Tonight I got the best surprise...
After stopping by the other hospital to see Ward, Eric went home to be with Amos, Maggie, and Audrey, leaving me alone in Orem =( I am a big girl, but I have never done a night alone in the hospital before. Around 8:30, I settled in for a quick nap, since I am dead tired, but will need to be up for pumping, antibiotics checks, etc. One successful power nap later, I found myself being woken up by Audrey and Eric! I was so very grateful to see them. Their mere presence made me feel awesome, but they brought comforting news from home too. My family is being very well cared for in my absence. My unbelievably thoughtful friend Melanie watched the kids all day, did Maggie and Audrey's hair special for them, and then fed Eric dinner for me. I couldn't ask for more.
I am certain Audrey's hair has never looked so good. I am also pretty grateful that Audrey and Eric brought me chocolate ;)
As for Ward, he is alone in the hospital tonight too. The last update we got was that he was back on the c pap machine, being monitored. He's due for some more lung x-rays in the morning.
I cannot wait to have my rowdy clan all at home together.
