  Kristen & Don Had Their Baby!!

How exciting--Kristen and Don (Terry's sister and her husband) had their baby this afternoon! He's named Oliver William. I like that name.

Now HOW they had the baby is even more exciting than usual--he was born on the side of the road! Kristen's contractions started coming fast really early, and they accidentally took a wrong turn on the way to the hospital. When Kristen informed Don that the baby was not going to wait until they found the hospital, Don pulled over and flagged down a passing car so they could call an ambulance. Fortunately, the paramedics arrived in time to help Kristen deliver her son, and both mother and baby are doing well.

Wow! They live in a small rural town in upstate New York. I told Don that if someone delivered a baby on one of the dirt roads around here, Channel 29 news would have a camera crew on them in time for the 5 o'clock segment. Don hoped it wouldn't come to that, but he wouldn't be surprised if it was in the newspaper.

What an exciting day, and I'm just an aunt.

Before I got the call from Don, I thought I was having an exciting day already since my long-anticipated new golf driver arrived, and I've been looking forward to hitting the range this evening. But that's nothing now. I guess I had lost perspective on what really exciting is since my life is so uneventful. . .
