It seems like a very short night! They came in at 6am and checked Amy. The first drug did its job and now it is time to administer the second round; there are still no signs that Levi will be here soon. They are letting her take a shower and eat a little before they begin again at 7 am. She was thrilled to see grahm crackers! She hasn’t eaten anything since lunch yesterday.
They have changed the delivery plans a little, but, as of now, no c-section. The birthing sweet is amazing. I feel like I am in a little hotel. They have a couch for me to sleep (or try to sleep) on. The nursing staff has been great! Usually everything happens in this one room (labor, delivery, recovery). Dr. Silber has decided to deliver Levi in the OR. They will let Amy labor in the room as long as possible. Then, when things are ready, she will be moved to the OR. WE only spoke to the resident doctor this morning, but this seems to just be a precautionary move.
I will try to post right before we go, so that everyone knows when it is happening. Think you all for your prayers; the countdown continues!

I gave her a hug for you. We are the only ones at the hospital. I think there are a few people coming tomorrow, and if we are still here there will be a few more on Sunday. It is a long drive for most of the people. We feel the presence of the Lord being with us. We are calm and have peace, which is supernatural.
