safe arrival

It was icy and snowing and the driving directions I printed out were almost indecipherable and the bridge was closed. By the time I finally made it to the hospital, the doctor was already telling Kyrie to push. And everything went perfectly and the baby's asleep and pretty soon I'll be asleep too.
