This week's prompt is Ready.
I spent two days at the hospital this past week. Our daughter is expecting her first baby and we thought that it was time for her to join us. But, our grand-daughter evidently is not ready to join the real world yet. Our daughter was attached to a monitor and had several ultrasounds. There was some concern about the levels of the amniotic fluid and there were thoughts of inducing labor. The doctor finally decided the baby wasn't ready yet so she is just monitoring the pregnancy very closely at this point. The doctor felt that the benefits of the baby incubating a bit longer outweighed the risks of the low amniotic fluid. Our daughter is happy because she wasn't ready yet either.
Kate is also joining with Myquillyn, of the Nesting Place in the 31 Day Challenge. This is where the Nester challenges you to write each day in the month of October on any subject of your choosing.
Last year, I wrote 31 Days of Dealing with Dementia/Alzheimer's Disease. It was a very popular topic and I continued writing about this and even started a new page that I named Life with Mom. This year I think my topic will be Life with Baby since she will be arriving any day now and October is going to be a month of many firsts!!
