Wes's Birth

On The Way.

It’s almost time! It’s almost time! MrZ asked if I was excited and I said, “More nervous than excited. ‘Cause since I’m going under the knife the FEAR is a bit overwhelming.” That is a mild understatement. I’m suddenly TERRIFIED. Seriously. Terrified.

But – that’s beside the point. By the end of the day, barring any bizarre and unforeseen circumstances, AndyZ will be here. Woo Hoo!

I’m scheduled to be sliced and diced at 12 noon CST. Of course they’ll push us back for any emergency surgeries, but I’m on the books for noon.

Once we get to the hospital, I’m guessing the easiest way I’ll have to update is through twitter, so feel free to follow me there. I’ll be using my cell to text, and it doesn’t receive the responses, so don’t think I’m ignoring you if you ask a question I don’t answer. Remember also – that the bottom of my blog has the most recent flickr photos from MrZ and LilZ. They may be able to send pictures to flickr sooner than I can. Otherwise? I’ll blog as soon as I get settled into a room and can move enough to get to the laptop. In other words? Some time this evening. I can’t wait to show you pictures of our new little man and I can’t tell you how uplifting it is knowing there are so many of you as excited as we are.

Wish us luck, I’ll see you on the flip side. Let’s hope for some awesome Morphine-Inspired blog entries!
