I'm a Grandpa!

January 13, 2016 — Michael Schiller


Today at 1:04PM my daughter made me a grandpa by giving birth to a beautiful 8 pound 10 ounce baby girl! It seems no matter what plans you make, reality has other plans. She was originally due a week from today, but my daughter and her doc had a long conversation about it, and they decided that because it seems that many babies are born in the middle of the night, and that would be a pain in the ass for all involved, she would go to the hospital on this coming Friday, and the doc would at his leisure bring on the birth. Well, it seems little Nellie wasn't going to have any part of that, she was going to make her debut on her own schedule. Last night the phone rings at 3:30AM to let me & my mother know that her water had broken, and she was on her way to the hospital! My mother tells her to relax (at 78 years old my mother still thinks she has to tell everyone what to do), and that we would meet her at the hospital in about an hour or so. So we get there, and like many other things in life, it turns out to be another 'hurry up and wait' situation. I can't complain, my granddaughter is an amazing new life, and I just hope she gets to live to get as old as my mother is, and to be as healthy as my mother is when she gets there!
