It was a Sunday morning. Jen had been in the hospital over the weekend for monitoring, and although this baby was healthy, heart tones were not where they should be. I wasn’t on call, but the call came – ready or not. An emergency cesarian was called for, at 33 weeks gestation.
She was set to be in the OR in a matter of 30 minutes. I bolted home, grabbed my bags, and rushed to East Jefferson General Hospital, praying I’d make it in time. Chris was waiting outside the OR, and we both got suited up to go in. They were both in such great spirits!
This little guy headed for the NICU, where he would stay for the next 4 weeks.
I left, and then came back a few hours later when it looked like mama would get to go and officially meet her baby!
Jen and Chris, I’m so glad I got to be with you guys on this incredible day! It has been so much fun seeing Grayson grow! Thank you!
