Yep that's my crazy way of picturing the journey: On a pre-term labor treadmill. We're learning to take it a day at a time and a week at a time. I am overwhelmed when the nurses say, "Only three more weeks!" It is very exciting. We're halfway to the ultimate goal on Saturday, but wow, three more weeks in the bed, hooked up to machines? Jeez. I have to stop and regroup, picture the treadmill at SSI Health & Fitness in my head: Five more minutes, one more lap. That has been my prayer tonight; that Jarrett and me and all of those in the trenches with us will wake up to start anew tomorrow, like we've only been here a few days and this adventure is new.
I've got pictures to take so you guys can see some of the sweet treats we've received. There's some precious baby clothes, flowers, snacks, even a handmade hospital gown. I was hoping to get pictures today, but somehow things were busier than we thought. I had three episodes of regular contractions that Breaker didn't like too much. We had visitors too! The visitors hit the spot today :)
As did this precious post from our brother-in-law, David Herndon. I'll treasure his words forever. If you can, check it out. Here is the address: http://davidherndon.wordpress.
Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers. We feel 'em!! Much love--C
