Hello Friends and Family,
The time has come, Tanya is slowly being induced for labor. What this means is that Desmond will be born within the next few days. Induced labor is not quite the same as “natural” labor.. and according to the nurses and doctors, there is no real “average” time for an induced delivery either. What we do know is it can take anywhere from one to three days before we get to see Desmond face to face. We also know that this is part of God’s perfect plan.
Tanya is doing good. Every time I slide off the side couch next to her bed where my laptop is, I create some static electricity. So far I’ve manged to zap her (on accident, of course) 3 or 4 times through the sheets! I’ve made her laugh a few times as a result. I’ve also managed to shock myself on the bathroom door handle twice.. the last time it made me jump so far that it made Tanya and the nurse jump too and then break out in laughter. So, all things considered, spirits are good, for now. We can’t do anything about what nature or God has planned.. so we’re just taking it stride by stride.
This morning we woke up to the sound of labor from the room behind us. Right now, as a matter of fact, there is another one in labor in that same room. So I have music playing to distract Tanya from the sound of labor. And now she’s sleeping.
Anyways that’s the update so far. Please pray for a quick, safe, and low pain delivery! I’ll keep you guys posted.
