She's Arrived!

It happened on 10-02-2011 at 12:21 pm. Second grandbaby came kicking and squalling into the world at six pounds and three and a half ounces and a month early. Sadly her lungs needed a little more help and she had to be transferred to another hospital an hour away. It looks like my daughter will be discharged today so she can be reunited with the baby. She felt no contractions until the end when the baby was slipping out.

My eldest daughter and I had our work schedules covered so we could be here for her. My husband needed today's morning shift covered so he could be there for the grandbaby. His new boss complained and said he couldn't do it. My husband said his grandbaby was in the hospital and it was important. He never takes time off from work unless it is vital. The boss complained and said it was a huge bother, then said his boss was not going to be happy but they would try to cover it and call him back. They never called back, so my husband had to call them instead and they said the owner hired someone new to cover the shift. We'll see if he still has his job when he goes back.


  1. congratulations!!!!!!! I will keep you and your family in my prayers for her continued good health!!!!

    As for you husbands boss...shame on him


  2. Congrats on the new blessing! I hope your daughter knows what a lovely family she has protecting and caring for her and her baby!

    Your husband's boss did not deserve all the hard work your hubby did for them. With his kind of rare work ethic, he will be able to find an even better job.

    All of you have all of us rooting for you!!!

  3. Yay! Congratulations on your new granddaughter ! I pray your DH still has a job, shame on his boss :(

  4. Congratulations on the newest addition to your family, hopefully baby girl will be home soon. Take care.

  5. Congratulations! Welcome to the world, baby girl.

    (And shame on your husband's boss!)

  6. Congratulations on the arrival of your granddaughter. My mother said waiting on grandchildren was the most exhausting Your husband's boss is mean-spirited. A pox on him!

  7. Congratulations!

    What wonderful news. And hopefully your DH has a job still. What an awful thing for his boss to do!

  8. Congrats on the new grandbaby! May your new granddaughter and her mom recover quickly.
    I'm hoping and praying your husband's work situation turns out alright.

  9. Welcome to your new granddaughter!And I can't believe the boss was so hard up that they couldn't cut your husband some slack.

  10. Allow me to add:
    My congratulations on your new blessing
    My condemnation of DH's boss. Seriously? With all the extra effort your husband puts out, he couldn't give him a little break for a family medical emergency? Sheesh.
