We got that early morning phone call we have been expecting about 8am this morning and headed to the hospital. Amanda was in labor and dilated 4cm with buldging membranes. They were getting her some pain medication while they waited on Anesthesia to come put the epidural in. They were soooo glad when the epidural got in and worked. The parents and the nurses both. LOL. Dallas arrived shortly after noon weighing in at 8 1/2 lbs and 21 inches long. He is just adorable. This pregnancy was harder on Amanda than her 1st one 3yrs ago but the delivery was soo much easier. She retained the placenta 3yrs ago but everything came out fine today.
Now for the not so good news. My co-worker that we took food to Saturday evening called work today shorty after 3pm to let everyone know her darling husband has passed away. I started THIS thread Friday. I am updating it today. God is so good in so many ways. Ruth is going to miss him so much but he is not suffering any longer and that is a blessing to his loved ones for sure.
