Thanks Andy & Sandy! I just found out that they will be taking the baby at 1:00 this afternoon. I'm excited & scared at the same time! This will be the 9th time I've become an aunt but it's just as wonderful as the 1st!

Prayers and hugs all around. Go get that goody basket filled up to take to the new mom. It will keep you busy, and your thoughts positive.

The family has my prayers too. I couldn't imagine going through that, and I pray everyone's fears are calmed and all turns out well.

Alix, how did you know what I was doing! My BIL is an awesome cook but I know with 2 girls already & a new baby boy he won't want to spend time cooking. I'm making them brownies & putting together the stuff for a spaghetti dinner. I've got spaghetti sauce simmering right now & that will go into freezer containers for them to use as needed. Not to mention the basket of baby goodies that I've been collecting for them.

Thanks Barbara! I just recieved an email from my preacher's wife that included the chorus to a song she's singing at churh Sunday & between reading those words & everyones posts here it has really helped calm my fears.


You are all very special people & I am blessed to have you in my life!

LOL crewsk, it is what I would be doing! Send some "pretty stuff" to the new mom too. Some nice hand/face lotion (hospitals are so dry!), nice earrings maybe? I always sent some peppermint tea for anyone who has had a c section too. Helps with the bloating and stuff afterward and the nurses will let you have it.
