While Logan Henry was due on the 31st of January, we were happily surprised when we got an early arrival. Mary went for her regular weekly checkup, and they saw her blood pressure was somewhat elevated. She was sent to Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, to have some further test completed. The results showed that she had Preeclampsia, which is a only stopped with delivery. They induced Mary, and by 5:30pm the first contractions had started.
12 hous later, at 5:30am, Mary had dilated to 9 and half cm. The nurse had her do a test push at 6:15, but then she found out the OB/GYN was performing a c-section and Mary had to just hold on till he was done. So finally at 7:10am she got to start pushing. After 30 minutes of pushing, the OB/GYN came in and told us, in 10 minutes we would have a baby. Well, he was only off by 4 minutes. At 7:54am on January 21st, Logan Henry Mullins was born.
Logan Henry Mullins was born at 7 lbs 11 ozs and 21 inches long. The OB/GYN told Mary, "momma, here is your baby." They had a couple of nurses standing by, since Mary had been on magnesium-sulfate to prevent her from having seizures from her elevated blood pressure. They quickly looked him over, and all was just fine.
We spent 2 full days at the hospital, and by the time Saturday rolled around we were very ready to leave. Finally around 3:30pm or so, we headed home.
