I'm a little confused~after patiently waiting and spending over 3 hours with a photographer; they didn't run the story today.  I'm not sure if they decided to wait until my follow up visit but I figured someone would have told me!  The problem now is I have no idea if it has already ran or if it will run in the next few days; unless I buy every paper, I won't know it.  Apparently, they don't put all the stories online.

Were going to try to get ahold of the reporter tomorrow to see what happened. 

I'm so disappointed.  I was really looking foward to this :(

The reporter wasn't sure when they were going to run it, he said he was writing the story on Tuesday and that he anticipated that it would run this Sunday.  Then, I spoke with a guy that I'm guessing was some sort of coordinator or something because he set up the time that the photographer came; but also said something about running it on Sunday or possibly waiting until my next appointment (Feb 14) to run it.  That was so I could get the final word on whether or not they would in fact let me vbac. 

Then he said maybe they would do two stories, the original on Sunday, then a follow up when we went to the appt on the 14th.  Then, as he was scheduling the photographer to come, he said she would come on Thursday to get the pictures for the Sunday run.  So, I assumed that they had decided that they would run it on Sunday.

When the photographer came, she didn't appear to be in the loop as to when it was running, she was just there getting background info and taking pictures.  She asked me if she could come to the follow up appointment and asked if I would mind her coming to the birth.  I actually don't mind and called the Birth center to make sure they didn't have a problem with her coming. 

I'm going to call the reporter and email the photographer to see what's up.  I would assume that they wouldn't have wasted their time if they weren't going to run the story?  I dunno~i'm clueless about how newspapers work.
