1a) starts feeling better.

My mom's cancer seems to be improving. The tumors were wrapped around her Syatic nerve causeing a great deal of pain, but that pain has reduced. Unfortunatly,
she has become extremely weak and unable to use her legs, so they have admited her in the hospital for a closer watch. Long term, they expect complete remission of the cancer, but we will have to see if she will get her legs back.
In August we waited quite impatiently for our son to enter this world. About 11pm on August 10th I experienced my first contraction, An hour later I woke Srikant up to get his opinion on if we should get going to the hospital. We calmly got the girls up and into the car. When we arrived at the Belgian hospital we signed in and went up to maternity. The nurse took me in to examine me and was shocked that I was already over 8cm dilated. From there we called my friend Jamie to come pick up the girls. At about 1:30 am on Monday, August 11, 2008 Solomon Victor Mantravadi shot out into the world much to the nurse's dismay with no doctor yet present. Thus Prayer Requests 1b, 4a, & 4b had been answered.
I spent five uncomfortable days in the hospital. Anyone who is stupid enough to think socialized medicine in the United States is a good idea has never spent a week in a hospital where they already have “universal health care.” We as a nation are comfortably spoiled and could not handle, now should we have to, such poor care.
God Bless and Happy New Year!
