Update, GD Hospital Food Anyone?

So, I'm in my room... Baby is doing great on the monitor!  Yay!

I've been keeping in touch with the outside world giving updates and getting things done. Can't get a stable connection via my laptop, but I'm rockin my Droid. :)

Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and concern... It means a lot to know you guys are  out there rooting for me and my little girl! 

Speaking of which, I just had an uplifting conversation with Stacie, of Here Storky. Thanks so much for the chat girlfriend! 

So, dinner is served... What are we having? A GD dinner was ordered for me...  Hmmm....
- A roll - high glycemic index, check!
- Apple sauce - high glycemic, ck!
- Apple juice - hg index, ck!
- Rice, plain (we wouldn't want any spice to get on there, would we?) - very high glycemic index, double-check!
- Cooked carrots, totally plain, thank you very much - also very high glycemic index, double-check!
- Piece of over-cooked lightly spiced chicken - whew! Thought they weren't going to sneak anything healthy in there!  Just made it!

So, I sent it back. I just hope this crushed ice isn't all I get until hubby gets here.

Maybe you got someone else's meal? Because that is just ridiculous!

Stopping in by way of Stacie. Good luck and congrats on the baby girl! said...

I hope the c-section goes smoothly and you can eat something delicious soon!!

Csection - no sweat! You will be STUNNED how quickly you recover.


Have a magnificent and wonderful day tomorrow.

Too bad you wont sleep at all tonight....

Stopping in via Stacie's blog. Wishing you the very best of luck tomorrow. BTW, I've had 3 c-sections. The key to a quick recovery is to get up and walk as soon as they will let you. It helps more than you will ever know.

Hi, congrats! Just looking back on cyclesista posts from the same time as me. My scheduled csection is 11/10. Take it easy when you get out of the hospital.

I am happy to announce the birth of Dawn's daughter, Miss M, today around the 8:00 hour! She is 5 pounds 12 ounces and 18.5 inches long.

Miss M came a bit early, so she's in the NICU on CPAP for some breathing support. She seems to be doing well! She has a great sucking reflex and grip. :-)

Dawn is also doing well and feeling a much better after a somewhat hellish c-section experience. She is in good spirits and focused on her little girl.

I'll be posting updates on my blog if/when Dawn needs me to. You can check for updates here:
