Morning Update (6-29)
Well....it has been a week, and we're still here. Our doctor, Dr. Cousins, is here today and we are very excited about when he comes in to do his rounds today. Whenever that is.
We are slightly concerned with Michelle's diet. The nurse came in early this morning and had Michelle weigh herself. According to the numbers Michelle has lost 7 lbs. in a week. This might have to do with the scale itself, the fact that she weighed in the morning (which if you've ever dieted you know that the morning is the most friendly), or it could be accurate. Given the diabetes diet they have her on, gaining weight will be hard other than the natural weigh gain, so we're going to ask about that and see what's going on.
Michelle has been assigned a "movement therapist" for help with bed rest (which is not a good sign that we will be able to go home). She is currently teaching Michelle some exercises to do so she can keep aches and pains away that are associated with bed rest.
We did get some good news that there is a message therapist that comes in every so often to do prenatal messages. Michelle's eyes got huge when she learned that. Here we come week 2!
