One Year Ago Today: How Rachel Spent Her Birthday in the Hospital

Today is my wife Rachel’s birthday. We’re going out to breakfast at Biscuits Cafe, then tonight, we’re getting together with some friends. I got a couple dozen from Saint Cupcake to celebrate. 🙂

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. 🙂
