No Turning Back

This time, my daughter Julia is in major labor and there is no stopping.
Daniel will just be three weeks earlier than his due date. She has been in labor all afternoon. Her water was broken. She is fully dilated. She is in a lot of pain and very tired. As I recall, this is the usual baby stuff, but it makes me afraid to think about it much. This time, I sit here at home and wait. Viggo and Barbara are with Julia. She has just been given an epidural to ease her pain.

I'm going to go watch FutureWeapons on the Discovery Channel and I will hope that the sight of stuff getting shot and blown up can calm me down.
