Our daughter was due to deliver our first grand-daughter on 11-11-11 by C-section because the baby was breach. I had been scheduled for a month to fly to Lawton, OK on Friday, November 4, so that I could spend a week with daughter before she delivered. Late Thursday, husband scheduled to fly up Nov. 10 and back Nov. 11. Five minutes after the flight was scheduled, Army son-in-law called to tell us daughter had developed severe preeclampsia-or "toxemia of pregnancy" and they would deliver the baby the next morning.
Needless to say, we were on the road within the hour. It took us 8 hours and we were at the Reynolds Army Community Hospital when daughter returned to the room. Our grand daughter was perfect. We know this because that's what the doctor said. She was 7 lbs. 5 oz. and 19 in long, born on 11-4-11.
I also had to make some things of the baby. I did not have my tools or my sewing machine. I did bring some yarn and embroidery thread. I bought some onsies and started to work.
Paw Paw came and picked me up Thursday. We left Friday and stopped in Dallas to visit friends. We got home about 2 am Saturday. I am very tired and I really enjoyed my bed.
I will tell more about the trip later.
