Although, I must admit I never thought I would use the terms good behavior and my cervical length in the same sentence; just goes to show you not everything you need to know about writing can be taught in AP English (sorry Mrs. Clausen). As the title suggests, I am currently out of the hospital (YEAH!) for what is most likely a temporary reprieve. Dr. Groome was satisfied that I was not contracting and that me and the babies were stable so he allowed me to go home. Of course, Ross and I both had to promise that I would be able to follow his orders for bed rest at home; and although it is tempting to do things around the house, for the most part I am just being a lady of leisure. I’ll go back to the doctor on Thursday for another check-up and to see where things stand. So for now, we are just in a holding pattern and hoping that my cervical length will not go any shorter and that I will be able to remain at home for at least a few more weeks.
I also need to pass along some thank yous: to my family in Temple, TX (Wendy, Steve, Jake, Carla, and Little McKenzie) thank you so much for the beautiful flowers in my hospital room. They came right at the time that I was having a breakdown from bad food and to much awful daytime television. To my bestest friend ever, Christina, for all the great maternity clothes; I think both me and my co-workers were tired of my limited selection. And to Ann Bradford, a co-worker from LSU, who had three beautiful baby blankets made for the boys so we could always follow her rule of no babies on the floor without a blanket. I’m sure they will be treasured by both me and the tots when they get here.
Hope everyone is having a great week; as always, we appreciate everyone’s love and support through this crazy and sometimes overwhelming time.
