Momma Haag with Little Momma Graf. We know, we know...little?
Hi everybody. Things have really stabalized a little bit, and there is really nothing new to report on the baby front. We will tell you about the mommas visit so far, with a little of the hospital stay mixed in.
This is our view from Moni's hospital room. Very pretty, especially at night.
Yesterday, Day 4, Marsha and my mother got up around 5 a.m. They are obviously still on "Dub time." They really felt like they were sleeping in. I DID NOT feel like they were sleeping in. That was okay though I guess, I couldn't be mad at my mamas. So we went out to get them some coffee. I took them to the QT closest to my house (because QT has the BEST coffee I am told). We got up to the hospital around 9 a.m. Moni had to do her hydro so we left to run to Sam's. After Sam's we called Moni, and she told us that they were going to do a sono after lunch. She told us to go to lunch and then come up. I took the mammas to Hazelwoods (Moni and my sports bar). They loved it.
We got to the hospital at noon, and Monica was just eating her lunch. The sono was supposed to be some time after that. We decided to start a little pitch series. Moni and I are damn near unbeatable...just ask Karen and Becky. The moms won the opening game. Moni and I came back to take the next two. We took a break. Later in the night, the run of the crappiest cards in the history of cards began. Our first three games in the series were decided by less than 5 points. The mothers hammered us in the evening session. We could NOT draw a card.
This picture is in no way related to cards...we just wanted to show how cocky they were together. Look at my mom's face. I wouldn't want to run into her in a dark alley...And Marsha...obviously one of the luckiest women in the world.
The sono had not arrived yet. Monica received her dinner, and then another great surprise of the week occurred. They had an extra dinner plate. I ate it. Moni and I finished our dinners. The sono still had not hapened, and the nurses had called down yet again. Still no answer, and the nurse left another message to sono. At this time we started another round of pitch. This is when the crappy card run began. That killed another couple of hours. Still no sono.
We asked yet again, and they said that OB Triage had closed. Moni was on the list and she was number 4. We couldn't figure out how we were still that far down on the list. The mothers and I decided to leave because Moni WOULD NOT go to sleep if we were there. We called Becky and went to Becky's favorite Mexican restaurant, Macayo's, for dinner. Dinner was great. We got home and went to bed. They did finally do the sono at 3 a.m., everything looked great. Moni was happy with it, so she didn't call to wake us up.
I woke up this morning (Day 5), at around 8. The mothers were awake at around 6, but stayed in the bedroom so I could sleep a little a longer. We got up to the hospital at around 10. When we got there, Moni and I decided that we were going to return to the dominance. Boy, were we wrong. The crappy card run continued. I am not sure that you all know anything about pitch, but here are a few examples of what I am talking about: mom asked for three cards, she got three in that suit. I got set on a bid 5, and I was holding the K,Q,joker, joker, and a trash...mom was already full with the three. Ridiculous. There are many more examples, but I will not bore you all any longer. As you all can tell, I hate to lose. After pitch, we decided to play some "Mexican Train" dominos. Marsha's crazy luck continued throughout the game, until the final hand and Moni stuck her mom with a ton of points. Monica won. I lost again. Basically, I am a loser.
Moni was starting to wear down, and she still had to do her hydro and monitoring. We left because as I have told you she won't go to sleep if we are there. As you can all see, nothing has really happened with the babies, but we are having a grand time with our mammas.
Billy and Moni
P.S. A GIANT thank you to Mrs. Judy Rapp (my mom's school principal), and Bishop Carroll to lending Moni and me our mommas.
Another P.S. Thanks to Erin, David, and Quinn for the GREAT framed artwork. We are going to hang it in our hospital room. And to everybody else for all the cards, well wishes, and prayers.
