I've been here for three months today. I left home on March 17 thinking I was going on three night work trip. For some reason today that three night trip keeps popping in my head and kind of makes me feel like I'm on Gilligan's Island. I know that's ridiculous but they thought they were just going on a 3 hour tour when they got stranded so you can see where I got it.
Sorry, that was random.
Gaines is doing great today and I almost want to spank his little fanny. Worrying me like he did yesterday only to get down to 26% last night! Yep, he was at 30% when I visited this morning but last night he was between 26 and 31. Hopefully he'll keep doing well today. Just goes to show that these doctors know what they are talking about. He is still 5 lbs 1 oz.
I had my post partum check-up today and I kind of felt like they did a little mental exam on me. They didn't come right out and say, "We think you might be crazy," but I could tell they wanted to make sure I was sane. Not sane...I'm kidding about that but I did feel like they wanted to make sure I was handling everything ok.
Having a "normal" newborn is really hard and enough to drive you crazy so I think they just wanted to make sure I wasn't depressed or anything. I do appreciate them checking on me but really, I'm ok. Obviously I have my down days (read yesterday's post for proof) but overall I think I'm doing better this time around than I did with Reed. Pretty sure being able to sleep helps.
On my way out of the doctor's office I ran into my old favorite OB doctor from the hospital. It was so good to see her. I talked to her for a bit and she hugged me when I left. We have met so many people since we've been here and so many of them have been wonderful but some just really stick out in your mind. I can't put a finger on why they do, they just do.
I'll run for now. It's raining just hard enough here to keep you inside. I hear that the high is 99 back home today. Can't say that I miss that part of home too much. That and the mosquitoes. I take that back. I'd kiss a mosquito right now if it meant I was home. Maybe we'll all be there soon.
Love to all,
