Just one paragraph that I had written up already from yesterday:
Morning is here! We had our good hotel breakfast again and have begun our 2 1/2 hour drive south from Zaporyzhya to Berdyansk before 8 a.m. It is more overcast and gray today. Cozy weather with moisture in the air but no rain yet. I feel a high level of eager anticipation mixed with peace. I suppose we could liken it to a birth after months of pregnancy and labor. Today is the scheduled induction or c-section. Not exactly sure of all the details between here and there, but that the outcome will make it all worthwhile. I guess I had an epidural too since I am resting, reading, and writing these last few hours.
