  • Baby soon!!!!!

    we went to see the doctor on wednesday the 26th and she is ready to go, he says! 75% thinned and 2 cm dialated. the original due date was the 10th of august but the doctor says she is ready and could have it next week if we wanted too. Dumb question!!!!! So wednesday the 2nd of august we go in at 5:30am to start the process. it's my fathers birthday, as well. he said all along it would be that day and sure enough it is. we are all very excited!! i'll post something as soon as i can after the arrival!
    thanks, brian

      Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

                          She is here!!!!!! 6.14 LBS, 20.5 INCHES LONG AND BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL


                          SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG TO POST BUT WE JUST GOT HOME! AFTER 4 HOURS OF LABOR A C-SECTION WAS DONE, AT 8:22 WEDNESDAY SHE WAS BORN! AND MAN WHAT A FEELING. I HAVE ONLY HEARD WHAT KIND OF FEELING IT IS TO BE A FATHER AND IT IS MORE THAN ANYONE CAN EVER IMAGINE(EXCEPT YOU PARENTS). SHE IS TRULY A MIRACLE. THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND PRAYERS IT REALLY MEANS ALOT TO US.

                          A LITTLE POEM I WROTE AND GAVE TO ABBY WHEN WE GOT HOME TODAY ALONG WITH MY LIVE STRONG BRACELET THAT I HAVEN'T TAKEN OFF SINCE BEING DIGNOSED:

                          THIS BRACELET WE USE TO WHERE WAS ONLY A REMINDER OF WHEN WE WERE SCARED,
                          NOT A DAY WENT BY THAT IT WAS NOT ON, WE ONLY KNOW NOW WHY IT IS GONE,
                          THERE IS ONLY ONE REASON THAT WE CHOSE TO MOVE ON, THAT'S TO CHERISH YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE ONE OF OUR OWN.
                          IT SPEAKS VOLUMES WITH ONLY ONE GOAL, ONE WE KNOW WILL NEVER BE UNKNOWN,
                          THAT OUR LOVE FOR YOU WILL ALWAYS, LIVE STRONG.

                          I'LL BE SURE TO POST A PICTURE AS SOON AS I CAN!
                          THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE SUPPORT, MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
