Monday is the day*

Yup. The doctor told us that if my wife doesn't have the baby this weekend, they're going to induce her on Monday.

The nurse popped her head in once to tell us the doctor had been called down to do a delivery.


A while later she came in again, apologized for the delay and, almost as an aside, mentioned they'd scheduled our induction for Monday.


Apparently she was under the impression we'd already been informed of this. We hadn't. Sure enough, we're heading to the hospital Monday morning if the little tyke doesn't decide to come on his own, sooner.

It came as a bit of a shock. We actually have a deadline. "You mean, he's actually going to show up??"

Reality has just come extremely close to setting in.

Of course, thoughts and prayers are more than welcome. We'll keep you posted.
