I am so sorry I have not posted. We got the call from Ronnie on Tuesday evening (August 11th...her due date) that Jessica was having contractions 10 minutes apart. He was saying they may end up at the hospital before the night was over because her contractions were becoming quite painful and he wasn't sure how much longer she would be able to tolerate them. The next call I got was at about 9:00 that evening saying they were on their way to the hospital. We waited to hear from him that they were keeping her because we had gone the week before and they ended up sending her home. It was about 30 minutes later that I couldn't stand it any longer....I called him to find out what was going on and he said they were checking here at that moment. I held on the line and he told me she was dilated to a three and that they were keeping her. So my husband and I got in the car and headed to the hospital. I called Kristina and Josh and told them and they too left to head to the hospital.
Long story short....after a long night at the hospital and my husband having to leave at 7:30am so he could go home and get some sleep since he had to work that night....Candyce was born at 10:49am. She weighed 7 pounds and was 20 inches long. Jessica did great and God blessed us with a very healthy and beautiful baby. Jessica and Candyce are doing wonderful and are now Ronnie, Jessica and Candyce are home starting their new lives together as a family of three.
I will post pictures when I have time. I have been up for 35 hours this time and was up for 39 hours the night of the hospital stay. I have enjoyed getting to hold our granddaughter and watch Jessica and Ronnie love on her and care for her. She already has them both wrapped around her little finger.
Please pray for Jessica's recuperation from the delivery as of course she is quite sore. Check back for pictures soon.
