First off...patience is a virtue, possess it if you can. Seldom found in women, and never in a man. Mama budda taught this little quip to Monica and needs to start taking her own advice (and Mama Vicki too). Uncle Ryno just wants more pictures as proof that he is NOT the fattest kid in the family anymore. So we say...FINE!
The reason we haven't posted until this point is because we knew Aunt Rosie was coming to town. We had planned to take pictures and post after our evening. Our evening is over now, so here we go. Rose and her good friend Sue came over around 5:00 and we went to dinner. Sue's son, Cody, met us there at the restaurant. We had a tremendous Mexican dinner at Arriba's, and followed that with a new game of cards. Sue and Cody taught us a game called "Golden Cadillac". We hope it replaces "quarters" at Graf family functions. Moni won both games...no big deal.
Billy started at QT. That's right...the same QT that "sets the gas prices in Wichita". He is enjoying being out of the house, making money, and "bartending" without having to hang out with customers for too long. It could be a good opportunity for when we make it home to Wichita. Moni thinks Billy looks so handsome in his new maroon shirts, khakis, and nametag...and Billy agrees with her...no big deal.
Moni is doing well at home with her terbutaline pump and uterine monitor. Our last reading only showed one contraction and very little uterine irritatability in the one hour monitoring session. Dr. Elliott's goal was to keep it under 5 contractions an hour. She is getting used to managing the pump. She has only accidentally pulled the leg catheter out twice...we are so proud of her.
Our upcoming events this week include: Broncos taking over sole posession of first place in the AFC West on Sunday, hitting the 25 week mark on Monday, Karen coming to town on Tuesday, our little Danna getting her very own sonogram (also on Tuesday), Billy getting to take off his "in training" tag on Wednesday, and Women's Murder Club TV series starting on Friday. Yes, our life does revolve around TV now. So you can see that many updates are coming...so just relax and keep on posting.
We love you all,
Billy, Monica, Pius James, Forrest Michael, Danna Lynn, and Laine Ryan
