Jenyfer - Sorry I did not get back to your post sooner. I wanted to wait till I got home and than last night was pretty crazy. What I remember appreciating most were people who provided support with no judment,who really made me feel as if they were there for us whatever we decided to do and that the fact that they might have made a different choice would not change how they thought and felt about us. (Though it is hard to do that unless you are a person who really is not judging and I understood that people were all trying to be helpful even if sometimes they were not.) I also appreciated those who could to give me factual information to help us decided how we were going to proceed. Links to websites or other data that related to our situation so we knew more and could feel we were making an educated guess as to what if anything were wrong. What our statistic really were. Any assistance in being put in touch with resources that might help were appreciated. And I can not tell you how much knowing that there were so many on line friends praying for and worrying about me and my family. All these strangers sending good caring vibes in my direction.
Errin - I am 5' 2" and DH is I think 5'6", so there is not much height in our genes. There is one grandfather who was tall and there is one very tall cousin on that grandfathers line. We keep hoping Gabe got some of those genes.
I have been dragging all week. I have one horrendous case I need to write which is months too long on my desk. I have been bring it home to work on it after Gabe is asleep and staying up too late working. Then I can't think straight in the morning. Today is a crazy day. It is DH birthday, MIL's b-day, Roshashona and Shabbot this evening, and pajama day at preschool. We are celebrating the holidays and b-days in RI this evening and staying over so I had to pack bags for the weekend. I had to bring in apples, honey and honey cake for a school sharing experience of Roshashona and I am taking Gabe to RI by train, which will be a new experience. It will all be fine if I could keep my eyes open. I am sure to forget something major the way I am feeling. I forgot to say happy b-day until we were up about an hour. I remembered to pack DH's present but have not wrapped it. I am not sure where the cards I bought him ended up.
Jen - I just read your post. I am glad everything looks good for your friend! What was it that they thought they saw?
