I had a visit from the nurse that was with me when this all started, what a pleasant surprise. Though all the nurses have been very good, this one just warms my heart when I see her. For some reason, she knows what I want or need to know, and is a tremendous help. Plus, it is just nice to have something that is a constant in this whole adventure of surprises.
My aunt came to visit today and painted my toenails, they are candy cane striped. Having them feels a bit festive, which is nice. A friend managed to bring some decorations too... So it doesn't seem so stark in here.
I asked to have one of the visits from the hospital dogs, and want to see if I can meet with any of the other moms in the ante-partum unit, you know, to find out what is going on with them and all, though many have been up here for months.
The other nice thing is that apparently I am a "favored" patient... My nurse from last night came in to tell me that I get the nurse I had two nights ago, but that they argued over who got me. It is nice to be loved.
One thing that is a distinct possibility is having a Christmas Eve baby... Apparently induced labor with a cervix like mine can take a while... and it is also dependent on when they start the induction process... and it seems like I have to get in line... How interestingly bizarre.
