This may sound a little crazy, but the C-section has been postponed. My doctor called tonight and it turns out that she’s really sick, as well. One of her colleagues could go ahead with the surgery tomorrow morning, but since I’m still not feeling great, it makes sense to wait. This does make sense, right? This is my thought: I would rather be healthy going into surgery, and a day and a half might just buy me that health. It would be a relief not to hack up a lung on the operating table.

I plan and plan and try to control these things. Ah. When will I learn?

So it looks as though this little one will be born on Wednesday afternoon, but I’ll let you know when I have more details. And of course, I could always go into labor before then.

Thank you, as always, for all your thoughts.
