This photo was taken just a few minutes after Avery was born. My husband was my best caretaker when Avery was born. He was by my side through my labor and c-section. Once Avery was born, he didn’t leave her side while I was in post-op. He made sure his little girl was taken care of and not alone. He was there for me the 2 days we were in the hospital and when we were released to go home. I don’t know what I would have done without him. Recovering from a c-section is much harder than I anticipated. It was hard to get out of bed, hard to get situated in a comfortable position to nurse; it was overall just hard to get around. But he was there helping me each step of the way. Not only was he there for me, he was there for Avery; making sure she was 100% happy.
Even after we lost Avery, he has been my caretaker. He continuously puts my needs above his even though he is in pain too. I would be lost without him and I am thankful God blessed me with such a wonderful husband.
