Fresh Air

I'm still here and the baby is still inside - yeah! Yesterday I reached the 31 week mark and today is my 33rd day in the hospital.

Earlier this week I was told that I now have wheel chair privileges -- 20 minutes two times a week. For a variety of reasons I had not taken advantage of this yet, but since its pretty nice out I decided that today was the day. So about 40 minutes ago for the first time since February 23rd I left my room. And, for the first time since February 18th I actually went outside. I've never appreciated a little bit of fresh air so much!

Glad you got to enjoy the weather a little bit! It looks like Jennifer and I will be in town part of the week of March 30; I'll be back again the week of April 13, too... we'll figure out how to come and visit you!

I was on hospital bedrest for a month! My first ride in the chair outdoors was incredible. I had forgotten what a breeze felt like!!
Hang in there. Your time in bed will fade once you hald that little baby in your arms.

I'm so glad you got to get a bit of fresh air. THere is nothing like it in the world when you haven't had any. I remember when I was in last fall for the few months I used to wish I could crack my hospital window just to breathe it in. Meredith is so right...although this is such a drag now...it's amazing how quickly this time will become a distant memory when you have that little one in your arms. It almost seems like it was a decade ago...not just 4 months for us. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and keep up the good work...it's hard stuff being in there. But you're doing great!

Great that you can get out -- I would be the same way. I hate being cooped up for long.

Hang in there. Eyes on the prize. :-)
