A Rose is born!

Born June 2004 (this photo is from about 20 minutes after birth)

After being nine days past our estimated due date, Lana went into the hospital to be induced. We were due to arrive at the hospital at 7:00am, so David had organized to wake up at 6:00 am. Unfortunately, he looked at the Australian time on his watch and didn’t adjust properly so we awoke at 4:00am! Lana was very gracious and didn’t hit David. From the time we began at about 7:30am Lana’s contractions slowly increased. Eventually at 5:15pm Rose graced us with her presence.

We were very impressed with Doctor Karisny and the local Union County General Hospital. After our experience with the emergency ward we were expecting the worst. As it was, all of the labour ward staff were great and greatly helped us during the day.
