Wow, I knew that anytime your wife is pregnant, anything could
happen, but this is too much!
I was rousted by wife last night at 1 am. She said it was time and
WAKE UP! I quickly called a friend to watch out sons who were long
asleep and we proceeded to head south a 1:20. Here's the deal. He
live in Saratoga Springs, but wife's doctor is a resident at St.
Peter's hospital 40 miles away. Our last two births were very close.
Just about registering and then my wife giving birth. No long labor
That all changed this morning. Even doing 85 down the Northway at
1:30am and making it to Albany in 15 minutes, my wife's contractions
at 2 minutes apart could only mean one thing. That baby was coming
Mile Marker 1.5 will always be special to us. That's where a NYS
State Trooper and myself delivered out 8 pound baby girl. The funny
thing is that I worked all day Sunday and my co-workers told me to
name my baby after the Trooper that was gonna help me. Who knew this
would come true!
Well, we didn't name the baby after the nice (female) trooper, but she
was very excited and even paid a visit to us at the hospital. She
took pictures of the first baby she ever delivered...
It's time for me to get some sleep after being awake since yesterday
morning at 6 (save for a couple hours here and there) and mother and
baby Gianna Kathryn DiCarlo are all doing well!
Now you can say you know someone who's delivered their baby on the
side of the road. Oh, it was 1:54 am on Monday August the 14th...
