I’ve been looking forward to Saturday night since I was admitted last week Thursday. During the day Doug was busy with the basement and I was busy getting ready for their visit. Rae came and decorated my room with Halloween decorations.
Mom even carved me a pumpkin. It’s an owl …. see it?
Rae helped me out by picking up some snacks for little Jaden so he could trick or treat at my bed. AND she took me on a wheel chair adventure. At first it felt like we were whipping down the halls and I told her to slow down! But I think it’s just that I walk so slow these days, normal pace feels like running! We went down to the gift shop for a bit and found a few activity books for Jaden. Then we grabbed a snack and sat outside for a little bit. It was a tad cold, but I was outside darn it! I just zipped up my fleece. Besides, the people watching was insane! Who knew people wear ass-less chaps to the hospital?
The boys finally arrived around dinner time. We all got to eat together. Me and Jaden in the bed and Doug at the small table. Then Jaden got to “find” his present in the “elevator to China” (the closet). He was really excited. In fact I think he colored every picture in the invisible ink book I got him. We eat lots of candy and snacks and watched Casper. At 10 I got hooked up to the heart monitors and Jaden was really excited to “see” his brothers. In fact, he wanted to help! So he crawled up onto the bed behind me. Nurse Sue was so sweet and asked him to “help” by holding one of the monitors for her. He was pretty excited to help … for 30 seconds.
After all the candy and coloring Jaden went to sleep really well …. he was SO cute!
At about 5am Jaden woke up and wanted to sleep with me. I couldn’t say no. But for heaven’s sake … he cannot sleep straight in a bed. By the time I was woken up at 6 to be put on the monitor Jaden had his legs wrapped on top of my belly and had taken over 3/4 of the bed. I had just enough room to lay for my test, then I gave up and moved to the chair. I wasn’t mad or even irritated … I was so happy to have Jaden with me! Both boys slept right through all the heart monitoring …. and it’s LOUD!! I was really surprised. Look at how cute they are ….
Katie was sweet enough to bring us breakfast in the morning. Yum yum bagel, egg, cheese and sausage sammies! Jaden woke up shortly after we started eating and the first thing out of his mouth was “can I have a sucker?” And you know what I said? “Of course! Happy Halloween!” It was a special sleepover! We bummed around as a family watching Halloween movies, playing the banana game (has a bunch of letter blocks like Scrabble). Doug and Jaden were spelling all the triplet’s names and I hear Doug go “W-e-s-t-i-n, that spells Weston” I was like ” you don’t know how to spell your sons name?” And that started the facebook vote on how we should spell our W boy. I think the majority has voted Weston. I think I win!
Day 4 in the hospital complete! 31 Weeks complete! Tomorrow we are officially 32 weeks! more updates to come …
Love you all!
