Yesterday I had some excitement with the McCain/Palin rally at the ford Field house. I could see the secret service men on the roof of the building next door. They were up there all day with binoculars, but I didn't see any sniper riffles.
Today I got to have lunch with some of the other girls on the floor. It was sponsored by March of Dimes and the NICU (neonatal unit here). Lunch was brought in from Panera Bread. I had a turkey sandwich with cheese broccoli soup - don't be jealous Tim! It was a nice chance to get out of my room and meet other moms who are also on bed rest. One mom has been here for 4 weeks, one 3 weeks, me, two weeks, and lots of others who have been here around one week or less. Three of them were pregnant with multiples, and one mom is here for the third time on bed rest and made it 6 weeks and 8 weeks last time she was here. We mostly talked about how we ended up here and how far along we are or if we had other kids at home. I wish I would have asked what they all do to pass the time. Maybe I could have gotten some new ideas. Tim's friend Troy seems to think I need to learn to play the banjo while I'm here. Wouldn't that be funny? Hey, you never know what kind of talent I will get to thank baby DeHaan for :0).
