Maddiemoo,She has been to the hospital twice this week as she is in a lot of pain and can hardly walk.They told her the head was engaged and he does not have a lot of room.She is very tiny and only a size 2 shoe.So i think he is going to be with us over the weekend.I cant stay the night as i am covering my manager in the morning but my eldest grandaughter is staying over with them.But if it happens i will get a phone call whatever time lol.
