5:25 pm - Holding our position for the Night

Well, Angi's doctor, Dr. Kohls, is off tomorrow, so she wanted to have us go home tonight and come back tomorrow evening to start this gel stuff overnight. Angi, who has maintained an incredibly positive attitude all day, finally broke under the stress and exhaustion and told the doctor she didn't want to retreat now. Dr. Kohls was just concerned that we got her excellent care and also that Angi got some much-needed rest, but Angi convinced her one of her associates would be fine tomorrow, she would sleep better tonight here, and we really wanted to continue the induction. Thus, Dr. Waschbusch will be Angi's doctor tomorrow, and we are hopeful the 20th of April will be Isabella's day. I am so proud of Angi for sticking to her guns.

Some may know that Angi picked April 20 in a "Due-Date" pool back in December. Some may also suspect that Angi has designs on winning this pool! But we know Isabella is on her own schedule and will come when she's good and ready, or when properly induced to think that she's good and ready!

I told Angi that God only wants one big event per day, so with Pope Benedict XVI being elected today, our big event had to be postponed until tomorrow. And hey, she's looking healthy, and that's the important thing.

Oh, yes, we've gone through a few more nurses-- Nurse Linda had to go attend a C-section, so Nurse Patty came on the task. Then she got called away for something else, and now we have Nurse Julie. But, Nurse Julie is off work at 7:00, so someone else will take the night shift.

In any case, Angi just took a bath herself and is now chatting with her mother on the phone. I'll upload this, and then we'll go for a walk, and then have a bite to eat. Around 6:00 they'll start the gellin' (like Magellan?) and about 9:00 they'll be giving Angi something to help her sleep.

More later-- thanks for reading! T

Tony -
We are all thinking of you two at St Rose.
Just an FYI Carrie had her baby boy Tuesday 4:22am Charlie William Sandquist. We were thinking Isabella and Charlie would have the same birthday! Stay strong, she will be here soon.
