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.
Sue, Mike’s mother, was the next to arrive, followed by Jay, Chris’s husband.
