I’ve been waiting all day to be discharged from the hospital. We were hoping to leave first thing in the morning to head to the board meeting. Last night Jose stayed with me – only he spent most of the night in the ER passing kidney stones while I had one of my worst nights and had to be sedated as well. Jose and I were texting each other inside the hospital around 2am and you could tell when our drugs kicked in because our texts quit making sense! That was the only funny part now looking back.
I felt so much better today though and was waiting for them to let me go. The doctor came in about an hour ago. I’m dressed with my bags packed and shoes on. The doctor looked at me and just shook his head and said – There’s just no way I’m ready to discharge you yet. I’m not confident you won’t end up back in here within a day or so. You need to put that gown back on! 😦
I cried as soon as the doctor told me I wasn’t going anywhere – not just because I can’t go to the meeting – but because I miss the fellowship so much. I know – cue the violins! I’m throwing a pity party and I’m the guest of honor! Jose quickly reminded me when Heather went into Labor and Janeil had to leave the Catalyst Conference early. The slogans are right – – A baby really does change EVERYTHING – especially two of them!
Jose is feeling MUCH better after one of his worst nights. I don’t know how to even describe him. I don’t know what it’s like to pass a stone -but I know it’s bad. YET after he’s discharged from the ER – he’s up here trying to take care of me. AMAZING is all I can say. He is still going to the meeting tomorrow.
On a positive note – (for a change) – Mikela’s class visited the planetarium today. She’s been telling everyone that she went to space today and wants to move there. Rosie has been upset because she hasn’t been to space yet and said that we’re supposed to be family and travel to space together! Got to love those girls!
We might have to start charging you admission to be apart of this crazy show!
