Road Stop: Macon
We just returned from our extended holiday. Somehow we managed to only get (Lucy) out of the car once today. And that was to meet the long anticipated bd2, now properly identified as Macon Raynor David. He is a cutie! And tiny. I forgot what it was like when the baby’s head equals a third of the body size. I think he knew I was not his mom. He tried to open his eyes a couple of times, but kept on snoozing and smiling and making all of those sweet little baby noises. I held Macon while Sarah ate lunch and had her exit interview with the nurse. Based on my experience, I thought it would end pretty quickly. At GWU, we all had to waddle down to a class where they told us to keep our babies away from cats. Then when it was time for me to leave, I couldn’t because I had a fever from my pain. The nurse asked me when I last took my pain medicine and I had no idea. Sometime that morning. Maybe I should have listened when Carol told me to “get the hell out of GWU.” Apparently they only give you drugs when you ask for them.
Not only was the nurse pushing drugs on Sarah, she also asked Sarah, among other things, her preferred learning style. !!! Can I have my next baby at Duke? Regardless, the questions outlasted my stay. Meanwhile Eric kept watch over Lucy in the waiting room. So eventually I handed Macon back to mom and we headed back to DC. We picked Henry up on our drive in. He had a great time in Peru. We are all happy to be home as winter starts to settle in. Congratulations to Sarah, Eric and Jed! There is big news at News From the Crib all the time right now. Enjoy!
