This kind of puts our last two weeks into perspective. Normally within the first 24 hours you go over your new baby from head to toe. When Suzie and JR have been able to hold Lindsay, it was such a process with the nurses getting everything just right so as not to loosen any of the tubes, no one noticed that Lindsay has a beautiful raspberry birthmark on her neck. I had forgotten that Suzie had one on the back of her neck when she was born, also.
I took the kids back to Ann Arbor with me last night after I attended Pam's mom's funeral. I don't know who was most excited to see who? The kids were thrilled when we had a pajama party at my hotel and mom and dad had picked up a movie for the kids to watch.
Today we had lunch in the hospital waiting room while we took turns going in to see Lindsay. Then, we explored the playground area at the top of the hospital. After enjoying a popcicle, we took the kids to the children's hands on museum. I told the kids that I had a shortcut to get home because Cole always asks if it's a long drive. I slipped in a portable DVD player so it kept him occupied and broke it up treating him to his first milkshake. He thought it was cool to drink ice cream. Cruz just slept most of the way home.
So, I came home tonight to get some things done, hopefully Suzie will be able to post updates for the next few days. I will return to Ann Arbor on Sunday when JR returns home to go back to work.
Please continue to uplift Suzie and JR's spirits with postings because I really mean it when I say that it's their highlight of the day to come back to the RM House and get on the computer to read your messages to them.
Thank you all and heart hugs too,
