I got a text from our DIL a little while ago. She and baby are both doing good, and she's expecting to be released today, but with the flooding they can't go anywhere. It sounds like the hospital is going to let them camp out in her room. That's not entirely a bad thing, since they'll be right there with the baby.

My daughter-in-law sent me this picture a while ago. I'm in the house, and it's been raining for three days, but somehow dust blew in my eyes when I saw it. Or maybe it was allergies.

Very sweet. So glad they're doing well. Please tell her (from this fellow mother of a "serious" preemie) that she really needs to rest and recuperate from the surgery. When you get a c-sec and a preemie at the same time, it is very very hard not to try to rush the recovery (wanting to see and care for baby). But she's (presumably) just had major surgery and it will take her several weeks to recover. Learned the hard way, hope to spare someone else. Make sure she's getting the care she needs; everyone's focus tends to (naturally) turn to the baby but mama just had major surgery

I really appreciate all the congratulations and good wishes. He had his first checkup with the pediatrician today, and is doing fine. He's up to 5 pounds and 18-1/4".

We were invited over for supper tonight, and I held him for a while. I understand what everyone says about how much fun it is to be a grandparent.

I fondly remember the birth of my sons. Mark was 9 pounds 3 ounces. Josh was 9 pounds 13 ounces and born one year later. My mother in law looked over at me and said "Wow, what a good cow - she produces big calves and breeds back quickly."
