Baby Luke - Hospital Day 2
Day 2 in the hospital was calm and quiet. We had a few visitors and took some well needed naps. Luke is a good sleeper and is eating well, but the nurses and techs kept barging into our room at all hours of the night. We're hoping tonight will be much calmer since Emily doesn't have an IV anymore and things are settling down.
The boys came by yesterday to meet their new brother. It was a pretty exciting time. They both enjoyed holding Luke, and were very interested in Emily's tubes, bed, and surgery wounds. It was a lot to take in for a 3 and 5 year old. They both were very interested in the chair/bed convertible that I sleep on at night.
The exciting news for us right now is that we just got moved out of the "overflow" room that we were in and into the 3rd floor newly renovated nursing pod. So we left behind a typical hospital room that was small and basic (for which we were completely grateful for and had no complaints), and we moved into a room that is nicer than many hotel rooms that we have stayed in. All the furniture is new, the bed is much lower to the ground for Emily, the bathroom is almost as big as our old room, and the room itself is probably twice as large as our old one. Oh, and did I mention that we now have a flat screen TV and DVD player instead of a tube TV with a VCR. We are excited about the remaining two nights of our stay at Le Grande Rex.
Thanks for everyone who visited. We enjoyed the company and the conversation.
