One of my favorite things about Vera is that she is very complimentary of others, and always remembers to thank us for things. For example, she compliments us on dinners she thinks are delicious, or says “Thank you for cooking this dinner, Mom.” She also makes a special point to always say good morning. Even if she forgets during our first encounter and remembers later, she will say, “Good morning Mom, I forgot to tell you earlier.”

She’s also been super-sweet lately about telling us she loves us and baby Wesley. We are lucky parents.

Laundry confusion

  • Nanna: you know what we're going to do today, Vera? We are going to go to the store to get some eggs and a bag for Wesley and your socks.
  • Vera: hahahahaha. Wesley's whole body and my socks? That's silly!
  • Nanna: what? Oh no! I mean Wesley's socks and your socks.

Ouch

I wasn’t prepared for the tear-fest that ensued just now as we pulled up to school to drop Vera off. After a week of excitement and a weekend at home with both parents, her Nanna, and baby Wesley, the separation was too much to bear. Poor baby. At least it’s a short day.

Scary!

Long story short: I just finished getting a blood transfusion.

I apparently lost a good deal of blood yesterday, but things seemed to be under control. However, all day today, people kept telling me that I looked pale, especially while sleeping. I felt ok. i thought I was just tired from nursing last night. Around 8:00ish, I started to get a little dizzy, but again, I attributed that to lack of sleep. Finally, my dad came by the hospital and asked the nurse if they’d done a blood count on me. They hadn’t, because apparently that’s not routinely done unless something is suspicious. The nurse called the dr on call who ordered the test. My H&H were 5 and 14 respectively, which are apparently really low levels. The dr on call ordered 3 units of blood for me. Crazy!! Anyway, I have never has to get a blood transfusion before, and really up until my dad’s concerned face all evening, I didn’t really think anything was seriously wrong. I was a little scared, but I just finished my 3rd unit, and although it’s 3 in the morning and I haven’t gotten more than 45 straight minutes of sleep in 2 days, I feel a lot better!

Trying to deal with cluster-feeding while one arm is hooked up to a BP machine and the other to an iv is no fun, but I am thankful that all went well, and I’m certainly thankful to have a Dr for a dad.

Wesley just ate and I am exhausted. Waiting for 3:30 to take meds and hopefully I can pass out and sleep until 6:00. God knows I need it!

I think Wes was pretty shaken up by the whole thing, but he is sleeping peacefully now too just like is son.

Good night/morning tumblr!

You take amazing photos while loopy.

Thanks! I can’t take the credit though. Those pics are all Wes. I’m not sure I could have clicked a shutter yesterday.
