Jackson Latham Bromley

1:01 pm
8 lbs. 14 oz.
20.5" long
Mom and baby are doing well.


Baby is happy as long as we leave him/her alone, but when Beth has
contractions, the heartbeat starts to dip. So they are prepping for a
C section. She should go into the OR in the next half hour.


7:45 am

The doctor just gave orders to start pitocin. We are giving this child
an eviction notice.

7:20 am

Nothing much happening. She is starting to feel the contractions but
at 5 am when they checked her, she had not really progressed. So they
gave more meds and we are still resting.

Progress on becoming an aunt (again)

When I arrived in Rochester, my sister was just getting set up in the
hospital. She had the fetal monitors going, and they had just put in
the IV. At 1 am Eastern, they gave her something to help ripen her
cervix. At 2:30 am they started her on fluids. It is almost 3 now, and
we are all just doing our best to rest while we can.

Travels & Mother's Day

Last year we celebrated Mother's Day at Papaya Bay restaurant in Redlands (one of my very favorites!). Timmy was still doing quite well. He was pretty tired, and getting close to Diagnosis Day... but he was still eating and smiling and standing and laughing and taking a binky. No tubes or meds.

Tomorrow I leave for New York, so that I can be with my sister and brother-in-law as they welcome their precious child into the world. So even though we won't get to hold our own precious little one this Mother's Day, I am looking forward to being with my family and meeting this sweet niece or nephew. And I think that under the circumstances, that will be about the best way imaginable to spend the day.

P.S. I posted more photos from last Mother's Day in the photo gallery.
