Postpartum

Filed Under Us

We are still here in the hospital, just moved to the postpartum area. Everything is going just fine, and Liz is doing so well that we might be out of here later this afternoon. Thanks to everyone that came by (Phyllis, Dave, Chris, Mike, Joanne, Mary, and of course Iris). We appreciate the company, and of course, the turkey! WE MISSED THANKSGIVING!

I posted more pictures from last night and this morning in our pictures section. Check them out!

I was curious too, and wanted to know how often these rare “early” thanksgivings are, and it appears that they happen every five years. I know for a fact that the next “Thanksgiving/Birthday” for us will be in five years. But I have not found a good algorithm for determining the date of Thanksgiving yet, just what appears to be a bunch of people with calendars that go out several years opening them up and looking… I will try to research the problem more and let everyone know more!

Things are progressing. Liz’s water was broken by the doc, so we are waiting for a change now.
