Day 5 (May 15, 2009)

First, I apologize for not sending a note yesterday. After receiving a bunch of notes and calls late yesterday, it sounds like I freaked a few people out when they didn't hear from me. There wasn't much to tell, and I got busy at work so just figured I would wait another day. Right now, no news is good news!

Wednesday night we were able to take a tour of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It was a little eye-opening, and pretty tough to see for both of us. Its scary to think that our little girl will almost definitely be spending time in there. Luckily, we know she will be in good hands. They have a great staff down there and really know what they are doing. We were prepped for all the procedures and policies they have, so have an idea of what to expect.

We've been settling into our new room nice, and have already gotten to know almost all the nurses. It's strange, but at least for me it almost feels like we are regulars at a hotel or something. Nurses are only popping in every few hours instead of minutes, and since we are at the end of the hall we get a lot of peace and quiet. They even have a fridge where we can store some food and drinks.

As far as Pam goes, she is still feeling well. Started to have a little cramping, but they are attributing it to the diet and antibiotics and not to contractions. Hopefully it stays that way. Heartbeat on the baby is still strong and she's moving around a lot, which is a good sign. We're hoping to go and get some fresh air this weekend, and maybe bring Baxter (our dog) up to the courtyard or something so she can see him.

Again, thank you to everyone who has stopped by, sent flowers, called, etc. It is really helping keep her spirits up. And I think all the prayers are working!
