What were you doing right now – exactly six years ago today?
Most of you won’t even remember. A few will. I certainly do.
If you were the nurse who made me promise not to be scared until you told me to be scared, you are telling me it’s time to be a little scared – and to call Brian.
If you were a NICU nurse on duty, you are prepping for one of your smallest arrivals – just a normal day for you, but not really.
If you were a NICU neonatologist, you are telling a new mom what to expect, knowing she can’t hear a word you are saying right now.
If you were my mom 500 miles away, you are getting a terrifying call and starting to pray.
If you were my husband, you are being told to put on dark blue scrubs and to stand “here” so you’ll be out of the way.
If you were my OB, you are making decisions fast – probably not even realizing this one would hold a record for you.
If you were me, you are scared. And numb. A little excited. But mostly unaware of what is about to happen. Really unaware.
If you were Catherine, you are thinking, “Hey, I know it’s early, but I love my Mommy and Daddy so much that I want to come out and meet them. Trust me. It’ll be alright.”
And it is.
Happy Birthday Catherine!
