Came into the world on a very cold and blustery day….
And Into the arms of warm and caring parents!
I was on baby alert to catch the first moments … kept in-touch with dad via texts…. such the world we live in now 🙂
Saturday – 1.25.14 – 11:30 pm “Marisa is in labor! Heading to Hillcrest Hospital… he invited me to come I was cozy and warm and thought I would just hang for a time, and then the phone rang, Grandma Gina… we talked for a time and decided we both decided we would wait for further developments.
Sunday – 1.26.14 1:06 am “we have arrived at the hospital, Safely and they are taking us directly to our room…
Sunday – 2:39 am “It’s going to be a while I’ll keep you updated but all is great
Sunday – 10:03 am “Marisa’s contractions are 4 min apart and she is 4 ½ cm dilated and they are putting in the epidural now. They say we could still have 6-8 hours but they say no one know for sure J
Sunday – 11:47 am Marisa is now resting comfortably they have given her the epidural she’s going to take a little nap and hopefully something in the 4-8 hours she will wake up and we’ll have a baby. Right now she’s excited, but tired and very comfortable she’s healthy and so is the baby … everything is going fine. I’ll keep you updated
Sunday 1:37 pm Their doing a c-section in 30 minutes!
Sunday morning at different times I thought of heading to the hospital… snow flying, winds howling and the snow piling up…. Each time I thought… I have time… Well needless to say when the last text came I jumped up, gave Bill a kiss and said “I’m off the hospital…. Be safe he said and what a delight, the roads were clean as a whistle.
I made my way to the hospital in about 35 minutes, took 10 to find a parking spot and then to the L&D Waiting Room, where I found Grandma & Grandpa Dalessandro waiting patiently… I think!
We waited, and waited and waited… finally the text came from Dad…. “We have a happy, healthy, beautiful new baby… and mom is great!
