Jackson Madison County Regional is an excellent well staffed facility. Their employees are pleasant and dedicated to a quality experience for not just the patient but family as well. I was there as my daughter's advocate and we stuck together for five days without killing each other. We both cried now and then and felt sorry for ourselves. I watched, as a healthcare provider, how the whole thing operates on a larger level than where I work. There are stories of random acts of kindness and people watching that will be shared as I remember them.
The most important thing is that after four days of labor, Reaves was born healthy. I attended my first live c-section as the end of coach duty. It was straight out of Grey's Anatomy, just saying. After some time in recovery following several days of L/ D ( thanks y'all ) we shuffled on into a mother baby unit where all went well until the bilirubin shot up and Lauren got a spinal headache. I'm home for the night and heading back tomorrow for the transition to Aspell. When I left Reaves was still nekkid and under the strobe lights but right there with Mom and her tribe. And you know what? I can't wait to see that mean mug again ^j^
