I may be 2 days late, but I know with everything going on this week, Kole will understand.
11 years ago, on April 23, 1998, I went into my OB office for a scheduled visit at 2pm, with Kevin. Kole was due on April 26th and with my previous two children all coming so quickly, we weren't taking any chances.
The doctor did his examination and wouldn't ya know it-dilated to a 3, with no labor pains, I might add. Off to the hospital we went!
Once at Riverside, the on-call doc broke my water and we waited. We figured that since Kyle only took 4 hours once the water broke, and Kurt 3, that Kole would be 2. Makes sense right? Welllll....by 6pm NOTHING!! No contractions, no progrssion, nothing!! The only thing we could figure was that w/ the first 2 the doctor had also given me Petocin after they broke my water. Well, I hate that stuff with a passion and declined it this time. So..........at 7pm I said "bring it on!"
At 9:32pm he was born!! 8lb 1oz and 21 in. long. Cute as a button!!
Love ya Kole!! You were the best baby ever and a geat kid today!!
