    After the visit to the doc today, we found out that the c-section has been now moved up to tomorrow morning. So my wife and I will be heading to the hospital at 5:45AM tomorrow for surgery prep. Surgery will begin at 7:30AM and soon thereafter, our daughter will be coming into the world.

    I appreciate thoughts and prayers. I will post sometime tomorrow to let everyone know how it went.

    Oh yeah, I will be there. I wouldn't miss it for the world. I saw my son being born as well. I have to get the pictures of the baby on the scales and momma holding baby for the first time too. It should be a long day, but a good day.

    I was in the operating room when my wife had her c-section. I was shocked and couldnt believe I had a daughter. I was so sure we were going to have a son. The doctor told me the warranty on the baby expired so i had to keep her

    :lol:

    It's now 8:20 PM on December 22. Little Kayleigh Rose finished the pre-landing checklist and turned final. She landed at 8:37 AM, none the worse for wear. She weighs 6 lbs, 15.7 oz and is 19 inches in length.

    Mom and baby are doing great and resting comfortably. Whew, what a relief. My son had a rough start and my poor wife had a tough time when my son was born. This time was night and day difference. I felt relaxed throughout and was so very happy to have them together in recovery. Here are some pics of the big day.
