"EXCITING NEWS!"

My oldest son, Patrick, called yesterday morning to say that he and his wife, Julie, were at the hospital. Julie's labor contractions had started around 1 AM. That was the last I'd heard from him until around 6 AM this morning. My 1st grandchild, Abigail Cynthia, was born around 5:30 last night, by cesarean section. The decision to have a c section was made when Abigail's heart rate would drop after a contraction. Both Julie and Abigail are doing fine. She weighed 5# 14oz. and is 19" long. I asked about her hair color, but Patrick said the room was too dark to really tell, although he thought it was light in color. Julie's original due date was November 1st, but she'd been told this week at her Dr.s appointment, that it could be any time now. Seems that was correct, eh? ;)
