Saturday at dinner we got the call, she's in labor. They live a little over two hours from here. Her due date wasn't until the 23rd, but we were told to expect the baby a bit early, like maybe next week.
So we hurriedly got our act together and made arrangements for care of the dog. We drove to Columbia and arrived at the hospital around 10:00, to find that they were prepping for a C-section. So baby grandson came into the world at 10:22pm on Feb 7, at 5 lbs. 14.9 oz. and 19" long.
For the blog I will refer to him by his initials, CJ.
Baby CJ, about 10 hours old
We got to see the baby in the nursery immediately after his birth Saturday night, and we were able to visit again yesterday morning. Due to unfortunate circumstances, my son and his wife are separated, but amicable. I was afraid she wouldn't want us around. But she was very gracious. She didn't mind us in the hospital room with her and the baby, and when I asked her if I could touch him, she gave him to me to hold. Best outcome I could have hoped for!!!
