Baby Gwen is coming

Shelly's water broke this morning at 4:30am. She started having
contractions right away. Luckily Shelly's parents were in town so we
called them to come watch the boys while we went to the hospital. We
showed up to Scripps Encinitas at about 5:30am. She was dilated to a
4-5 and 80% efaced so the nurse got her moving towards an epidural.
She had the epidural working by 6:45am. Since then she has been
continueing to have contractions but not as heavy and she hasn't
dilated past a 6. At about 9:00am the put her on pitosin to try and
move her along. It is 10:00am and she is just resting before the
action begins

we're playing with the boys and thinking about you every minute. We will head to sacrament meeting in an hour. We will say a special prayer with the boys for you and Gwen. What a wonderful day this will be to have a new grand-daughter ON MY BIRTHDAY!! :-)
