My aunt and cousin came to see me today...HOORAY! My cousin brought me some color by pencil pages and I was enjoying them earlier. I would take a pic of my artwork, but my bad cat knocked my pretty pink camera off and broke it. Which is really irritating since it was my only digital camera. Anyway, I am again hanging out on the couch. I have had some contractions today, but nothing to bad. I did have some MAJOR lower pain when I stood up and I think it scared Mike a bit. Also, I am in a regular shirt today vs maternity because Jude has moved so low. Mike says he is going down the drain..ha! Anyway, my cousin and aunt said my color was much better today. I wasn't aware my color was off? Anyway, that is reassuring to hear though because to me that says this medication is working and increasing my platelets. I will find out Tuesday, but my bruises are getting better too. Well my lil slave Mikey is about to go grocery shopping he is such a good boy. I miss my work and I miss being with Sarah everyday. I know I probably won't even think about work when Jude is here.
** update** Poor Mike got home from the grocery store, and I think he had a lil melt down :(. He is having to do everything I normally do and I know it's so overwhelming. He hd to put stuff up, clean the cat litter, a glass broke, etc etc. It's hard for me to stay seated watching him upset too. I did too much the first time I came home from the hospital. I even took Em shopping for her school clothes at Justice and I shouldn't have. I felt so bad she was stuck in the house and had saved this money for her, but my butt should have been planted. It will all be over soon though. Anyway, I saw this poem today on one of my boards and I loved it. I thought I would share.
"A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earthtomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small andhelpless?"God said,"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."The child further inquired,"But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but singand smile to be happy."God said,"Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."Again the child asked,"And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to meif I don't know the language?"God said,"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words youwill ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel willteach you how to speak.""And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"God said,"Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.""Who will protect me?"God said,"Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.""But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."God said,"Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you theway to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices fromEarth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."God said,"You will simply call her, "Mom."
