Today started out like any other day.
John got up early to go fishing with his nephew.
I got up thinking I would go back to bed.
I didn't have a good night's sleep for coughing.
I would then get up in time to get ready
to go to my Weight Watcher's meeting.

Then . . . the phone rang.

The call that changed my plans.

I figured it was Roger calling for John,
to see if he was ready.
It was Tania calling . . . Sierra was in labor
and Johnny was taking her to the hospital.
My new plans were to head for the hospital.
Holley is on spring break,
so her dad brought her over
so she could go to the hospital with me.
We got to the hospital at 11:00 a.m. and waited,
and waited, and waited some more.
I had to leave for my Weight Watcher's meeting.
I lost another 2.5 lbs., making a total of 9 lbs. for
the two weeks that I've been on the plan . . .
praise God!

Now back to the hospital for more waiting.

Finally . . . at 2:20,
little Lily is born.
It wasn't an easy birth . . .
she had to be pulled out.
But, praise God, she is a perfect little girl.
I finally got to go in to see her and hold her.
There aren't words to explain how I felt.
She looks just like Johnny did
when he was born.
I only had her for a few minutes and . . .
the nurse took her away.

I didn't get pictures . . . so a pictureless post.

They will come home tomorrow and I will
get pictures just as soon as I can.

I can hardly wait to see her again.

That's it for now. . . . but more to come.

I'm still excited!
