Menopause ..... Or ??????

So here is the funny story. My only Sister, Ellen, turned 40 last summer. Since she is 12 years younger than me, I felt it my duty to send several funny cards to commemorate the occasion.
A few months later she called me up and asked what it was like when I went into menopause. I responded that I hadn't gone into menopause yet, I was probably pre-menopausal.
Her response was, "Oh, Oh!"
I told her to tell me what was going on.
Upon hearing her "symptoms" I suggested that it sounded to me like she was pregnant. She said;

"I CAN'T BE PREGNANT !!! . . . . . I'M 40 YEARS OLD !!!"

During the remainder of our conversation, she kept repeating this same phrase. It was really funny !!!
Nine months later . . . this is the result . . . . . . . .

10 lbs 1 oz. (OUCH!!!) 21 1/2 inches long

Daniel Shawn Herbert

He was delivered a week late, by C- Section (DOUBLE OUCH !!!).
He is healthy and happy and Ellen is recovering, slowly, but surely!!!
Grandma Garner (our Mom) is flying out to help tomorrow and I'm so glad for both of them, that they will have this next week together!!! ( And just a little jealous that I can't be there too!)

Huge Congratulations go out to the Entire Family!!!

The really good news is that with older siblings ranging from 4 yrs. old to 16, they will be a huge help to Mom and Dad as they raise this big surprise.
(You can't really call him a little surprise - can you???)
