Already taking after his mother . . .

Looks like we have a stubborn one on our hands . . . hopefully, soon to be IN our hands! Sally has stalled out at 8 cm. Her uterus is just not contracting the way it needs to to push this baby even close to out and he's under such stress that they've decided to do a c-section.

I just got the call from my mom. Sis is relieved. She's exhausted and didn't think that, by this point, she'd have the energy to push the way she would need to, anyway. Within the next 1/2 hour (it's currently 8:30pm CST) they'll be taking her in to prep for the surgery. Doctors say from that point it should be about an hour and a half or so for the surgery, clean-up, assessment of baby, etc.

MAN, it feels like this day is never ending!! And Sally's situation is ever-changing!!

Keep praying!

I'm glad there's an end in sight! Tell Sally we are praying for her and Major. This is only the start of the unexpected aspects of motherhood!
