Long Beach Memorial Hospital *UPDATED*

Rachel and I were just talking last night about getting over to the hospital next week for the tour of the baby area.  Little did we know we would be getting a private tour in no time!  Last night we ended up heading to the emergency room with a concern, thinking they’d just check her out and send her home.  Better safe than sorry we figured.

They sent us to Labor and Delivery where they hooked her up on some montiors.  We found out that unbeknownst to her, she was actually having contractions like every 2-4 minutes.  They ended up giving her a shot to relax her, and then wanted to keep her monitored.  So we spent the night here last night.  She’s been a lot better since the shot, so we’re still here waiting for some check ups and they’re keeping an eye on her.

It seems like it won’t be too major, but your prayers for Rachel would be greatly appreciated.  Luckily, I was able to get hooked up with wifi in here, so I’m able to be a little productive.  Right now we’re really just doing a whole lot of "hurry up and wait. " So hopefully we’ll find something more out soon.  Thanks for the prayers!


We’re out of there now and things are all good.  Rachel just needs to stay hydrated and be aware of what her body’s doing. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

As a side note, it actually was kinda nice to get an idea what the place is like though.  The nurses and doctors were great.  It was a bit awkward listening to our neighbor have a baby.  It was almost ike being at a live taping of a TLC show or something.
