Today was the NICU reunion party at the hospital. It was great to show off the boys to their doctors and nurses who haven't seen them since discharge. As always, it was wonderful to hear how well the boys are looking and have everyone blown away by how chubby they are! For the most part the boys just slept through it all, unaware of everyone's admiration. Jordan, Rio and I had a great time....until a father of a toddler let his son repeatedly put his saliva soaked hand in Nolan's mouth (with Jordan awkwardly repeatedly taking it out). I guess even other parents of preemies can be clueless and that kind of ended the day on a bad note for me, as we have been SO germ conscious! At least I got two pieces of cake and an ice cream sandwich to soften the blow.
Oh right, and then there's the fact that the CBC radio guy interviewed me about the boys and our experiences. So that's cool. NOT AT ALL. I wasn't helped by the fact that Jordan skulked away the second the guy came over so when I thought we were both getting interviewed, really it was all me. Booooooo. At least one of the other neonatologists shared the same fate, so hopefully between the two of us we come off sounding ok!
Rio has asked for a new picture for my facebook and my dad wants a new one of his grand kids, so what better time than when all three of them are gussied up for a party!
