nugget can't wait

Hello all, this is Ashley's husband, Glenn. Just a quick update... Last night Ashley had to be rushed to the hospital because of side-effects from the preeclampsia. We thought it might be labor at first, but that turned out not to be the case yet. Her blood pressure was dangerously elevated and her blood platelets were dangerously low, so they decided to induce this evening to be safe. Fortunately both her blood pressure and her blood platelets have improved, and the baby's signs are all great. Everything seems to be moving along smoothly and Huxley Wild English should be making his outerworldly debut sometime late tonight or tomorrow.

Best of luck to all of you! I delivered early with preeclampsia with my oldest child, and while it can be scary (and not at all how you planned it!) everything turned out perfectly. Can't wait to hear about Nugget's debut :-)
