Baby David Michael Hathaway, Born Dec. 30, 2015!!!
What a blessing!
Here is a message from John & Greta Davidson:
Dear Friends,
Thank you to the many of you who have sent well-wishes. For those of you who haven’t already heard it through the parents or other family member, I paraphrase from Rebekah’s Facebook notice: David Michael Hathaway entered this world at 11:32 p.m. on Dec. 30, 2015 to proud parents Rebekah and Scott Hathaway by C-section at Kaiser Sunset Hospital, Hollywood, CA, weighing in at 10b 2oz. Baby and mother are fine, the long (about 18 hr) labor notwithstanding. Greta and I learned of the decision to do a C-section from Scott a little before 11:00 p.m. last night. We then got word from Amanda, who was on the scene to give sister support, at about 12:30 a.m. “Baby Davy is here.” Scott and Rebekah were up for a visit, even at that late hour, so we drove down to the hospital, just under 30 minutes when there is no traffic, getting there around 1:30 a.m. We had to wait a short while to see mother and child, because Rebekah was still in recovery. But around 2:00, the nurses let us go in and see David and his weary parents. Rebekah was awake and alert and David was latched on and nursing. It was one thing to be told that he was big. It was another to see him. He is fully formed! At that hour, I was too blurry to do the math in my head. I held up my iPhone and said, “Siri, what is 4.6 kilograms in pounds?” She answered, “The answer is ten-point-one-four pounds.” She then added, “And congratulations, grandpa.” (OK, I made up that last part.) We hung around for another hour, took pictures, hugged each other a lot. Suddenly, the cup of coffee I had gulped on the drive down wore off. Crashola! We did one last round of hugs and drove home. Got to bed about 4:20. We will be going back in later today. We’re a little tired, but Rebekah and Scott are the real champions. We’ll send you more news from Kaiser. Thanks again to all for your love and good thoughts.
