It is a little after 8:30 pm on Thursday night and Shannon has, in the words of her nurse, “stalled at 6 cm, which often happens…but she is doing fine and will have energy when she needs it.” Shannon’s “super puffy heart” doctor started his shift at 5 pm and will discuss with her the option of “breaking her water,” which typically moves the process forward.
