A {Short} Labor Story

April 27, 2011

8:30 am Uncomfortable contractions timed at 3 minutes apart, 45 seconds long.

9:00 am Friends pick up boys; we head to hospital.

9:15 am Admitted to triage, give consent for pain assistance if labor goes long.

9:30 am Triage nurse determines I'm at 9 cm.; I cry in relief.

10:25 am Beautiful baby boy born; The Preacher catches with teary eyes, for the fifth time. Baby and mama just fine.

No obscenities, hyperbole, or wailing was used in the delivery of this baby; I am just amazed as the next person.

8 lbs. 14 oz. 21 inches

And Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father had done...the heart of Asa was wholly true to the Lord all his days.

1 Kings 15:11, 14b
