Going to the zoo...


We live in such a time-warp. In a way...we are at the twilight of the longest day of our lives and at the same time... at the dawn after our longest night... Soon, we'll be able to squeeze free from the space between play and pause and we'll be able to start turning with the world again...

So far, this week has been much better for Avery. It may have been very wishful thinking to try to get her home last week... with her immunizations and RSV shot all in one week. She just took a break and recovered...and has gradually gotten back on her pony this week...

I will tell a better story later... but for now, we've cleaned our apartment...again... and we'll be making one more trip up to the hospital today...

They say to just tell your baby that you're just going to the zoo, lest they catch on to the plan and something else delays the trip home... 

It feels like Christmas morning.... finally!

Hi. You don't know me. I know Ron & Lori Nelson and their family and stumbled upon their blog and saw your comment... so I clicked on you guys to see if I knew you... I don't, but I see that you have a preemie? On September 9th, we had our first daughter, 10 weeks early. So, if its okay with you, I want to read some of your posts to see how your story went... I'm glad to see yours is doing so well!

Okay. Me again. So right after that last comment, I wanted to see what happened that made you have your daughter early... I HAD HELLP, too! Crazy. We have a blog, if you'd like to read our story... guymonsays.blogspot.com
Like I said, glad your little girl is okay, but I'm glad you're okay too!
