Alone Again.

He has to offically report back to 29 palms on Monday. So he took today to travel back and tomorrow to adjust to Cali time. This morning, he was sitting at the computer and I missed him already. He kept saying that he'll be back in November, all I could think about was that he wasn't going to be here. I can't wait to have him offically home. I would have never let him go if I knew that he was going to be away for over a year. BOOOO! Tonight is going to be very hard. It's the first night with out him and with a newborn.

One Month Later...

Wow.. its been a month. I am a great big reason why its been a month. Let's catch up.
Well until the 5th, the only way i was able to see my husband was thru webcam.As of the 4th he was granted a leave to be home until the 26th. YAY! So I decided to go on Maternity Leave the day he touched down in NYC. Plus, I was very pregnant and work was near impossible.
September 10Th, I was my crabbiest day ever. I just wasn't in the mood for anything. So I knew that something was going to down that day. I carried the day on like normal. I picked up Big Bea from school and I notice it took me about 5 minutes to walk one block. Hmmmm. I kept things moving. For dinner that night I wanted diner food. So we packed up the kids and journeyed to the Pelham Bay Diner. I ordered the Lemon and Herb chicken. Yummy. As I placed my fork down when I finished my meal, I stated " We are dropped the kids off and going to the hospital tonight."

I arrived to the hospital at about 6:30 - 7pm. I was happy to hear the voice of my doctor. She checked me out and I was 4cm. She decided to induce me. Those were the greatest words ever. I am sure if she wasn't here, I would have been sent home by someone else.
Just before midnight my water was broken for me. After that, bring on the contractions. They were coming fast. By 2 am was asking for epidural. I didn't get it until 3 hours later. BOOO! I almost couldn't get it because I was 7 cm before they give it to me. I love drugs. Many may disagree but that's your choice.
So I slept a good two hours. Just after 7 am, I started texting my great friend Roxanne. All of a sudden, pressure came out of no where. Alyson was coming and she was coming fast. The doctor on call wasn't even in the room when she came out. They couldn't even break down the bed fast enough. All I remember in the minute was the staff screaming at me not to push and I'm screaming back at them I AM NOT PUSHING!
September 11, 2008 at 7:49 AM Little Al was born. At 8lbs 2.5 oz 19.25 ins.

I must say Little Al is a mellow child. We are blessed!

The days go by very fast and the next thing I know, he'll be gone again. Just counting the days until he is here for good.
