Leave, wonderful leave

Petrina was able to take a couple of hours leave yesterday afternoon, and it was wonderful! SP was absolutely delighted to have her home reading stories again, and it was lovely for us to just sit together on the couch being in each others' presence.

The higher medication dose is knocking her energy out though, so it's for the best that she's still in and not trying to do things around the house. It'll be interesting to see how things go if they do change to outpatient treatment before baby is born.

For now, please pray that this will be a healing weekend. There's been lots more sinus, but the high fluid levels (a.k.a. hydrops for those with a medical inclination) are still a problem. Pray that there will be long periods of sinus rhythm, giving baby's body the time it needs to clear the fluid and start getting stronger again.

And wouldn't you know it - after my post yesterday about missing parcels, guess what arrived at 1/4 to 5 in the afternoon? That's right! SP may be too young to build it on his own, but he loves helping daddy with it.

  1. I can just imagine the fun SP and Daddy have with Lego! Much the same fun that my two boys have with Daddy's birthday Lego. :)

    So glad to hear that you were able to enjoy some time together as a family. Much love.
