Life at the "Hostible"

So, it has been three weeks since I have been in the hospital. The Dr. has decided to deliver me at 34 weeks due to the fact that my water level are "dangerously low". The baby is doing really well on his stress tests and all seems to be well with him. The hostible (as my kids call it) is starting to really take its tole on me and I can not wait to go home!! I tell Clint this just about everyday. My amazing friend Lynette took my kids to Thanksgiving Point the other day. She told me that they were making throwing coins in the fountains and making wishes. Tate wished that his house was a hospital so that his mom could come home. Absolutely broke my heart. Life at the hospital is a roller coaster ride and my emotions are everywhere. I love to see my kids and I am so excited when they come. I have to make myself not cry every time they leave. Once they are gone I usually loose it. It is so hard not to be with my family. The unknown of what is next also just about makes me crazy. With all of this Clint has been my rock and when I am loosing it he makes me feel better. He is the best dad and husband ever and I am forever grateful that I have him!

My kids and Clint made this shirt and one for the baby while they were at Fish Lake.

My first wheelchair ride. I only get one a day. I love getting out of my bed and my room. We usually just let the kids play have dinner outside and just talk. It does good for my head and my soul.

Tate at home talking to me on the phone. We do a whole lot of this.

Abram at home with the goggles my mom got Nolan while watching them during the day. My friends and family have helped so much and I can not thank them enough!! It makes me feel so much better to know that they are being well taken care of.

We did get to have a couple of sleep overs on the weekend. The boys had so much fun. They thought it was great sleeping at the hospital. We watched movies and had popcorn and I loved watching them sleep. It made me so happy just to have them here with me.

After our sleep over Clint took the boys swimming all day Saturday and then came back for a wheelchair ride and dinner. Clint is the best!

My boys at the pool. Our all time favorite thing to do in the summer.

Some of my visitors. Ashlyn and Jake came to visit. Lindy came for the whole day and then stayed to watch our favorite show the Bachelorette with me. I know it's terrible....but it like a train wreck and I can not look away! Thanks everyone who has come to visit. It makes the time go by sooooo much faster!!!!

Grandma Becky brought lunch. My favorite thing here are the picnics outside. I love not eating a meal in my bed.

Only 4 more day and we will have another Spencer boy. Thanks again for all the help everyone has been so far. I hope and pray everyday that this guy is going to be so healthy and strong and we can take him home soon and get back to our normal life with out any hiccups.
