Touching of Hearts

I had a delivery the other night which touched my heart. On first glance you might think the dad was a real toughass. He had a straggly long chin beard and was covered with tatoo's. Now don't think I'm anti tat..cause I have one! Ha! Bet ya didn't know!

But this dad looked very rough. But was polite and softspoken. Mom ended up pushing but not able to pass the baby under the arch. You L/D nurses know what I mean. So after one very long icky decel and then bradycardia, off to the OR we go at 3am.

Surgery went well. Baby boy was glorious!! Apgars 8-9. Perfect.

But what touched me was the dad. Once his little boy took his first breath and was being looked at by Peds; I looked over at dad. He was wiping his eyes and lovingly staring at his son. I told him to come over and see his boy. Dad was just full of tears and apologized for it. "Ohh no" I said. "You shed all the tears you want. You've just become a daddy and your life will Never be the same..."

Small silly post perhaps..but a moment in my job that touched my heart. It's why I love my job =)

Looking Back this Am..'re gonna miss this..

.. I am going thru all my old photo's looking for some to save on my Flickr page. I came across some really sweet photo's..which makes me sorta sad. My kids have grown up!
You guys with the little ones hear me and here me good! They Do grow up fast. And time Does fly. It might sound trite now. Or you say Ohh Jody they're sometimes just driving me Crazy!
But before you know it they'll be big. And moved out. And on their own. And yes! Thats what is suppose to happen I know! But sometimes I shed a small tear, wishing I could relive those days of young motherhood.

So today, hold your babies close. Even if they're teens. And tell them you love them. And take loads of photo's =).

"You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this"

End of Summer Blues..

Gosh I hate to see summer go. Yeah I know. I'm tired of the heat too. But there is magic in the summer which is gone the rest of the year.
I will eat these blueberries tonight and celebrate my summer.
I encourage you to do the same. And post a photo of something you love about summer. I'd love to see!
