On Our Way

This is Bart. Janssen has been having regular contractions since yesterday afternoon. They’ve steadily increased in strength through the night and are making her lean over in pain and anguish. So we’re on our way to the hospital, right now.

    Hooray!! Hope all goes all well. If I hadn't seen this post first, I would have responded to the previous one suggesting a hot fudge sundae (Gr. Harris's method). We love you.
