Night One Complete

By BrandonA Day in the Life2 Comments

After getting the girls back to our neighbors, I ran errands and got a few things together and came back to the hospital. I rented a DVD for us to watch but Kim and I were drifting the entire time through it. Plus, there are the constant interruptions from the staff seeing how things are going. Probably will miss the help in a day.

Kayla is a night owl so it wasn’t easy to get sleep — for Kim. I was in a state of zombie walking asking if anyone needed anything. No? OK. Crash. Huh? OK. Crash. Apparently in the wee hours there was a big diaper change and other fun with nurses and I was sound asleep. I used to be a light sleeper but not anymore. After a 100 mile week of running then an all night baby delivery, my body was done.

Kim got some sleep early in the AM as Kayla finally crashed out for an extended period. We went to our discharge class to learn about all the baby stuff they have changed in the last 4 years since we did this last time. Apparently, our current children should be deemed defective. Probably keep them anyway.

Doing final doctor checks now and then we should be heading home in an hour or so. Our girls are trading houses and going to some other friend’s tonight so we can have a little more quiet time. My parents fly in tomorrow so we will have 4 extra hands for about a week.

Full coverage of the trip home later today.

    Now, I understand what went wrong with you kids!

    Carole & I have been blaming ourselves all these years for how you and Natalee turned out.

    Today, I found out that we were never given a “discharge class” at the hospital.

    Next time you are here in Fort Wayne, lets go over to Luthern Hospital(where you were born)and see if we can take a “catch-up” class.

    About the 4 extra hands! I’m not the best when it comes to things that can only SQUIRM and CRY a lot. DIAPERS are also not one of my specialties.

    I think that I will mostly be attending as an OBSERVER.
