Going into labor is one of the scariest things one can experience whether you’re the mom or the dad. I guess much more for the mom.
This day could probably be summed up as the best and the worst.
My wife is going into labor and I have an unfinished task for GammaWeb. To put things in perspective, my wife comes first and then my job.
So we rushed to the hospital.
It was a struggle keeping calm while driving. I just wanted to get to the hospital as fast as possible and not get into an accident.
Waiting at the Emergency room is scary when there’s an old woman in a wheelchair who is showing signs of distress and coughing up a storm.
I did not dare to sit down in any one of the seats reserved for patients waiting to be served.
COVID 19 has made me paranoid and borderline hypochondriac.
I had to leave for a few minutes to get some papers in order and when I got back to the ER, my wife had been wheeled into the Delivery Room.
Going deeper into the hospital’s facilities has me on edge.
I had to go get a blood test and an X-ray. Blood test came out ok but my X-ray results weren’t as good.
Something was wrong with my lungs.
Yeah, more than 20 years of smoking cigarettes will do that to you.
I’m glad I quit smoking. Who knows what my lungs would’ve looked like had I kept it up.
Finally got a room and was told to wait.
How can I wait? I was so stressed out. My wife was going into labor and I was told to sit still and twiddle my thumbs.
That’s why I wrote this blog entry down.
The room was nice. The staff was nice. I just wish I had something to complain about.
So I waited.
Oh wait… let me complain about the TV remote control. It was so confusing. Other than that, it’s like being in a hotel.
Time to get some work done for TheAutoSunday.
