My Big Morning

I managed to sleep pretty well last night aside from all the IV beeping interruptions.  I was woken up by one of the residents at 6:30am, and that was followed by a visit from the whole doctor team.  They seem positive, and hope that I can just keep on doing this well for the next 12 weeks or so.

After my double portion breakfast was served, Josh took me for a wheelchair ride around the hospital.  It was weird leaving my room for the first time in 3 days.  We went down to the McDonald's that's on site and got coffee.  It was very exciting.  BTW - Isn't kind of weird that a hospital has a McDonald's on the premises?  I don't mind; it gives me somewhere to go occasionally other than the drab cafeteria.

After our walk, I was still feeling spunky, so I even took a shower!  Exciting, I know!  Now I feel refreshed, in clean clothes, and am ready to see my first scheduled visitors of the day!  Even though I am feeling really well this morning, I still know that I have to take it easy.  I don't want to over do it.


  1. Sounds like an exciting morning, I am glad your spirits are up. I was cracking up when I read Josh's most recent blog. Even though I can't comment on his since I am not a "blogger" I wanted him to know he made me and my co-workers laugh. I can't wait to see you guys tomorrow!

  2. Actually, it wasn't his most recent blog, it was the one before. I love the sound

  3. it's a good sign if you can go away, you look better.
    but stay up in bed rest in maximum now, I hope that you have many DVD and tv channels lol

  4. Just found your blog through on of the other quad mamas that i follow. I will add you and your precious babies to my prayers.
    Many blessings.

  5. Lauren, we continue to pray for you and the babies every day. Hang in there. Amanda
