Action stations


Daughter1 has been admitted to hospital for an induction tomorrow morning.

This is the first time in her life that I am not by her side and I feel so restless and nervous. She has a husband now and so Mum gets to sit on the side lines, and I have to say that it is a very odd experience to have her in hospital with possible complications and not have a role to play until summoned.

I never realised until now what my own mother must have felt when my sister and I had babies, and we both had complications and she had to wait to be told what was happening. It is not in anyway a welcome role.

Hopefully it won’t be a long wait…

  1. we’re still up to our elbows in kids so I can’t imagine how it is for you. It must be hard to stand back. let us know how things go.


  2. Induced labor is terribly painful—my first one was induced, largely because it was a holiday weekend and the doctor wanted to get back to his barbecue/tennis party. I hope your daughter will be all right and her labor is a short, fast one.

    It is always hard to stand on the sidelines and watch one’s children go through the ordeals of adulthood. ((Hugs)) for Grandmother FD too.
