First off, it's Patton, like General George Patton. It's not Peyton, Peyten, Payton, or Payten. I have heard his name pronounced wrong more in his 2 1/2 short weeks of life than I ever imagined. I know that Peyton is a VERY popular name, but can't people read anymore? Sorry for the rant, just wanted to clear that up :)
On with the story of Patton. Feel free not to read if you don't want to hear most of the details, remember, this is for My memory/ blog book. I was due on August 22nd, but since he hadn't made his arrival, my Dr. chose to induce on August 25th. I was very nervous and very scared. Micah came on his own and I had heard about inductions that could take up to 48 hours! I DO NOT like hospitals one little bit, I almost dislike them as much as funerals, and did not want to stay at the hospital for 48 hours prior to having a baby, and then 24 hours more after. Our appt. was at 8:30 on Wednesday morning. We dropped Micah off at school and headed for the hospital. After checking in they finally got us into a room and began the induction around 11:00. Everything was fine and dandy until maybe 2:00. That's when the pain began. My goal going in was to get the epidural if I needed it, but to wait as long as I could before I got it. It was 4:00 when I ended up finally asking for it. This time around I was 6cm. I was 7cm when I went to the hospital with Micah. But I felt like I had waited long enough and wanted to ease a little bit of the pain. Dr. Azizi was the anesthesiologist and he made my day when he entered them room. He gave me the epidural and within 20 minutes I was in Heaven. I felt numbness all the way to my toes, it was wonderful. I never felt that with Micah, with him, they had turned it down and I felt pain still. This labor was Totally different. From 4-6 I was feeling fine. The family came, we laughed and had a good ole' time. 6:00 I began pushing, 6:48 Patton Brooks joined us. I joke that if I had my pregnancy with Micah, and my labor of Patton, then maybe we would have had 3 or 4 children, but I am not a fan of being pregnant at all, so unless God has other plans, The Robinson Family is complete.
