If you had asked me a week ago would I imagine that Samuel had cancer I would have looked at you wondering what planet you came from... and here we are... with this crazy scary diagnosis/prognosis.
I had an OB appointment today and all looks well with baby and my fluids look normal! Hurray.
It's hard to try to rest, take it easy and care for myself in the midst of all that's going on. I know it serves everyone and especially the baby but it's not natural to not stay near Samuel while he's in the hospital.
I can see that Mike is exhausted and it's causing a strain on him.
The prospect of being her for a lot longer (6 weeks) seems so overhwelming... but if I look at the year it's terrifying. So one day at a time. Sometimes it's just one deep breath at a time.
Someone brought Samuel a really cool tiger hat. He put it on and roared so I roared back... so he told me, "No Mama. I'm the tiger. You're the Mama!" It gave me a good laugh.
His favorite treat has been oreos lately. I was wondering why he seemed so dirty... it was the oreo crumbs :)
Well, dinner arrived.. so off to nourish the babe within...
