4 Weeks

I can't believe it has already been 4 weeks. 4 weeks tonight at 22:53 since my precious baby boy was born.
I think, for the most part, that my husband and I are doing really well. We have tried to keep busy gardening and being outside doing things together. I've gone with him on a few of his business trips, which happened to be back in VA so that I could see my family and friends there. That has helped me alot!
My blood pressure and my liver enzymes are trending down and I'm now down to one blood pressure pill a day. We still don't know what happened and maybe we'll find out something in a few weeks. I do know though, that my blood pressure had nothing to do with any of this, it only started going up while I was in the hospital.
We have had such an amazing amount of support. I can't even remember how many cards, emails, facebook messages, phone calls, meals, flowers, and other gifts that we have received.
One absolutely amazing gift is this beautiful quilt that was sent to me this week by my friends from the Potholder Pass. I've never met these ladies. 17 ladies that don't know me or anyone in my family, all got together and made these beautiful pinwheel blocks to put into a quilt in memory of Little E. There are blocks from Canada, Norway, Australia, the UK, and the US. I can't even begin to describe how special this is to me. These beautiful ladies did such and amazing job. Every stitch is just perfect! The fabric choices are just perfect! It is so soft and perfect!

The quilt is beautiful and a touching memorial. I'm so thankful every day for the internet and friends made through blog connections. It is a constant reminder of how beautiful our world is. We forget that sometimes. Blessings Robin.
