Three Peas In A Pod

The wild and crazy ride of raising our triplets: Rowan, Eli, and Finn!

Early Release for Good Behavior April 29, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — patricktatertots @ 7:57 pm

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.

    Good Morning, Renita, Ross & Baby Tots,

    Halleluiah! I’ve been reading your notes and comments posted to those notes. I would love to send you books if you need them. I would also love to come read some of those books to you if you’re ever sent back to the hospital again. Billy tells me its only a 5 hour drive from here. Still, I’m full of hope for you and the boys that all will be well and longer! Stay in bed. No stress!
