My parents left an hour and a half ago. So far, so good. It is nice to be at home, just the three of us, I must admit. However, I am more anxious about Monday, when Andy goes to work. I have rather enjoyed having other people around becomes it's kept me from worrying at all. Luckily, we have her first pediatrician's appointment Monday, which will give us something to do.
The swelling I endured after little one's birth has finally gone away. Praise the Lord! I didn't deal with that the whole pregnancy, but after the birth? Craziness. A nurse told me the body, after a c-section, will kind of rebel and continue to make some amniotic fluid. With nowhere to go, it heads south to the ankles and feet. It was attractive...really. But, I can now seen the veins and tendons in my feet and my ankles are no longer running a close match with my calves. It's the little joys in life I tell you!
So far, we seem to be settling into family life ok. We are still in awe everyday of this little blessing we have been given. We can sit and stare at her for hours and be completely content and mesmerized.
After an appointment with my doctor on the 16th, I am hoping to get cleared to drive again. I'm a prisoner in my own home! See, told you God was forcing me to rest and be still! I am looking forward to having the freedom to go places, even if I do choose to stay home. My recovery is going well, and I haven't taken any pain medications since Wednesday, which is a bonus. What can I say? All is well in our little world.
