The Countdown: 2

I should have posted this yesterday, but I am down to two weeks! These last few weeks have flown by. Here is the update: I am dilated to a 2 plus and 90% effaced. WOOHOO! My doctor also checked my chart to see how I measured at 38 weeks during my pregnancy with Ashlyn, and I was the EXACT same! I thought that was very interesting. But, I think it also means that I will not be having this baby any time soon :( I was hoping to go early, but no such luck.

While I was writing this post, I found out that Brian's Grandpa died this morning. He has been ill with two forms of rare cancer. He has been in 24 hour hospice care and has not been coherent for about a week. We were able to visit him on Sunday and Brian was with him this morning when he passed away. We are grateful that his suffering is over. We are also grateful to him for what he did for Ashlyn. When Ashlyn was born we were able to start an investment fund for her because of the money he gave her. She will greatly benefit from this when she is older. Thank you Grandpa Homer. You will be missed.

My condolences to you and Brian. It is good that he is no longer suffering...but it still hurts. At least we have the Gospel.

You seem further along than us! Deb's due tomorrow and there's no sign it's coming anytime soon.

That is sad about Brian's grandpa, but it is nice that he won't be suffering anymore and has left a great legacy behind! Very exciting about having a baby soon! But then the hard part begins!

I'm sorry about your grandpa. You will be in our prayers. That's neat though about the fund you were able to set up. Good luck with your upcoming baby!

What a sweet picture of your daughter with Brian's grandpa. He's probably up there getting your new arrival ready...giving her the inside info about her new parents! My grandma passed away a few days before Becca's son Ryker was born, and I like to think they met up during that brief time.
