For those who are interested...grandson Jaksyn was born this morning at 4:55 with daddy on one side and me on the other. It's such a miracle to witness a new life. And for those who are interested in some details...mommy went into serious labor about
2:00 AM, we left home about
3:30 AM, got her to the hospital and into a room/bed and she started the final stages of labor about
4:40. The anesthesiologist showed up quick with the epidural but baby was beginning to crown. Mom was a bit shocked having to go 'natural' but it only took another 10-15 minutes and we were holding a wondrous baby boy.
Jackson Richard is 6# 2.3 oz and 19" long with lots of long, dark hair and the most beautiful skin. I came home and slept for a bit but now grandpa and I are taking big brother, 3 years old, in to meet is new best friend.
Thanks for all of the prayers and good wishes. I know it made a difference!
