I have learned a lot in the past couple weeks. Some things I could have gone my entire life without knowing and others I'm glad that I do know now.
First and foremost, I am glad to know that my hubby is proud of me. We are not big into sentiments but on the way home (from the hospital) a couple days ago he said he was proud of me, I had a really bad day and he thought he needed to tell me. We are a team and I hope it stays this way for a long time/forever.
That I think I'm a good mom (not the best but good), the NICU is a dark place. My babies have been there for 7 weeks now and I have only seen some of the parents twice or not at all. One baby is addicted to drugs (it cries all the time) and another didn't have a name for a week then once it had a name the parents gave it up (social workers have to come in and approve anything that has to be done to the baby). It is a sad place but that is where I get to hold my babies so I am happy about that part of it.
I know who my real friends/family are. I can not believe some people are so low to talk bad about you behind your back especially when you are depressed about something or are having hard times.
When I watch The Little Couple I know almost everything Dr. Jen is talking about while she is at work.
People are so kind. Some people that I am acquaintances with are praying for my children and sending us cards. So wonderful.
The March of Dimes is a great charitable organization. One that I do not think gets enough publicity.
Health insurance (or any kind of insurance for that matter) is not there to help you, it is there to give you a headache when you need it the most.
A couple days or a couple ounces is a lot to a preemie. Things are completely different from week to week even hour to hour.
I'm sure there is more but I can not think of it right now but I can always add to this list later.
