Our regular scheduled checkup turned into quite a day! High blood pressure called for
some tests and monitoring of Emily and the baby.
With everything checking out okay, the doctor said we could go home, but Emily would be
on bed rest.
So...out to eat we went...Perkins of course.
Next came VERY Strong contractions for over 1 hour
So...back to the hospital we go to be monitored.
1 hour later...nurse says there isn't any change and so Emily will most likely go home.
But...the doctor said no, keep her and monitor for at least one more hour,
Because...WE LIVE 1 1/2 HOURS AWAY FROM THE HOSPITAL!
and it's a very good thing we did!
here is the order of the next events:
Emily's mom (Cathy) shows up
joel takes Cathy and Corbin to Hotel
Emily calls and says her water broke...to late for meds
Joel breaks the speed law
Joel gets to hospital at 11:35pm
Emily says the baby is coming at 11:44pm
Baby is born 11:46 pm
Doctor shows up 11:47pm
mommy was a trooper!
Mommy and baby are doing great and looking beautiful!
God is great...all the time!!!
