it's 10:49 PM, and all i really want right now is to get in my bed, get cozy, and sleep for 20 hours straight, with no interruptions besides maybe waking up on my own, only to realize that i can drift off for another so many hours uninterrupted. next to me on the couch is fern, struggling to breathe through her nasty snot accumulation, and offering up a lame cry. she's wiggling her swaddled body. we're both pathetic.
she has an ultrasound tomorrow at CHOP at 9 AM, to check on her kidneys' fluid levels. part of me is praying the weather will keep us from making the appointment.
now she's trying to latch onto my upper arm. pregnancy does great things to thighs, arms, and chins. let me tell you.
