This Trumps All…

Two blog posts within hours of each other?!?  I know; I’m breaking the rules of Emily “Post” blog etiquette.  Not something I would normally do but…BUT?  My son and his girlfriend are at the hospital expecting their first child!  Last I heard she was dilated 5 and just got an epidural. 

My flight home was booked for a week before her delivery date and then, after her last ultrasound, they moved it up a week.  I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed (and hoping she’d keep her legs crossed) until I got home.

I’m so excited and frustrated at the same time.  I’m pacing (I’m sure my son is pacing also) and waiting for the phone to ring…except my phone is hooked up to Magic Jack, which is relying on my internet connection through a data card…which is not always reliable. 

Damn, where is the Concorde when you need it?

**Update…
My third grandchild was just born via emergency C-section at approximately 10:10 a.m. CST, and it’s a girl!
