I had my second followup appointment this morning. Everything continues to look good according to the doctors. Amniotic fluid levels are good and the incision site looks great. Grayden's ventricles are at the same level at this point, which I am told is good, he continues to have a great heart rate and is moving around like crazy. I also got the go ahead to sit up to eat and go outside in the wheelchair and to possibly attempt an outing this weekend if I feel up to it!! I'm so excited! Best of all I was given the okay to let Zander sit on my lap and even cuddle because everything looks good with the incision.
My good friend Jen arrived on Saturday and in typical Jen fashion, brought lots of things to keep us entertained. It is so great to have her here. She also came bearing a Nook, that many of my family and friends went in on to get for me. What can I say I have the most incredible people in my life!! Karen went home Saturday and my dad decided to stay to help us find a more suitable place to stay. He is actually out right now as I type this looking at a few places. A big thank you goes out to my dad and Karen for taking such good care of me and Zander while they were here. Again, words will never be able to truly express my gratitude!!
Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting up with a family from Lousiana who are here for their daughter's one year follow up. They are also participants of the MOMS study and were randomized for the postnatal group. Selina and I met through an online group that we are members of. We had such a great time chatting and the kids had so much fun playing. We actually ran into them again today at the hospital and were able to have lunch together as well! It is so nice to be able to chat with people who have been in the same situation. Their daughter Madison is such a cutie pie.
(I can't figure out how to move the pictures to the bottom of the page right now, so they are posted at the top). Zander attempted to give Maddie many kisses, I only got the one picture, but there will be more to come from Selina's camera!!
Thanks again for stopping by Selina, Chris, and Maddie. We really enjoyed our visit and loved the cookies and flowers!! Zander loves his bus and blocks too!!
