: Crazy year

No picture on this one, just a reflection...

It was a year ago today that our world was turned upside down, all starting at around 8:30 in the morning. I was between accounting assignments, and Jess woke me up to say that she thought her water broke...

Can't be I thought, we still have 3 months until our little Pip is supposed to be here, this can't be happening - please God don't let this be happening...

We grabbed a bag and hopped in the car, breaking the speed limit and double yellow line rules, all rushing to get to St Joe's, because CHOC was the best in the nation. Panicked calls to family and friends about the situation and figuring out was next. A few days before, we were in our other homeland - Maui, with our amazing friends the Kings, Mai Tai's (for me), shaved ice, wonderful food and an all around awesome time. Now freaking out about what is going to happen next.

We are told to be ready for the long haul, 6 or so weeks of bed rest for Jess. Movies, games, magazines and friends start pouring in as we're digesting what the doctors are saying and prepping for a long time in the hospital.

At the end of the day, the diagnosis is possible cervix issue, but the hospital is ready for us to stay for 6 weeks - minimum. We're prepping for it and trying to figure out what that will look like. And what we're going to do because we just signed papers two days prior to this and we're supposed to close and be out of our house on the 20th. Oh well, something to think about tomorrow. For now, I sleep in the same room as Jess on two chairs pulled together and freak out at every alarm and whistle, which turns out to be only because something has fallen off Jess or below where it needs to be. It's a rough night, the adrenaline is finally wearing off at 11 or so that night. Chairs aren't comfortable, but I don't care about that right now, I want my amazing wife and our first child to be safe and healthy. Prayers are flying all night long when I'm not being started by the alarms... Please God, keep my love safe and healthy and be with our little one... we love you, and thank you for our family and friends...

Crazy how things change in a year...

For now, good night, time to sleep!

Aloha!
