Children's Hospital accepted Jack - which I guess is good. YAY, your baby is sick enough, we'll take him!! It's what everyone wanted and at the same time, part of me hoped they'd say, nah, he'll get better, just keep him.... it's nice to still be a little delusional I guess.
They didn't have transport for him today though, so most likely tomorrow (Tuesday.. which wait, is now today, since it's after midnight....)
Our priest came to the hospital today and baptized Jack. It really made me feel better, like he's a little more looked after by heaven now. One of my most consistent prayers has been to the Blessed Mother (she and I,we have a special relationship, well to me we do anyway, I have a very strong love for Mary and always have) - anyway, I've been praying to her specifically every night to watch over Jack and love him and take care of him as a mother when I can't be there, to please, comfort him and keep him safe and protected. Today Father Ed said almost exactly what I had been praying in his prayer over Jack - he asked the Blessed Mother to be another Mother to him, and watch over him. It was like, he had been listening in on my silent prayers, and made me know that she is doing just that.
We're doing okay. Girls are grumpy (constipated, stupid formula, I just have not been making enough milk) and my poor neglected cat has scratched a huge patch of his hair off. PJ has chewed away all his fingernails and I've eaten about 12 pounds of leftover Halloween candy. So at least we're all a mess together.
Still though, PJ said tonight despite all the stress and tears and everything, this is the happiest he's ever been in his whole life. And I know what he means. Imagine how happy we will be when Jack comes home, and we're all together.
In the meantime, these two entertain us.
I mean come on, you gotta admit, they're pretty freaking cute. Though I might be biased. :)
