It has been 3 days since we had little Henry. In some ways it feels like an eternity. In other ways, it doesn't seem at all real. I look at my pile of maternity clothes in the chair, with the boxes right next to them, and it seems unreal that I'm going to pack those up tomorrow.
And my breast milk came in today. The girls started filling up yesterday, but today they started hurting. So I made a decision on something that I've been mulling over for a few days. Even though it seems weird, seems odd... I'm going to pump my breast milk and donate it to a milk bank. There's one in Columbus, and I've contacted them about donating. When I had the Hethan, it was not unusual for me to pump 5-10 oz out of one breast while nursing at the other. I was made for nursing, I think.
So life goes on. I keep breathing. Aaron keeps breathing. The world keeps turning, and we're still on it.
We saw Walk the Line tonight. Good movie. Good vocals. I highly reccomend it. :)
I'm taking some time off of work. I wasn't sure about the doctor's orders on Friday when he gave them. He wanted me to take off a month. I laughed at him. So he wrote out orders for me to take at least 2 weeks, and to reevaluate after that time. On Saturday, I still thought he was nuts. But today, today, I think he might have a point. I think I'm going to need some time to bounce back from this. Each day is different. But we'll keep breathing.
Wow-- Family Ties is on Hallmark. Wow. I remember when I thought Michael J. Fox was the hottest guy around. Oh my. Am I showing my age? :)
