Hospital stitching

I have been placed in the hospital for pregnancy complications. I will be here for the rest of my pregnancy, however long that is. Left-brain brought me some stitching supplies (see, it's a good thing to keep random stuff in bags around the house) and I stitched this yesterday. It's "friendsheep" by Shepherds Bush.  It was easy to do.  I am giving it to DD, since she is having a rough time with me being here. We talk about our hearts all the time, and she knows my heart is always with her, so now she has a heart she can look at from me, til I get home at least, hopefully with her brother.

As far as that, today is not a good day to talk about what is going on. I've been here since Tuesday with blood pressure. Yesterday was a good day, but I got very little sleep last night because Wee Man was being monitored and then, having nothing better to do with my time, I realized today is eleven years since the accident that took my gramma, and I got to freaking out that something is wrong with my baby and he will come today, way too soon.  We have 18 hours to get through so it will be a long day. I hate being here. I hate being tested all the time. I know it's for the best, but I hate it. Tomorrow will be better, I bet

I was put on bed rest for one of my boys for the last six weeks (pre-eclampsia) and you know what?
my water broke two days before the due date and I had him in an hour and a half : )
It was the fastest and easiest labor of all of them and I wondered if my body just loved the rest
(even tho it was no fun and my sister had to come take care of my other wee ones).
I will be praying similar for you. Try to find some good books to read,
these days will pass and your little one will be here soon.
Regards, Theresa

I just read on the 123 Message Board that you had your little boy, Rachel... Want you to know he will be in my prayers--such a tiny baby, but I'm sure he is getting the best of care. Congratulations on your newest family member!

So sorry to hear of your health worries. I hope time passes quickly for you and you and your baby stay healthy.
Gorgeous stitching- the little button is so cute!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
