The Delivery

Well, it’s been a long 12 hours since my last update. The Wife had dilated up to about an 8 cm. She then went down to a 7 cm. She wasn’t progressing and about 1:00 am the Nursing Staff decided that the Wife would probably have to deliver by a C-Section. The Doctor was called who signed off on it and we went into the Operating Room (the OR). I don’t think it was the C-Section, but I got really sick to my stomach. I had to go into the hallway after the baby was born and lay down. The staff got worried about me a little bit and gave me some orange juice. The baby was born at 2:54 am. He weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces! A big ol’boy. The Wife, the Baby, and I got into our room at about 6:30 am. I’m a Daddy. I can’t believe it.
