Not Yet

Those of you who were at the wedding will remember my lovely, but very pregnant, bridesmaid Nancy. She is pictured below on the far right.

Nancy was scheduled to be induced this morning at 6:30 am. The troops were rallied. Childcare for Isabella was arranged and Nancy's folks are in town from Canada to run support. I was scheduled to arrive at the hospital with breakfast for everyone. If this birth was to be anything like Isabella's, it would be over in an hour. When I arrived at the hospital at 7:00 am sharp, they couldn't locate her.

What is her name again? No, we don't have anyone by that name.

And it wouldn't be under any other name? (Umm, like whose? Her husband's? A pseudonym?)

Are you sure she was supposed to be at this hospital?

At that point, I called the house and lo and behold, Nancy answered the phone. Apparently, the hospital called Nan at 4:00 am and told her not to come because they didn't have a bed for her. Not having slept a wink all night, she promptly fell back asleep.

Needless to say, we had bagels at the house. Try again tomorrow...
