Day 3 (May 13, 2009)

Yesterday went well. Pam still has no feelings of contractions, which is a great sign. She was taken off the baby monitor, and finished up her last round of IV's this morning. She also was able to change into her own clothes, which she enjoys a lot more than an hospital gown! We've been told she can get around in a wheelchair if she needs to get some fresh air, or just get out of the room and tour the hospital, so we're hoping to start doing that once a day. Our mothers are doing a great job keeping Pam company during the day so that I can return to work. Luckily, I'm not that far in case something does happen.

We were able to move into a new room with two beds (so I don't have to sleep in a recliner). She is now in room 3-416, which should be a permanent setup until the baby is born. If you would like to come visit, here are some easy directions:
1) Park in the North parking garage (on Murdock, just east of Hillside)
2) Enter the hospital on the ground floor and follow the hallway just past the information desk to the first bank of elevators
3) Take the elevators to the 4th floor
4) Take a left off the elevator and go to the end of the hallway, last room on the right

Again, there are no restrictions on visiting hours, but if you are free during the day it is a better time since there are a lot of people stopping by in the evenings. I think she has plenty to keep her occupied now, thanks to everyone's gracious donations of books, games, crosswords, etc. Feel free to call anytime, especially if you are planning on visiting - our cell #'s are listed below or you can call the room at 316-962-3592.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in their prayers, called, emailed, visited, etc. I know I haven't responded to everyone but I'm doing my best. We really appreciate all the love and support. Its awesome to know there are so many people that care.
