Today has really been a great day. Last night finished up with some ice cream from Claire and Grace around 7:30 pm. It was so great to see them! Unfortunately, Pete called me shortly after they left and said that Claire had puked everywhere and had a temperature. Just what that poor guy needs, more on his plate. Of course, he took it like a champ! She had a pretty slow moving day today but she seems to be feeling better now.
I slept pretty well last night but I have given up on the idea of some solid hours of sleep at night. I plan on getting a couple hours here and a couple of hours there for the rest of my stay but that is not a big deal because I can just take naps during the day.
My day started out meeting my really nice nurse. We chatted for a little bit. Then my doctor came in and (AGAIN) declined a wheelchair ride but he told me to keep asking. He did write for daily massages which sounds awesome! Apparently there is a massage therapist that rounds daily so that will quickly become a highlight to my day!
My friend from work, Jackie, came over to visit and we chatted for about 30 minutes which was really nice. A great friend from Ohio then called on the phone so I talked to her for about 45 minutes. Within 5 minutes of hanging up with her, my aunt and uncle showed up! Then, my friend Brooke from NICU came over and took her lunch break here. After Brooke came my brother, Keith for his lunch break. My other friend, Alex, from work came over and said hi for a few minutes. My afternoon consisted of a shower, some routine monitoring, and a little nap. Then I was greeted with delicious Fazoli's from Pete. He was able to stay for a few hours (thanks to my mom) and during his visit, my friend Jackie came for a bit. The evening ended with a visit from my friend, Emily from NICU and my friend Kari who is a nurse on high-risk.
Needless to say, this has been a very wonderful day! It is easy to keep a positive attitude with all of this wonderful support and visitors!
