Good night, bad day

It's always good to hear that your baby did well overnight when you call in the morning to check in. Although It's hard to leave Alex, going home and getting a good nights rest really helps us all and gives us the energy we need to get through each day. Usually by the time we leave the hospital at night, one of us is already crashed on the couch or in a chair.

Alex remains stable and it's looking like she will be here for a few days. So far it's been a stressful day and Alex can't seem to get comfortable. I don't know if she just feels awful or if something else is wrong but she is nowhere near her cheery self. She been fighting her sleep for hours and she's wearing down so I'm hoping she'll be able to get some rest this afternoon.

It's nice to see all the comments today and we appreciate the prayers. Keep them both coming - we could use some encouragement.

Thinking about you guys! I wonder if the Easter Bunny will be making his rounds at the hospital....?! (I can just see him hopping around there... too funny!) Here's to a speedy recovery!

Winning the Triple Crown usually lands you on ESPN, so I'll be watching for her tonight

Anyway, as always, we're thinking about you and your amazing strength. Many blessings this weekend.
