Tyson is here!

The wait is over. Tyson has finally arrived. He came in at 6 lbs, 7 oz (biggest of the three boys). From my perspective, this delivery seemed the easiest but Lynn may disagree. I thought it went really smooth. One of the nurses said Lynn was a "super ninja", whatever that means but I took it as a compliment. There were no major issues with baby or mom. We could have probably gone home after the first night but unfortunately we had to stay the standard three days postpartum.

It sucks being in a hospital, let me count the ways:
  1. Not sleeping in your own bed. Sleeping on a plastic covered mattress or faux leather couch is miserable. It's bad enough most of your day is spent on it but to sleep on it sucks much worse.
  2. Terrible food. The only choice was either cafeteria food or McD's. Lynn got served hospital food and we both had a taste of the world's most bland mashed potatoes. And three days of McD's is more than I can take. I will never eat there again (unless it's the only food option available).
  3. Constant interruption. You have PCAs, nurses, medical students, residents, pediatric doctors, OB/GYN doctors, lactation consults, social services, dietary services, and janitors coming into your room. We are fine and just want to go home!
  4. Held against our will. Friday morning we were ready to leave but we had to get the discharge orders from all the doctors. The nurse informed us, "They are making their rounds late today, so they'll be here around 5 pm." Eff that! Being at a hospital for three days can make you go crazy. Another doctor (we had so many different doctors due to our original doctor being out of town) discharged us at 3:45 pm. We didn't get the final okay until 5 pm. But then the McD's downstairs (damn you) was on fire and no one could use the elevators (we were on the 25th floor). We finally got on the road (after navigating through the sea of firemen and trucks) at 6:45pm.
Breakfast pizza? Yes, breakfast pizza.
This hospital experience sucked (nobody was rude or anything) but this stay was seriously annoying. Okay, I'm done venting. Here are some pictures of baby Tyson.

I think he looks like Jacob when he was a newborn. Only time will tell who he will look like more. See more pictures of baby #3 below.
