    She is home. :)

    Blood tests came back ok. She won't get the liver pics until she goes back for her follow up with the yeah.......this is going to drag out even more.:tongue: Now she has to call the urologist, go to follow up with the surgeon, take pics of liver to fam doctor......then do whatever he wants her to do.

    Good grief.

    Odds are if she'd been in a big city hospital.....they'd took care of it all before releasing her. sigh The drawback to living in a small rural area. Most specialist actually come from the larger you have to wait for them to get here before you can see them.:faint:

    And yeah.........easy child is in labor, although is refusing to go to the hospital at this time. Says the contractions aren't close enough yet. (not sure if she's just being stubborn or what) Turns out sister in law took a repair job thru work to work on a plane down in Geogia last night. Not uncommon, the airline often flies mechanics to where planes need repairs. BUT easy child had argued with him not to because she is so close to delivery. So now sister in law is stuck in Georgia until he can catch the next flight back to cincy......then he has the 2 hour drive home from the airport......

    So it looks like I'll be easy child's driver, plus her sitter for Darrin....(not sure how we're gonna swing that one) in a car with no windshield wipers and last I heard we have snow on the way. husband is also in cincy at work.....and easy child doesn't want her dad driving her because he drives too slow anyway.


    I am ready to stand in the back yard and scream. This has been one hellova a week.

    Hugs- for your hellokitty wait you said Hellova day - I am not familiar with that product. What is it's mascott?

    I'll work on it......

    Could you take Nichole's car?

    You have had a helluva week. It's exhausting. I hope you can catch your breath soon.

    Hope easy child's delivery goes smoothly. Make sure she doesn't wait too long!

    How is the weather? It's snowing here. Are you guys getting any of this? I hope that when she's ready, the roads are clear. If she waits to long, you may have to call the rescue squad.

    It's snowing which means of course I now can't take my car. Big giant white flakes, I'd think they were pretty under different circumstances. blah Not sure how much we're supposed to get cuz I haven't had time to check. Plus we're still trying to figure out what to do with Darrin....that's going to depend when she heads for the hospital., ect. I've got emails going back and forth with instructors making sure Nichole and I don't fall too far behind in work.

    I figured Brandon would schedule his arrival when it was the least convenient for everyone.......seems his proving his Nana true. sigh lol Babies.

    husband is home. He is better than nothing. lol And easy child will just have to deal if it comes to that. Her husband is on his way home, but we have no clue how long it will take him.

    I'm exhausted, and it looks like we've got a long night ahead of us. :faint:

    Oh, and I won't drive Nichole's death trap. Uh uh, no way! I have all I can do to quietly ride in the darn thing when she gives me rides to school. sister in law would have to fix the brakes before I'd try it.

    Keep fingers crossed. We may have a baby tonight and at least some of the drama will die down. If we get alot of snow school will be cancelled and I won't have to worry about missing a day. (I'm bad i know lol)

    I hope Nichole is feeling a little better and that all will be better when she sees the docs.

    Leave husband at home with Darrin and take easy child to the hospital in husband's car. Which hospital is she going to? I was born in Christ hospital and so were Jess and thank you. (Jess was even delivered by the same nurse who delivered me - same name on our hospital birth papers! AND she remembered my birth cause the doctor had 2 mamas delivering about 1 minute apart, ME FIRST!! And I went to school with the other baby for 6 years - his name is Kenny, LOL!)

    So I was wondering what hospital?

    Either way, I pray for a safe trip to the hospital and a safe delivery of a very healthy baby and a momma who is healthy and in good shape after the delivery. And a Gramma who survives all the uproar!

    Hugs to all!

    I'm glad Nicole is home. Hope she feels better soon. And a baby on top of all the other stuff.....I'm sure you are not a least bit stressed right now....LOL. Hopefully easy child won't wait too long and the weather allows safe passage.

    It's good Nicole is home and I am glad the blood tests were good, I hope nothing serious is found.

    I hope easy child is doing well and in the hospital by now!

    Hugs-I know this has been one long week for you.

    easy child won't walk around. (that's when the contractions become reg) sister in law still had to work tonight and she's hoping to hold off until morning. Me? I figure the lil bugger will decide to kick things into high gear once I manage to fall asleep. lol ;)

    Susie easy child is delivering in Wilmington at the hospital where she works, about 20 miles away from us. Good news is that the snow appears to have stopped. Bad news is that the highway we have to use is notorious for blowing and drifting snow. So honestly......I prefer baby Brandon wait until his Daddy can drive Mommy to the hospital too. lol

    So for now it's the waiting game. by the way easy child is miserable and has headed to bed hoping the contractions will stop. She didn't see me roll my eyes at her because we were on the phone. That happens to be the same thing I did right before my water broke with her. ;)

    Ugggg. Chapstick, chapstick, chapstick. That is difficult child's new self calming word (for details see post on general). Just hoping maybe some of the self calming magic that was working for him will work for you and for easy child's contractions. You tell that baby to wait for his Daddy.

    Hope all goes well Daisy.

    I know where Wilmington is, but not a hospital near there. My mom had JUST spread the plastic covering on the bed and put the sheet on over it when her water broke with my bro.

    I figure we do not have an update because the baby decided to come. Either way, let us know when you can and we are all praying for a safe drive and a healthy baby and mama.

    Hugs to Grandma, this is very nerve-wracking!

    I just read this- I hope you are sleeping and not boiling water or walking with easy child to the hospital. You must be located near some of my extended family. Anyway- I hope the night goes well- update when you can!
