Hospital, Brothers and Other Ramblings

Well.  I sure didn't think we'd be checking into the hospistal for the whole week when we got here on Monday but that seems to be the plan.  I was laughing with Beau today about some comments we made over the weekend about how thankful we were that Gaines was sick over the weekend so we didn't have to take time off of work.  Ha!  I swear God has a sense of humor.

We had a rough night Monday night as Gaines ended up needed four liters of oxygen to keep his sats up but he seems to be improving now and the doctor today told me that he wasn't worried about him at all, but that  his little lungs just need some extra time to get over this.  So...we've been here.  And its been fine.  Good nurses, lots of time to snuggle with my boy and catch up on back episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Today we followed doctor's orders to walk the halls and ended up at the nursery window looking at the new babies.  Gaines asked if we could take one home.  They aren't puppies.  Not that we are in the market for a puppy either.  We have all the living things that I can keep up with right now.

Speaking of puppies though, its funny to me that both boys seem to really think that Jack is their brother.  If I ever mention our family of four or something along those lines they'll correct me and say five.  Or, "Uh, mom, aren't you forgetting someone?  Jack?" looking at me like I'm a total idiot for forgetting my oldest son.  I'm guessing at some point they'll figure that out.  Hope so anyway.

The two human brothers are missing each other this week.  They really do love each other.  Reed claims to have other best friends but Gaines will love on Reed sometimes and say "Best fwiends".  He still doesn't say "r"s and "l"s well but I just can't bring myself to really correct him.  I love to hear him say, "I win and you wose!  You the woser".  Probably won't be so cute when he's twelve but for now I think its ok.  And yes, we are working on being graceful winners....among many, many other things.  

The boys have been into temporary tatoos lately.  Reed likes to put them semi-normal places but last week Gaines asked for a Perry (of Fineus & Ferb fame) on his hiney.  So I had him pull his pants down and I stuck on on there one on it.  It was Friday and I didn't see why not.  We'll just say that Beau was not say the least.  It stayed there all weekend and I got a serious talking to on Sunday night when he realized it was still there.  If anyone that may have helped Gaines in the restroom at church on Sunday is reading this, I apologize for the platypus on his hiney.

I'm working on figuring out the picture thing on my ipad.  I hope y'all enjoyed those three pictures on the last post because they took me a WHILE to make work.  Blogger seems kind of finicky about them plus I'm trying to figure out how sync ipad, iphone and computer pictures all together.  Technology is hard.

Ok, I think I may be tired enough to sleep on my luxury cot.  And by luxury I mean it does not also double as a chair.

Love to all,
