Ya, about those dock lines….

Monday I received a call from our new DockMaster in reference to our dock lines.   We need to replace them as they are not acceptable. 

We noticed it Sunday moving the Bell, the cheap Chinese anchor rode I was using as docklines had degraded in the sun and are now falling to pieces.  

I ordered a new set of 5 double braid black lines to replace them.  Seems that black is a unpopular color for dock lines as they were 30% the price of the blue or gold colored lines.   

Amazon delivered the lines Wednesday afternoon.  Lori and I were going to run out to Titusville Friday after work and I was to replace the lines and then we were going to have dinner at Chef Larry’s before going home as we planned to really start prepping the house for baby girls arrival. 

Thursday afternoon we went to the doctors office for Lori and Baby’s biweekly checkup.    

Baby gets 20 minutes on the monitor. 

  
Here you see a heart rate of 173.  Baby is having a kick and push on mommy fest. Really living it up and healthy and active.  Her rate is usually about 123 or so. 

Loris blood pressure (BP) was high and Doc worried about preeclampsia   decided it was best to send us to the hospital.  Winnie Palmer here in Orlando, they are the #2 hospital in the nation for baby deliveries. 

So here we are in still at the hospital , it is Saturday morning, and they have Lori’s BP under control with medication.  With the baby being 36+ weeks along they are working towards getting Lori to deliver conventionally thru the use of drugs in the next day or so.  Baby girl is fine but the fear is if Lori’s condition worsens it will endanger the baby.  

  Hospital Room with a view. 
The food is great and the room comfortable, I even have a Murphy bed to crash on at night. 

  They even have really nice water cups/bottles. 
Next stop for us,  parenthood,  and about those docklines………
