Amber looked forward to this all day!
At 5:50 she was sitting in the chair anxiously waiting for her to arrive.
Right at 6:00 - here they came!
Mike, Jersey and the two volunteers from PAWS.
It was so much fun to watch them together again after 23 days of separation.
LOOK at Amber's smile!
Just a girl and her dog!
Jersey was very polite and well mannered. She kept us ALL entertained.
The volunteers said this was the largest pet they have assisted in a visit.
Amber had saved back one of her snack apples for Jersey's treat.
Apparently giving fruit as treats to dogs is more common than I imagined.
The hour passed quickly and it was time to take Jersey Girl home.
As we walked out, Jersey left a trail of smiles behind her.
She rode to the hospital with Mike but LD and I took her home so A&M could spend the evening together. She settled down in the back seat after we got going and went right to sleep.
Today has been quiet here in the hospital room. The lights are dim and the blinds closed. Amber is totally exhausted after the excitement of yesterday. Even happy times use up what little energy and strength she has. No longer will she be able to sit in the chair and bend forward. She was hoping to get one more visit from Jersey before the babies are born but realizes that's not going to be possible. The contractions have increased today and is causing concern. We are in the last weeks so that's to be expected but still unsettling.
This is day 24. 16 more days and she will be at 28 weeks. She is looking forward to one more growth scan week after next. The 4D scans are amazing. You can SEE the babies - or at least two of them - pretty clearly. Trystan and Logan are not in position to be photographed as much as Kailey and Harrison. They can also tell Amber the exact weights of each baby. She knows they are GROWING right now! Every day she is getting ever bigger. My girl is so heavy with babies she looks like she's about to pop.
Her belly looks like it hurts and it DOES!! Talk about growing pains!! She has them!
Since it is quiet and she seems to be napping I think I am going to take a little walk.
I come in to the hospital but haven't really explored much. The zoo is across the street and I am certain there must be some nice areas to take a walk.
I'm off to find out!
