Technically On Vacation, But I Can't Resist the Urge

Grandchild will be here tomorrow; stayed tuned

This week, I am technically on vacation, but I couldn't resist the urge to put something on this blog to let all you guys know what is going on with me.

My newest grandchild is scheduled to be born sometime tomorrow. His mom will go in about 7 a.m. Wednesday for induction and we'll see from there. He will be number four in his family of two sisters and a brother -- plus a little angel brother who was born on his due date but tangled in his cord five years ago on June 25.

We miss that little guy so much.

As I write this, his siblings are tucked in and hopefully really asleep on an air mattress behind me.

And tonight, the day before the due date, is kind of hard for me as I remember all the hope and joy and planning we felt then only to have everything turn to incredible grief.

So, join me in praying this little guy gets here tomorrow, safe and sound, ten fingers, ten toes and an APGAR of at least 8.
