My Grandson Will Be Here In a Couple of Days!!
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Its been a really busy 5 weeks! My daughter (Caela) is going into hospital on Thursday night to get induced. For her safety and that of bubs. She has a high protein count ... I cant remember the proper name for it. I dont know why Ive heard the term almost every day for weeks!! But for this particular moment in time - its eluded me!
She's been having blood and urine tests every 3 days and midwife appointments every 4-5 days the last couple of weeks. Just to watch her blood pressure and her protein/uric acid counts. She was hoping to have her birth closer to home at the local maternity hospital in Papakura - but she has to go to Middlemore Hospital now for safety reasons. Everything is there if need be. I know she'll be alright - but shes so young! She's only 17. I'll be glad when he's here.
Last week DH flew out to Sydney, Australia to do a course on flood restoration for his job. I've been trying to get him to move over there for AT LEAST 15 years but he just wouldnt budge. Now that hes actually been there himself, he came home stating he'd like to move there one day he liked it so much. Well, its a bit late for that now with the grandbabies coming. Im not going to go anywhere!
He was gone for 6 days, but boy it felt like he'd been gone for weeks. In 20 odd years, we've NEVER been apart that long before in our whole relationship. I didnt think that I'd miss him that much - in fact, I thought I'd be glad to see the back end of him for a wee while. You know, have a break. Ooooh, talk about being lost. I was. It was terrible. Im so glad he's home ... I told him hes not allowed to leave me again for that long ever! What a sookie!!
What else has been happening - so much - but I cant think at the moment. Its bedtime and I've got a fried brain. I have to take Caela to the specialist tomorrow, and accompany my other daughter to her ultrasound scan earlier in the day as well as do my prep for our meeting tomorrow night, and try to do some baking to take to the hospital while shes waiting for bubs to come.
I'll try to update after bubs is born and let you know how it went.
