Thanksgiving and Family

My appointment at the hospital last Tuesday was pretty uneventful.  Mostly it just kept my mom from making a timely departure to Maine as she had planned.  They monitored me for hours, adjusted my meds and finally let me go home… after making me get IV fluids and not giving me any food for hours!

I was so incredibly blessed to have Ben’s family here for Thanksgiving to keep my mind off of bedrest and to help with preparing a special holiday.  His parents, sisters, and older brother’s family all came in to spend a few days with us.  His mom and sister-in-law cooked Thanksgiving dinner and I got up off the couch for a little while to enjoy the meal with them.  I was sad to see them go, but luckily my mom is driving back from Maine and planning to stay with me for the duration of bedrest!

I have decided that if I am going to spend weeks laying around (and I intend for it to be a LOT of weeks), I might as well have a list of things to accomplish… so I plan to catch up on my reading, work on 2nd grade lesson plans, catch up on all my television shows, set up a system for blogging and keeping up with the twins… and of course do all my Christmas and baby shopping online… that should keep me busy for at least a week, right?

Spread the love
