ROBOT FAMILY?

I'm not sure if I can adequately describe how bizarre this moment was, but I'll try.

So I was all wired up with my halter monitor and sleeping in the room with Maxwell. (Our night nurse took a holiday vacation, which she definitely deserves!) Mr. Max was having a very difficult time sleeping (which has been the case all week due to various health issues) and I tried rocking him, playing with him...anything to ease his discomfort and make him happy.

He was definitely tired but his stomach was giving him a lot of problems. Finally we laid down together in my bed (next to his crib) hoping that this would help him relax. That sounds easy to most parents, but when your baby is hooked up to three different machines, it can be a little cumbersome.

Then add in my ten wires and monitor. We must have been quite the sight. Then Max spots my wires and starts pulling at them. Trying to keep a kiddo away from his AND your wires is quite interesting! The most comical part was that finally we managed to take a brief "nap" at 3 in the morning, and I wake up to our wires being all tangled together. Robot Mommy and Robot Baby!

Fortunately Max had a slightly easier night yesterday AND I was able to finally remove my halter monitor (48 hours). When I was ripping the tape off (yikes!!!), I gained an entire new appreciation for Maxwell!

Max, you and mommy were all wired up, but it wasn't wired for sound.

Amy, I'm praying everything turns out OK.

Love & Prayers,
