Our only granddaughter, Lily Danielle Gonzales made her début on March 6, 2017 at 8:46 P.M. at the Stanly Memorial Medical Center, Albemarle, NC, the daughter of Lisa and Steve Gonzales of Lilesville, NC.  She weighed 9 lbs. 1 oz. and 21 inches in length.

Above pix of my bride aka Joyce holding Miss Lily Danielle Gonzales when we visited with them the following morning at the Bivens Outpatient Center which is part of the large Stanly Memorial Medical Center Complex.

Lisa being our youngest daughter, waited late in life to have her son Xander McKnight Gonzales who will be eight (8) years old the 21st of this month.  Lisa is forty-four (44) years young and did not think she would have another child due to various medical issues incurred over the years, but no one earthly can predict the future.

We have five (5) Grandsons starting with the eldest; Travis Lee Huneycutt, William McKnight Porter III, Trevor Lane Huneycutt, Samuel Jacob Porter and Xander McKnight Gonzales.  My bride and myself were hoping for a Granddaughter and this certainly was a welcome shock and surprise since it looked like a Granddaughter was out of the question for the Porter family!

Lisa being forty-four years old with medical issues, this pregnancy was considered a high risk and Anson County, NC doesn't offer the medical services and expertise required, therefore she was referred to Dr. John Shen, Obstetrician-Gynecologist (OBGYN) in Albemarle.  Dr. John Shen's Office is located at the Albemarle Women's Clinic at 815 N Third St., Albemarle, NC 28001, Telephone 704-550-5260.


My brides sister, Sue Newton also from Lilesville, NC, from the very start of Lisa's pregnancy, has helped Lisa out tremendously donating her time and resources getting her to her medical appointments in Albemarle, NC and coordinating an Adcock family baby shower along with other things.

Sue Newton is a person of action, gets things done, doesn't like procrastination of any kind and a stickler for details.  Those personality and character traits are a big factor in her many successes over the years.  She doesn't just do things for recognition, but it is very hard not to notice someone who goes above and beyond what most of us do.  Sue is a natural leader and doesn't sit on the side lines and certainly does "take the bull by the horns" which I have stated before.

Below is a pix of Sue taken on Tuesday 03-07-17 at around 12:37 P. M. if the time stamp is correct on the little pocket digital Olympus Stylus 400 camera, of which I caught her off guard.  Sue had been well up before 4 A.M. on Monday morning 03-06-17, whereas she picked Lisa up around 0410 hours; 4:10 A.M. to you non-military folks getting Lisa to the hospital.  Dr. Shen was going to start the process to induce labor sometime around 0530 if memory is correct.


It was wonderful to see my bride holding and cuddling baby Lily since she wanted a Granddaughter for many decades and Wa-lah, which is actually Voila, a French word meaning "Look here."  The French do not pronounce the letter V as clearly as English speaking folks do....Ok, the English/French lesson is over.  Baby Lily is a "baby doll" for sure and I got a chance to do some bonding as well!

Lisa has a good grin going holding baby Lily also.


During our visitation with Lisa and baby Lily, I captured a few pixs of the staff that came into the room doing their various duties and asked them if they would not mind being on the World Wide Web on my personal website.  Most were very agreeable, however I think one of the RNs thought I was some kind of a freak or something because it was very evident that she was spooked at the idea and/or camera shy....grin if you must!  Lisa assured her that it was all for a good cause, since I web publish my short stories on this website, of which Lisa pulled up my website on her laptop and I showed her some of my stuff.

I also got a chance to meet Dr. John Shen, Lisa's OBGYN who dropped by a couple times.

Lisa and Baby Lily has a follow up visit in a couple days at the Albemarle Pediatrics.

I went "brain dead" and forget to get the names of the above staff members;  I believe both are Pediatricians.  Lisa informed me the Dr. on the left is Dr. Du.

I got to talk with Margaret Lindsey of House Keeping who kept the rooms in tip top shape for cleanness and a pleasure to meet and talk with!

RN Ms. Coble with a good grin going too!

Another pix of my bride aka Joyce with baby Lily.  Little booties were placed on Lily's hands to keep her from scratching herself with those tiny little fingernails. 

Sue Newton took pixs and a video clip or two of Baby Lily and will add pixs when I receive them from her.  I believe she posted a pix of Lily on Facebook as well.  I observed Sue giving baby Lily some tender love and care while I was there of which the little ones will certainly melt your heart and soul!

In closing, I am happy that the birth of Lily Danielle Gonzales went without any glitches and both Mother and Daughter are doing well, of which many prayers were certainly answered for their well being.
