Getting Closer

Just finished going on a 2-hour walk, it wasn't really that far but Patty isn't walking all that fast right now. We took a stroll up to Trout Lake for an ice cream and back, about 20 blocks in total. Along the way her contractions started, and by the time we got home they were seven minutes apart.

All I can do is provide as much support as possible, but there's no way I can relate. Patty was in intense pain the whole walk and the best I could muster was an ice cream headache.

She's hanging in there though. I'm really proud of how she's handling all this.
