hey child, stay wilder than the wind

Monday I talked to Katie-bear and she informed me that she had an appointment on Tuesday with the doctor to schedule inducing the pregnancy hopefully on the 10th and that she would call me when she left the office. Well, Wednesday morning I still hadn't heard from her. I came home and took a nap and woke up to a voicemail from her husband saying "Katie was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon because her blood pressure is seriously high" and other medical symptons that I didn't quite understand but I figured were serious. I drove up there and spent most of the evening/night in her room. I came home to sleep and planned to go back in the morning. Her sister in law called me at 8:00 and said that they had to do an emergency c-section because the baby's pulse was almost non exsistent and Katie was sick. Soooo by the time I got there she was back in her room and she and the baby are both fine. I am now a god-mother :)
The only person I called was Adam because I only had his number, but for the rest of you co-workers and wonderful people here are the statistics:

Marian Lena Craig
4 pounds 10 oz. 17 inches
born at 7:39 a.m.
October 6th 2005

She is sooo cute. I was worried about why she is so tiny, because she's not premature and the doctor said it probably had to do with the high blood pressure and that her umbilical cord was wrapped around her stomach and her neck (which was why the pulse was so low). Katie is probably going to be in the hospital until Sunday, she can have visitors but she's really really worn out but if anyone want's to talk to her call me or Jon because she's not in a regular room yet so there is no phone.

In other news I succesfully drove my car to the hospital Wednesday night but today on the way home I stalled out twice on airline. The worst thing was when I tried to go up the incline to my neighborhood, the car stalled and rolled back into the intersection and I just could not get it up the incline, people were zooming past me and it was no fun so I'm just going to not drive to far until I totally get down the stopping and starting up again thing. standard transmission makes me cry.
