It’s really been a whole week since I last posted? I guess it makes sense; it’s been a busy one.
It all started on Friday of last week when my brother called to tell me that he and his 9-months-pregnant wife were heading to the hospital to be “monitored” again for potential pre-eclampsia. As it turned out, Marie DID have pre-eclampsia (severe pre-eclampsia, actually) and she was admitted to be induced.
I was on call to be there to take photos, but things moved very slowly from Friday night through the whole day Saturday. Tyler finally called me around 7:00 p.m. on Saturday to say that things were picking up, so I decided to head down to the hospital. Unfortunately for them, things continued to move pretty slow… and long story short, the baby wasn’t born until nearly 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. It was a looooong night for everyone, but especially Marie! I got about an hour of sleep on Saturday night, so I was pretty dead to the world on Sunday (as was everyone else in our family).
My dad drove up on Saturday morning to get here for the birth (needless to say, he made it with plenty of time to spare!), so he stayed with us all week. He just left this morning. So this week, we’ve just been busy with family–hanging out with my dad, going to the hospital, working, etc.
It’s always sad to see my dad leave at the end of a visit, since he loves seeing Nora (and Hunter, and now Bryce) so much. But we’ve been doing a lot of eating out and running around and generally being out of sorts, so it’ll be nice to get back into our normal daily routine. Too bad we’re heading into a super busy weekend! We have a wedding and then a family party for my cousin who is visiting from Shanghai.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get back into the blogging groove!
