Evactuating with a Newborn

So it's Cass, that's right, I'm back! As mentioned in the previous 2 posts, I had my baby on Monday, and on Thursday morning we evacuated Galveston. Let me just say first that I have the most beautiful baby girl in the world. Bo and I are so blessed to have her sweet spirit join us. Labor went fine. It's amazing what an epidural can do! :) On Wednesday we came home from the hospital, only to find out that the storm had shifted and was heading our way. With that in mind, we packed up and headed out Thursday morning. That's right, I evacuated with a baby not even 3 days old.
We are here in Richmond, TX, which is right next to Sugarland. We thought of driving all the way to Temple, TX, but honestly, with a newborn AND my parents in town, the thought of driving at least 4 hours was just not cool. My sister-in-laws parents live here and their house is out of major harms way. We are worried the power will go out, but that's about it.
The storm is headed straight to Galveston, which is where we live. We are of course nervous about our apartment, but glad we have our children. Really that's all that matters. We are okay. I am of course not up to par, but count my blessings that I had Megan before the storm hit. If I hadn't had her, I'd be having her now, what with all the stress, at the house I'm staying in. So although I'm stressed about taking her out of the house, exposing her to all sorts of things, and not getting the rest that I am in big time need of, I am still glad that I had her when I did.
This blog is short because the storm is coming, and the power could go out at any moment here where we are.
Please keep us in your prayers. We have no idea what the future holds for us. Thanks for all your well wishes! Who knows when I'll be able to blog again, but when I do, I'll feel you in on all the details.

Cassidy I am so glad that you evacuated and so glad that you already had your baby! I'm watching the news as I type this and I just am so relieved that you aren't there. You're in my prayers and I hope your apartment comes out unscathed too.


My hubby's been telling me how serious this all is and I was worried cuz I remembered you lived in Galveston!! Luckily we live more in Central to West Texas so we're out of the way. A lot of evacuees are coming to our town and staying in the Convention Center. Anyway, your family is in our prayers and I'm glad to hear you have family close-by to stay with!! Oh and congrats on your beautiful baby!
