|They had trouble finding a good vein for the IV. The nurses had to stick me 4 times.|

I'm taking it easy, though I'm still not healing as quickly as I should. I'm probably walking around too much...washing and drying a few too many clothes, but I do find myself sitting A LOT. It's easy to sit when you feel broken. Also, sitting is easy when you have a sweet baby to hold.
While it's nice to have some energy back, I'm still not 100%. Of course that is to be expected. I remember after I had Charley, my cousin who'd already had two children of her own, reassured me that things would get better. She told me that I would heal. It was such a simple thing, but hearing it helped me tremendously.
We were sad to see Mom head back to Alabama,
but thankful that Chuck was able to take two weeks paternity leave.
He's been hanging out with Charley a lot, making her feel special.
He takes Charley to school and picks her up.
He took care of Bo while I was seeing the doctor.
He's even kept both Charley AND Bo, while I went to another doctor's appointment!
He cooks and brings me bottles when I need them.
Plus, he's handsome.
AND he does crafts with Charley.
On the downside, I'm out of paint and peanut butter and we'll be finding bird seed in the floor for decades to come. That's the price I pay for a good husband I guess.
It seems like a reasonable price.
