It's now been just over a week since my surgery. We again visited the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor on Wednesday. He said things are looking good, but to keep bed-resting. I'm scheduled to see the doctor for rechecks every week now.
I've been filling my time with a little reading (Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, and a few others), movie watching (Gilmore Girls and The Blindside), and some hand sewing to finish up a few quilts. Tom has been super helpful, keeping house stuff going and taking care of me. It's also been great to have friends bring meals and visit during the day.
So far, the kitties are the biggest fans of bed rest. I've had several multi-hour nap cuddles from Orangey, and a few snuggles from Missy. Tom's pretty sure that when Haly is born, she is going to be disappointed that it's not me who purrs.
It's also been nice to have some beautiful flowers to look at! My friend Kate brought be a companula. Alex & Kelly brought me this awesome orchid when I was in the hospital!
