Visitation, and Baby update

Went to the funeral home for the visitation of my friend's wife. There were a lot of people there. Lots of flowers. Lots of hugging and crying. Sad times. I ordered a red and white spray and after I got there and was looking at the flowers I remembered they were Auburn fans, but a lot of other people ordered red and white flowers as well, so I don't feel so bad. My friend said that he woke up this morning and his wife's dog that was in the car with her when she died was sitting on the front porch. It took him two days to get home and 11 miles, but he came home. Very touching.

For my baby update, we have no baby and probably won't until next Wednesday. He has not budged and there is no change from last week's report. The doctor said if Shannon does not go into labor by next Tuesday, he will do a sonogram to check Shawn's size and if he is over 8 pounds at that time the doctor will schedule Shannon for a C-section on Wednesday, the 25th.

That's all for now folks. Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's day.

It must be so hard to lose a spouse that suddenly. It's nice that he has supportive neighbours like you and Eddie.

Poor Shannon seems to have lots of anxieties to deal with right now. Hopefully Shawn has moved a bit by now.

It is amazing how dogs/animals seem to know what you need, when you need it. It will be good for your friend to have the dog back. I am sure they enjoyed the flowers, no matter what the color, it is the thought that counts anyway.

Good luck to Shannon and that baby! I pray everything will go well for them and that you will have a happy healthy baby here in no time!!
