1:30 pm

Sarah had another exam. She is at 8 cm. Contractions every few minutes or so, especially if she is standing up. She is having pain and she is singing through it.

Somewhat, ironically, the cable showed up to hook up the cable. I bet he'll have a story to tell tonight.

We are singing, waiting, and hoping. Sarah is doing an incredible job!!

You are almost there Sarah! I called your mom and interupted her with a client.

Thank you Trish for keeping us up-to-date!

I'm pacing my office floor!

You're so close! Every contraction brings you closer to your sweet babe. Look at all the good work that is now behind you - wow!

I'm so proud of you, Sarah. I'm proud you, whatever happens.

That poem: incredible.

Way to go, Sarah! Hang in there, breathe deeply, sing strong. WOOOHOOO!

So exciting...

and I love Rilke. What a wonderful, auspicious birthdate. (But any day would be wonderful)

You, darkness, that I come from
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone
and then no one outside learns of you.

But the darkness pulls in everything-
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them! -
powers and people-

and it is possible a great presence is moving near me.

I have faith in nights.

This is almost as exciting as my own recent labor! :) The poem is perfect.

Prayers continuing...

I have been calling home from work for updates...When I got home, I went straight to the computer....I remain on pins and needles (like everyone else).

Bill Cosby just popped into my head "push it out-shove it out-wayyyy out"

We are all cheering for you Sarah!
