water get no enemy...
it was dope. the nurse placed on the card "B-boy Rodriguez" .... i was like , "is that foreshadowing?" but his fingers are long like a Djs (like DJ Spooky's or Roc Raiders)
well how did it all happen? well Sunday, i was at work. i had like 30 minutes left. my wife called me:
"My water broke!" SHe said
"What! it broke!" I said. "well i get off in like 30 minutes and i will be home soon"
i got home around 3:30pm and AUnt S, Mama E, and Lah were there. i was like dag, they beat me here. we packed and headed out. we got to Depauls and our midwife came through. the nurses were great (way better than at chesapeake general.. those guys really suck). Mama E took our daughter to her house to watch overnight.
we were told that the baby had an irregular heartbeat. they never heard of something like that so they moved us into another room to see if it was the machine. it still came out the same. we were shooked but i knew things would work out. they wanted to hurry her labor along so they gave her Pontassin (did i spell that right?) . Aunt Lu, who is practicing to be a midwife showed up as well.
anyway the baby came faster than expected. my wife did a great job. ya'll should have seen her. the nurses and midwife were impressed. I think having all that female energy did it. cause we had a midwife, Aunt S and Aunt Lu. that really helped. i let Aunt S cut his cord since she missed our daughters entrance into this earth.
His heartbeat was still irregular but better. so they wanted to watch him. so he stayed in the nursery overnight. my wife went and breastfed when she could. we arrived home last night on tuesday. Elevation came through to help. it was all dope. we had so many visitors and calls. it was bananas. but we love it and appreciate it.
mom and baby are doing great....
the only thing is
someone keeps stealing or newspaper!!!! but life is bueno...
for real. i can't wait....and we back in full effect.
