Well,here I am...

Cole comes home from the hospital...Happy Natal Anniversary Cole
feeling a bit more human today!! For the first time in 2 1/2 weeks I slept more than 4 hrs!!! Coughing seems better and I am breathing better. It's about time!! still tired,but that's to be expected. During all this time I've been sick my grandson had his 7th birthday,March 10th, and my son celebrated his 29th birthday,March 20th!(the above photo is from the day we brought him home from the hospital ). As I laid around coughing and feeling miserable I remember his birth 29 years ago. Seems like yesterday...worked an 8 hr 11pm-7am shift,went home and cleaned the carpets in my 2 story house,took a 2 hr nap then went to my baby shower(3 1/2 weeks till my due date)...got home at 11pm..went to bed..1 am woke my husband and said..shit,baby's on his way! The hospital was only 5 min away..it was where I worked as an RN in the neonatal intensive care unit. Pity I hadn't thought it through...since the labor couldn't be stopped,and he was butt first..C-section time!! Pre-term delivery...NICU team present! There I was in the OR..naked as the day I was born,the nurses I worked with stayed over to be there..ok,but the respiratory therapists were guys I worked with and of course,so was the Neonatologist!!! Enough said..one can have a total body blush!! Yes, I remember this completely!!! Since he was pre-term he also had jaundice and needed bililights..another good thing about working there..I didn't want to go home and leave him to be treated in the NICU..so the neonatologist was able to get bililights for me to use at home!!! ok..so we had to take him to the hospital 4 times a day for blood tests to check to be sure his bilirubin levels were going down,but that was fine by us!What a sight..this tiny baby,sleeping naked in a bassinet with his eyes covered getting phototherapy at home!! Yep, I remember this all like it was yesterday!! He's now almost 6 feet tall and the apple of my eye!  So,now that I'm feeling better I will be making my way to all your blogs over the next few days! I have missed you all and I thank you for all the kind words while I've been sick!  xo, Ann
