Rosetta Stone

This is an exciting week in our home. My parents are here from Texas to help us prepare our house and nursery for the arrival of baby Etta!

To make things really exciting I decided to take a trip to the ER & the labor and delivery unit!

Tuesday morning started out like a normal morning. Coffee, a little breakfast, making plans with my parents. Then, right after Robbie leaves for work, I suddenly get an intense backache.

After hours of excruciating pain and being admitted into the labor and delivery unit it was determined that I had a kidney stone. (The second in my lifetime!)

The next few hours were a blur of heavy medication and Robbie taking such great care of me!

Finally, around 11pm I passed the stone and felt tremendously better.

We stayed overnight in the hospital for monitoring but were discharged around 8 this morning.

Robbie and I had been really wanting to take a tour of our hospital but current Covid restrictions prohibited visits – well, turns out we got a tour anyways. A dress rehearsal for the arrival of Etta.

And, in case you’re curious about this posts title, my dad keeps referring to this ordeal as the “Etta Stone,” as in RosETTA Stone.

We’re both so grateful it wasn’t anything horribly scary or putting Etta at risk; her vitals were fantastic the entire time.

We’re also so grateful for friends who have prayed for us and provided support in many other ways.

Here’s a little scrapbook of photos I took during our stay.

The bedding and linens were surprising lovely
Cookies delivered from my sister and bro-in-law!
Constant fetal monitoring was slightly annoying but also wonderful to know she wasn’t bothered in the slightest by my pain
My hero Robbie took care of everything! And was calm, cool, and collected the entire time!

I’m looking forward to our return to this wing of the hospital in just about 7 weeks! Very exciting!
