Bed Rest Birthday
July 2, 2006
20 weeks 2 days
I thought this would be the worst birthday ever but I was wrong! Despite the fact that I have aged 50 years in the last three weeks, (I went from having an active full life to playing scrabble, drinking boost, and complaining about lower back pain) it was a very enjoyable day. For one day we forgot about all of the sadness & stress we have endured and just laughed and enjoyed each other’s company. I got very appropriate gifts…pillows, sheets, books, word puzzles, etc. But the best gift was a calendar from Kevin. This wasn’t just any calendar…it was a very special calendar. Each day was covered with color coordinated sticky notes. Under each sticky note was some sort of typed out personal message. The messages are different everyday. Some of them are sweet, encouraging, and even funny. So every morning I wake up I get to peel off another sticky note and read a sweet message from my hubby. Thanks again Kev!!! I just love it!
PS) I have felt a lot more movement from Ben and Jake the last few days.
What a wonderful feeling!!!!
