Three years ago today, I was awaken by the house phone. My sister in law called at 3am to inform me that she was driving herself to the hospital because she was in labor. My brother had to stay home with my older nephews and they were trying to get my parents to go over to watch the boys. Well that never happened.
I got my preggo self out of bed and dressed and drove over to the hospital to be with her. Interestingly enough, I had never been to the birth of my two older nephews. However, I wanted to be present for this one; maybe because I was pregnant with Gabby at the time. So there I was with my sister in law and all her co-workers; she is a labor and delivery nurse at Memorial Hospital. I did all that was required of me and just pass 9am, Drake Evan Rodriguez was born.
I had the privilege of cutting the umbilical cord.
Happy Birthday Drakie Poo! We love you lots and we hope you enjoy your Spider Man birthday party on Saturday!
Gabby, Ari, Titi and Tio Jorge
