The very fact I am taking a few minutes to make my official writing debut on the blog shows a lot of progress.
Unfortunately, this will not be filled with humor or adorable pictures. I leave that to David—for now.
I just want to say thank you. Everyone’s comments and e-mails have blessed me in my free moments tremendously. It has been so nice to feel a little bit connected to the outside world when I have spent so many hours on the 7th floor of Abbott for the past week.
The week has been filled with so much joy. Carson and Coleman are amazing. I could not get enough of them today laying in their bassinet on the way to their car seat test.
It has also been filled with a lot of stress and tears. Thankfully, David and family and friends have really helped throughout the week. David has kept me laughing all week and I even love reading his posts—even though I am there for it all.
David has also changed more diapers than I have . . . A LOT MORE! Since my recovery was tough, he became the main diaper man at all the feedings—and this has been the source of several of the laughs!
It has also been great to have my mom here. She has helped keep all the things in life organized and just allowed me to be here with my boys without feeling like I had other things to tend to. A true gift.
Our family continues to progress everyday. The boys are meeting milestones on their way to discharge from the hospital. David and I are learning a lot about caring for preemies.
And my recovery is moving forward. I should be able to see my ankle bones one of these days. My swelling finally seems to be going down.
