So yesterdia I received a phone call at 4:20 from Tia Norma stating that Silvia was at the hospital and in labor. She was at a 3 and was by herself. I scooted on over there and found her in la labor.
We quickly asked for a ball and sat her on top. Check out the " these just feel like cramps, I got this smile." look on her face. Hahaha Derrick took her for a stroll around the hallways and came back after 30 minutes in full on labor.
38 sec contractions every 2:34 minutes. (I love my iphone. I know I'm old when I say this, but technology is grand my dears. I could just click my wee stop watch on my phone. It is like magic)
This is Carmen, Silvia's nurse. She deserves a medal. I might make her one. When your cousin was leaning over crying during her epidural, Carmen was in her face, talking in a soothing voice and saying angelic things.
Silvia went from a six to a 9 1/2 in 3 hours once she received the epidural. Then it was time to experiment pushing.
Did I mention that Uncle Mike was up in Page AZ doing some business. He rode up there with Uncle Phil, so he had to rent a car and drive back. He sped back and made it to the hospital in 4 1/2 hours. Hot Damn Tio.
Here we are just before the lovely 30 minutes of pushing ensued.
