Well here we are, almost three weeks removed. Everyday gets a little easier, but I think yesterday was the best day the Herron family (party of two for now) has had in the past three weeks. Yesterday was another Dr.’s visit. I have been geting a little stressed out when going to the Dr.’s lately considering that every time we have gone, it has gone exactly disastrously. So what will be in store for us this time? What burden will we have to bear this time?
Surprise! It was all pretty much good news.
- Jesy was cleared for work and driving! And thank GOD! Driving her around for three weeks has been nothing short of reliving Morgan Freeman’s experience in “Driving Miss Daisy.” Every route I took to anywhere was wrong, and I heard all about it. So Greater Cincinnati beware, Jesy is back. And I know going back to work will help her. It will be a good distraction and a return to normal that she is craving. It’s hard to heal when all you can do is sit at home and think about what you have just gone through.
- No more sad baby crap! No soul crushing news, no heart stopping moments, no more watering eyes (must have been my allergies to tragic events), no more restrictions, no more sad looks from the nurses or doctors, no more bleeding, no more doom and gloom.
- We got to talk about positive stuff. When can we have sex? When can Jesy start to exercise? When can we start to try to have another baby? When can we have sex? What all is Jesy cleared to do (just about every thing)? Oh and when can we have sex?
Finally, a trip to the doctor that didn’t leave me paralyzed and numb. I think Jesy even smiled when she heard that she could go back to work. Whew. What a nice feeling to leave the Dr.’s office and not want to run my car into a telephone pole. Let the real healing begin, there’s nothing left for life to throw at me for now, so its time to sit back and let the giant band-aid that is good news do it’s work.
To celebrate this, our first happy Doctor’s visit since hearing the heart beat for the first time, we went to El Pueblo’s for dinner and margaritas (for Jesy and Kat, not me). We smiled, we laughed, we weren’t burdened with an overwhelming sadness.
And on top of all that it looks like Jesy and I will be a first time Aunt and Uncle! Jami is at the hospital right now and I suspect that she will be delivering Mason in the next day or two. I had Wednesday picked last week, so I’m kind of pulling for tomorrow! A big congrats to both Matt and Jami, I’m so excited for you both, just more needed positive news for a family that has helped us carry our pain.
It might be sub freezing outside, but in our hearts the clouds have parted…..
