Bears and Epidural Time

This is Denise's Mom (also known as M) posting for Denise and Brian. The news at this point is that the contractions began to come more frequently and to hurt. So, as the Chicago Bears were getting ready to start their game, Denise got started with an epidural. She had one of the normal side effects-- a big drop in blood pressure. But the doc and nurses got that under control in no time. So, her bottom half is now very nicely numb. I will try to post again when there is more news. M
