Divalicious

Someone is digging the new accommodations.


And Donna's Devious Plan is totally working.  In fact, Jane might very well have moved over to the carpet side tonight except, well, I sort of balked.  There was a bedspace they were talking about moving her to, but it's in an semi-separate section of the nursery and I couldn't stomach the thought of being so isolated.  If nothing else comes up in the next couple of days we'll take it for sure, but I'm really hoping we can find a spot in one of the other rooms.  To be honest, having other people around (nurses and parents both) has been a major reason why I haven't lost my mind these last three months.

So, I got my diva on.  All those people who we'd tricked into liking us now know how demanding we are.  Just wait, I'm going to start complaining about the lighting next.  Maybe I'll insist Jane's outfits match the bedding.

Ugh.  I'm going to feel like such a jackass at the hospital tomorrow.  I'll be apologizing to people left and right for being so ridiculous.  If I weren't so lazy, I'd bring cookies.  This is how lame I am -- the only treats the staff at the ICN has gotten from my family came from my SISTER, who lives two and a half hours away and has two kids and a job and plenty of her own crap to deal with. Obviously she needs to make another visit soon, so I can stay in the nurses' good graces.

Keep that diva stuff going. Obviously, what's keeping Jane going. Strong little cookies both. And praise to every Diety in the Universe for that strength. You've waited long enough to choose your own carpet space. And, speaking of cookies, must be a bakery around there somewhere. As they say, it's the thought that counts...

I'm guessing that the nurses like you just fine, even without the cookies. Keep on standing up for what you and Jane need, and you'll be fine.

That mothering instinct will get you a long, long way in the years to come ... trust me! Sounds like you're doing all the right things, and sisters are absolutely wonderful!

Jane looks positively radiant in her brightly colored crib and sleeper!

Hey, Tia...don't think of yourself as a diva. I am thrilled you have great nurses and doctors and thrilled that you have a great relationship with them. I have alot of respect for the great nurses and doctors who have taken care of my family at various times. Having said that, don't minimize the toll this experience is taking on you and Tom. If you need something to keep you sane, then you do and taking care of you is really important for Jane right now. The nurses will understand. Ask for what you need and don't feel bad about it. You're awesome!

Yes! it's true you can't feel badly about demanding anything for your kids and glad that you are able to gather strength from all the people that are around and the hossy staff doesn't care where the food comes from I promise they would be happy with muffins from the grocery...it's truley the thought...continued love and prayers headed your way!
