Not yet!

We were scheduled to be at the hospital at 8:00 this morning to be induced, but they called at 6:30 and said that they had some people come in overnight and they didn't expect for a bed to be available for an hour or so.

So, we're sitting here waiting for the phone to ring, and then we'll be heading to the hospital.

Gee Ryan, the hospital sounds a little like Amtrak! But, this hot weather/power issues caused our L&D floor to operate at 30% above normal last week. I took your advice to the original poster and booked a backup ride to Chicago on July 20 via Capital Limited. But, I am still hoping to take the long way via Cardinal.

Hope your baby girl and her mom get along fine.

I wish your wife, the baby and you the very best!!

Thanks to the mods for breaking this out into a separate thread - I wasn't sure where to start one!

So I was up at 4:30 yesterday morning all the way though to about 6:00 this morning.

After about 3 hours of sleep, I feel like I just did an around the country trip in coach! :D

What's the minimum age to sign up for an AGR account? :D

Whatever siding I'm sitting on!
Congrats Ryan!


I do not think there is a minimum age for AGR. I think there is to sign up online, but I don't believe there is one if you sign up via phone! When's her first trip?
It's never too early to start!

Well seeing as how she rides for free until she's two, not much point in trying to setup an AGR account to collect zero points per trip prior to her turning 2.

Hey, Ryan, are you getting hit by storms again? :(
I saw some lightning out the hospital room windows last night and heard a little bit of thunder, but things didn't look too bad. Looks like it's much cooler outside today, I guess I'll find out when it's time to leave later today. Haven't been outside since Saturday afternoon when we got here.

It felt much better this morning when I left for work. Still supposed to get to the upper 80's today, but the humidity is supposed to drop as the day progresses.

Congratulations to you and your family. I guess a decision down the line is whether your family will travel in the Family Bedroom or two Roomettes :unsure: Any thoughts on which is the leading candidate?
