I was at work at Q13 getting ready to do the 9pm newscast when Leah called to tell me that it was time to leave. She was very calm so I thought it was a false alarm. I started to get up when she told me that her friend, Jenn, had already picked her up and they were headed to the hospital. I knew that I had a little time to spare, so I put together my timesheet and made sure that my replacement was comfortable to mix the show. I ended up beating them to the hospital by about five minutes.
On the drive over I heard the new Black Eyed Peas song “I Gotta Feeling”. When I heard the line “tonight’s gonna be a good night” I started to feel that this was really going to happen tonight. I was also warned to be aware of the full moon which was just one day away. I met up with Leah and Jenn at the hospital and she delivered our son less than three hours later with an emergency c-section. I was scared out of my mind.
