From Florida

After an almost 9 hour drive - we made it!  Writing to you from the Holiday Inn-Lakeland.  This morning brought a false alarm...just as we were loading up the car to leave Amy's mom called to tell me that she had just gotten a call that Amy was having contractions and had been taken to the hospital.  We put ourselves into turbo mode and hurried to get out of the door.  About 30 minutes down the road Jennifer (Amy's mom) called and said that the contractions weren't steady enough so the doctor sent her back to Teen Challenge.  I'm glad her body is already going into "labor mode"...I hope and pray that it will make tomorrow easier on her.  I'm also glad that Lucy waited for us (and Amy's parents) because I was a little worried that I wouldn't make it in time to see her first breath in this world : )  We're still on for tomorrow morning at 6am - so it feels a little bit like Christmas Eve around here for us.  Thanks for all the calls, texts, emails, facebook comments...please forgive me if I don't get back to all of you right away...but I will at some point.  My phone service is spotty around here.  Going to go now and try to get at least a little rest for the big day!  Hopefully the next post will come with a pic of Lucy!
