Positive thinking

I am trying to remain positive. Really I am. But I'm not loving it at our new home. It's like I'm in a foreign country, but I don't speak the language. It is so different here. At UCI it was peaceful and quiet. I feel like Davy is living in a crowded restaurant now. We have a lot of criers in our room of 5 babies. Our first day here I left so sad. I didn't want to leave her here with these strangers. Will they hold her when she's sad? Do they know she has the cutest smile, if they just look her way? Scott kept telling me let's try and be positive. We are here for a reason. We thought it was for a heart surgery. Could there be another reason? I dunno. As for now, I will try and think of the positives, Like..................
1. Nursing moms eat free at the cafeteria. I am a total sucker for free food.
2. The pumping room has current People magazines. I do love my celebrity gossip.
3. I found these cool chairs(see above picture) to take my next family picture on.
4. If Davy can sleep here, she can sleep a n y w h e r e.
5. Maybe I will find a 5 tomorrow.

Hang in there. Enjoy the free food. And the blessing that wee Davy doesn't need the surgery after all.

Sending prayers to uplift you.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a clear ECHO on Thursday. I have seen that little munchkin through some rough nights, and I know that she will fight back!! We miss you in the NICU. :(

I can't help but think there is a reason you are at Choc...but if it doesn't show up soon, we need to get you back to UCI.

I am sure the staff at Choc are wonderful..but the new NICU at UCI does not compare. Give me the word and your big sister will start making the phone calls for you. Ok I guess I should try to be more positive like you.
