7:30pm - Rachel runs to Subway while I'm giving Ezra a bath and getting him ready for bed.
8:00pm - Rachel's contractions are about 15 mins apart, we start watching Heroes.
8:30pm - Rachel's contractions go to 5 mins apart for about an hour...PAIN ONSET!!!
9:30pm - Car is loaded and house is ready but Rach is in too much pain to move...
9:40pm - Helping Rachel to car...car is running in the street, Rachel screaming, I'm waiting on friend to arrive to stay with sleeping toddler in the house....TENSE!!!!
9:45pm - Friend arrives, and we flee towards the hospital...running red lights, passing cars while honking and flying down the road!
9:50pm - Arrive at hospital, frantically try to convince ER staff that baby is IMMINENT!!
9:53pm - Rachel is lifted out of car, Levi's head is almost out!
9:55pm - Arrive in hospital room, nurses everywhere, no Dr. in sight! PUSH RACH PUSH!!!
10:01pm - Levi Olen Henslee arrives!
16 minutes after we left our house Levi was born! Rach's water broke in the car and she was in INTENSE PAIN! I was freaking out! Had we not lived so close to the hospital, yours truly would have delivered his second child in the car on the side of the road! God is Good!
Thank you friends and family who have given encouragment and love. We're excited about this little guy....he was ready to come OUT!!!
