One year ago today, we were sitting in the emergency room at St. Vincent hospital. Rachel arrived there via an ambulance ride at 2 AM, and I followed shortly thereafter in the car with a 5 week old Gabriel.
Everything turned out fine, but it was one of the scariest experiences of my life. You can read all about it in this post.
I told Rachel that if she wants some excitement on her birthday this year, she should just ask. No need to do something so dramatic.
