I remember it like it was yesterday. My husband was coming home late after studying while at Naval Postgraduate school in Monterey, CA. I stood up from the couch to greet him and my water broke. I wasn't prepared. I was 36 weeks along. I called the hospital and they ask me if I went to the bathroom instead. I told them I knew the difference. So off to the hospital we go. Meanwhile, I am busy having contractions while the hospital is trying to figure out how they could airlift me to San Francisco where they have a preemie unit. I didn't think we had time!! About 2 1/2 hours after arriving at the hospital, Lauren joined our family.
Lauren is smart, unique and very talented. She is a wonderful artist. She is getting a degree in Environmental Science from Tulane.
