Awaiting Arrival of Grandchildren

I received a telephone call from Chris, Stacey’s mother, at 1:30 the afternoon of May 18th.  Stacey’s C-section had been scheduled for Tuesday, May 22. She has been going to the doctor every Friday since mid April.  The doctor decided to push up the C-section because Stacey’s hands and feet were very swollen from water retention.  In addition Harper’s fluid level had gone down.  Nothing for alarm, though, because the doctor scheduled the C-section for after his office hours.   Chris said that the babies would be taken at 4:00 PM.  Bob and I drove to Hamot Women’s Hospital in Erie, arriving there by 3:15 PM.    Mike arrived around 3:40 PM and went immediately into the birthing center.
