Another night down

Jodie came to see last night and brought along a basket of the most amazing strawberries. She and Karen are my community garden plot neighbors, and they have a strawberry patch there. SO yummy. Cant wait to much the onese she left me for breakfast.

The good news is we made it another night. The even better news (for me) is that I slept pretty well. As has become our custom already in this short stay, Kelvin tucked me in around 10 when the nurse came to hook me up to the monitors. I was awake until she came to free me at 11 and I went almost immediately to sleep. I was able to stay pretty much asleep when she put me back on at 3am and I was sleep when the resident came by around 5:15.

I did ask him about false positives, but he assured me they did three different types of tests and they were all positive. He was really nice about it; I’m sure I am not the first to lay here and wonder if there was a mistake.  I just want to be assured that delivering the bee early is really necessary. The thought of wires coming out of my bee’s head and being hooked up to everything is more than I can really wrap my head around right now so I’m trying not to think about that until it’s a reality.

So we will see what Saturday brings; hopefully just a few visitors and some duck pad thai that Kelvin will bring for lunch. They have mentioned bloodwork and another ultrasound for this weekend, but I’m not sure when those will happen.

  1. You know, when I first saw my son and he had all those tubes and monitors, I honestly didn’t notice. Or care. And when reality really settled, they were quickly forgotten about, too. You learn to parent around them. And you will become an expert at picking up and changing a baby with monitor leads! Makes changing diapers when you get home a piece ‘o cake.

    Thinking of you…

  2. So glad you and the bee are being taken care of! We are praying for all three of you – just hang on a little longer!

  3. Courtney! I just found your blog. I’m sorry you’re going through so much right now with the bee (love that, BTW), but it’s going to be ok! I’ll be praying for ya. Cannot wait to find out for sure if it’s a girl bee or a boy bee! Hang in there!

  4. just heard the news (have been on vacation this week and laying low). I thought we agreed that you weren’t going to be dramatic – and now you’ve outdone all of us!

    All good thoughts to you and Kelvin and the little Bee….
