Preemie Life - Day 34 Irony?
Our resident came in today while both Dr. J and I were there. "Hi," he says to my hubby, "I haven't had a chance to meet you yet." "Oh we've meet before," Dr. J says, "Just under different circumstances." And then he says nothing else, and the resident just looks at him blankly, it was probably only for a minute but talk about awkward. Finally he figured out they've worked together before. Dr. J thought it was funny. I thought it was jerky. I don't know why but I always want to protect all the residents, I feel all motherly toward them. I guess it's because I want people to protect my hubby by being nice to him. Not that I want to protect him, I wanted to kick his foot at that moment. Cheetah just keeps growing. She's getting little rolls on her thighs. I've got to get a picture because it is oh so delicious. I'm now driving out to the hospital twice a day. With gas at 3.39 a gallon and time with my kids at a premium I'm really struck by the irony of picking a hospital a half hour away because it had midwives, not actually be able to use them, but getting stuck with driving out there twice a day. Yes I think the Universe must have a sense of humor.
