On Thursday morning, Jake's Dad will pick me up and I will head home to spend Christmas with Jake & Allie. We will keep things very low key as I am still on limited activity / bed-rest. It will be so nice to be home, sleep in my own bed, eat homemade food, and spend lots of time with Allie. I know it will be very tiring for me, simply being around so much more commotion than I'm used to here in the isolation of my hospital room. But it will be so worth it.
Then on Saturday evening, Jake & Allie will bring me back to the hospital, and I will settle back in. This way Allie will know where I am; I don't want her to think I've disappeared. And with any luck, we will have a couple more weeks here before we meet our next little girl.
