Its nearly 2am here on the east coast, and I'm sitting in a hospital room helplessly as my wife struggles with contractions. There's literally nothing I can do right now except listen to her groaning every few minutes when a fresh round of pain starts up.

Gentlemen (and lady) I've seen and done no small number of things in my lifetime, but this feels like nothing that I've ever, ever dealt with before. Despite the agony of not being able to do anything for Kim while she's hurting, this is absolutely awesome.

Before you start to laugh, the families have both been notified and we're waiting on their arrival. The only other thing I can do is surf the web and drink coffee- if I fall asleep, I'll probably be killed. Since I've known several of you for a lot of years, and I consider no small number of you friends despite wanting to bludgeon you for your opinions sometimes, it seemed sort of fitting that I keep you up to date on the situation.

So, more than likely, the next chance I get to post I'll have a few pictures of 'baby reb' to share. Thas it all for now. "Bender's Game" is on the tv, so I'll make an attempt to watch that- that is if I can sit still long enough once the coffee kicks in.

Goodnight.

Don't forget to mark the baby somewhere only you would look, to protect it from babysnatchers.



Congrats!

Amen brother.

After a few ours of rather painful contractions, they finally drugged her with some good stuff that allowed her to rest for a while. As I sit here now, its wearing off and mild discomfort is giving way to honest to goodness pain again. I don't know HOW they do it.
