Busy Week

This has been a very full week.  On Saturday, we hosted a small wedding for our friend, Lanton and his wife, Isnelvis.  We actually attended their "church" wedding in Cuba in March, but they needed a ceremony done in the United States to get all the i's dotted and t's crossed.  We had dinner with two other couples and it was very sweet.

Then, on Monday night I was contacted by Janie from Sounding Forth, that I needed to go stay overnight with our friend, Tramaine, who was in labor. People, you must realize that I have only been through labor once, 35 years ago, and it ended up in a C-section. I don't remember ANYTHING about the 29 hours up until they decided I wasn't going to have that baby vaginally!
Tramaine's uncle, who is only 6 years older than her and more like a brother, was on his way, too. He and his wife have 4 children, but they have all been C-sections, too. Talk about the blind leading the blind! I felt slightly like Prissy in Gone With the Wind, "I don't know nuthin' about birthing no babies!"

Sitting up with her through the night was a major thrill...scary, sort of, as the pains intensified closer to morning.  When we were on the way to the hospital for a scheduled doctor's appointment, her uncle had the presence of mind to call the office and see whether we should go to labor and delivery or to the office. We were sent to L&D.  

After they did the triage, they told her, good news, bad news.  Good news is that you are dilated to a 4.9, bad news is that you have bought yourself a room!  Things progressed fairly quickly, and I got to witness my first vaginal delivery. Unbelievable. Truly we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Sweet little Ada arrived at 3:49 on Tuesday eyes wide open, with the prettiest lips you have ever seen.  Mom and Ada are home now under the experienced care of Nana Pat.  

I spent the day yesterday helping Isnelvis organize her kitchen...poor Lanton, he may never find a bowl or cup! Also left some recipes for them to try.  I will be interested to see how the recipes translate! Then off to see Miss Ada and her Mom and Nana Pat to deliver a rocking chair and dinner. Fun, fun, fun.

Taking it kind of easy today...
