The Mystery Solved

Hello! Jay here- with an update on Jen, who is currently resting in the hospital.

As many of you know, Jen has been having a rough time lately. Various aches and pains, unintentional weight gain for several months, swelling and tingling in her legs. Due to an increase in her puffiness and more severe pains in her belly we went to the hospital yesterday afternoon to get her checked out. They ran some tests and gave her medicine in an IV, but the cramps just kept getting worse.

[***SPOILER ALERT***]

Anyway, long story short: they say hindsight is 20/20 (boy, is my face red now!) but just when the pain in her belly seemed its worst, a baby girl popped out of Jen's knickers! We named her Alice June, and plan to take her home with us on Sunday. So far she's cute as a button and healthy as a horse. Neither of us thought to take a camera in all the rush, but we'll get some snapshots really soon. Thank you all for your support during this trying time. Huzzah!
