This is a picture of "mission control," inspired by Steve Post's comment on our earlier post.A little more info: Rachel's contractions got quite painful for a little while, then she got the epidural. Now she's laying down smiling and saying things like "I like drugs." We just started a little bit of pitocin, so we expect the baby's arrival between 7pm and 9pm, give or take 7 hours.The anestaesiologiist (sp?) was a weird bird. He kind of ignored Rachel who was in obvious pain and insisted on talking to me about Apple computers and Civil War historical fiction. He also told a joke about the definition of a "double blind" study: two Orthopedic Surgeons discussing an echocardiogram. He thought it was even funnier when I told him my dad was one.
