm that night. Well at 3 pm the nurse came in and started putting booties on my feet and a cap on my head, also gave scrubs to my husband, we were headed to surgery (at 3 not 7 I was shocked). Anyway as soon as they got me to the operating room I remember them turning me on my side to do the epidural and that's all until I woke up. I think that they were finishing up the stitches and wrapping my stomach. I do know that my surgery did not take very long I think my husband said maybe 45 min ( he took lots of pictures).

We were able to leave the hospital on Saturday morning at 11am. The only problem that I had was a spinal headache from the epidural that lasted for 7 days. My incision was completely sealed by the time I could get out of bed from the spinal headache. I am very happy with my decision to go to Rio Bravo. The one thing that I would suggest is a Spanish English dictionary or take someone who knows Spanish it was very hard not being able to communicate with the nurse. It has been 7 weeks since my surgery and I feel great, definitely recommend Rio Bravo.
