11 YEARS AGO....

It was 11 years ago that hip hubby and I were preparing for our third child. We had family all lined up and ready to meet us at the hospital.  If I remember correctly allmykids123 was watching Cody and Kyle. That morning was crazy! Hip hubby and I arrive at the hospital at 6 a.m. I get checked into a room and get changed! We are so excited and sooooo scared!!
The nurse walks into the room, I'm thinking to hook me up to all of the machines....oh, how wrong I was. She came in and said in this sweet voice, trying to be so nice,,,"I just spoke to you doctor and he had the delivery date wrong! He has you down for tomorrow." I said "WHAT" she said"he wants to talk to you" I say "o.k." Dr. S gets on the phone and tells me " I am so sorry, I put the wrong date on the calendar." " I hate to do this to you, but we will have to deliver the baby tomorrow", I say , through all of the tear "What are you talking about, I have everything ready for today and I am already here" He says "I'm so sorry, but I have surgery today. Tomorrow will be a better day" What was I suppose to say after that?
So hip hubby and I leave the hospital with a crew of nurses, they felt so bad, too. The nurses kept telling me that they would all be there tomorrow and they would be waiting for me...
GREAT.....Now I have to go home and I have the longest day of my life and another night of no sleep. So as  hip hubby answered the 100's of calls and told everybody about the doctors mistake, I slept!!!!
SO, to make a long story short,,,the next day we had a replay of above ( just the going to the hospital, the Dr. was there) except this time when I walked in ALL of the nurses were waiting for me and they had the big, new,totally awesome delivery room waiting just for me and hip hubby......we were treated like like royalty. It really was special...I felt like a princess.....and the Dr. well lets just say, I got what ever I wanted.....most Dr. will just be on call waiting to catch the baby,,,,not Dr. S. He was waiting right outside of the room. He was coming in so much that the nurses wanted him to leave...he was trying to make up for his mistake. I felt like the only mommy in the hospital that day.......

I remember those 2 days VERY WELL! Those were the good old days of playdates! I was thinking the other day.. do you remember when I'd haul the kids over and we would make pancakes for the week (tons of them) and watch.. gosh it was either Days of our Lives or General Hospital? Emily said she remembers your awesome playroom and yes, she remembers stripping down to her undies and parading around your house (at the ripe old age of 4).

Give Connor a hug for me. Can't believe he is going to be 11!! GULP.

If I remember correctly--You said I could go get some coffee about 10:30 and when I came back at 11 everyone was rushing around because Connor decided he was going to be born RIGHT NOW. I can't beleive he is going to be 11--last year was hard enough with double digits.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY --CONNOR--GRAMIE LOVES YOU BESTEST...
