Merry Christmas! Day 12 on the HRP Floor

Whew- a busy few days! We had a lot of fun getting together with family and exchanging lots of neat gifts. It was weird this year being at the hospital instead of at home or at a family member's house. But it worked out great. On Christmas Eve, Mom, Terry, Mary, and Richard brought some Christmas cheer and goodies out to the hospital. On Christmas Day, Dad, Elizabeth, Memaw, and Bob came to bring us Christmas dinner and exchange gifts. Then later Tracie and the girls as well as Terry and Sarah stopped by for a quick visit. At the end of the day on Friday, Kurt and I were both exhausted but we had a great few days. Dad and Elizabeth surprised us with a very special and very needed gift. They bought us a 2000 Dodge Caravan so we can shuttle around our new family. They are driving it back tomorrow night from Elizabeth's mom's house in Alabama. We can't wait to see it!

Another Christmas surprise I was excited to get was to see Lady on Thursday and today. Both times Kurt and Dad coordinated a plan to bring her up to the fountain at the hospital. The nurses wheeled me down there and I got to spend a few precious moments loving on my puppy. I miss her so much! Just spending a little time with her has done wonders for me. My blood pressure was even better after I saw her! For the most part my pressures have been stable. I've had a few high ones but the doctors have been pleased with how things are going. Strangely, I've also lost several pounds this week. I am currently only 10 lbs. heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight. I was as much as 20 lbs. heavier at the highest weight during this pregnancy but now I am down to 10. Strange huh? The doctors say it is ok and that sometimes it just happens that way. Oh well, as long as the babies are growing strong I will just take it as it comes. Weird though that I am almost 32 weeks pregnant with triplets and only up 10 lbs. total. That's less than the babies weigh right now. The babies are still doing great though. I had an ultrasound this morning and the heart rates, fluid levels, and blood flow through the cords are great. So the babies appear to be happy as clams! Tuesday is our 32 week goal. Please keep the prayers coming.

Here are some pics from Christmas at the hospital! What a memory!
