I don't have much to report, but didn't want to leave anyone hanging, either. First off, my friend's mother has recovered enough that she was able to be driven back home to Kansas. She has been transferred to hospice care there. The hope is that she will be more comfortable in her own home.
Secondly, the P family has all been reunited with their new children. The plane ride was survived and everyone is starting the process of readjusting. It's tiring work finding a new normal, but even with a few bumps here and there, the process seems to be going as smoothly as could be hoped.
Lastly, I'm still pregnant. I'm sure everyone has figured that out since there has been no post along the lines of 'They're here!" with thousands of pictures of cute babies. Tomorrow is 37 weeks, which makes them full-term. So I can have them any time. Really. Any. Time. Waking up at night is extremely painful due to the sciatica and muscle cramping. Last night was so bad I briefly thought perhaps I had been having silent labor and was in transition. No such luck. Walking is somewhat painful, also due to the sciatica. I've known 90 year old women who are more agile than I am now. Let's just say I'm pretty pathetic. My newest obsession is that I will go all the way to my due date (or later). I have a history of being overdue and the way nothing seems to be happening, I'm beginning to think I will not be having these babies anytime soon.
I will be sure to have someone post when (if?) these babies arrive. But, until then, I'm not sure that I will have much to post...it would be just a lot of me whining and not very interesting to read.
