Victory over hyperemisis!! Grandbaby's here.

Not many people look this good when they've just given birth. Ara and hubby looking very pleased. I should think so too bc this was no easy pregnancy. 2 weeks into the pregnancy Ara came down from scotland to be with me bc I had lost my mum(her grandma). Suddenly she went went from normal to experiencing severe sickness. I had no idea what hyperemesis was..but I soon found out. Then began the many visits to hospital. Infact on the day I flew to Ghana, she was flat on her back living in our lounge with bucket lemony water blankets etc around her. I had to go and bury my mum, so I had no choice but to leave her. She went to stay with my friend Eni, until I returned. Her husband drove down to take her back to scotland. His job means that he's away a lot and this was the difficulty and delay in taking her back up there. But we comitted everything to God. This has been one challenging incredible journey. I've lost count of how many times she had to go to hospital and have drips injections and the like. What I do know is the faithfullness of God. I prayed like never before. Visited them in scotland and spent countless hours on the phone, encouraging, praying and listening. (Thank you Lebara for all the free calls and texts!!) Finally, last night she told me she was getting some cramps. She timed them 8 minutes apart..then 5 minutes. I told her to call the hospital. At midnight they told her to stay home till the next day. Now this is where I said,'this is it. It's began. Get ready to go in. Don't wait too long My labours are quick and yours will be too'. So she went in at 3.a.m and Myckah arrived at
I do apologise-There's something wrong with uploading the picture so I shall try to add them later.

Yaaay!! Praise God, praise God, praise God! My grandchild is here! Lots and lots of love and hugs to the new Mum, Dad and grandfolks. I wish Manteh had been here to see this.
Hope to catch up with you all soon.
Lots of love,

Seiwa, Ara and I were just talking about Manteh and how she would have been sooo pleased. But I know she knows about Mykah. Infact, she prob knew her before we did! Aparently all our loved ones who've passed on go to the 'portal' to view events such as births marriages etc.

What a lovely, comforting thought. That makes me feel so much better. How's the new Mum doing? Are you going up to see them?

Hi Mau, loc extensions are a MAJOR investment in terms of both time and money. The only person I know is my daughter who's coming down next week to stay for a month. Otherwise, you should try loc/natural hair salons. Where are you located?
