Before I went in for surgery yesterday, the nurse asked me the obligatory: "Tell me your last six months of medical history." I obligingly rattled off what has been going on since February. Before I got to present day, the nurse stopped, "Umm....there isn't enough room for all that." Trevor and I started laughing, and it felt good to laugh at something so serious.
My advice to others who must deal with a baby in the NICU long-term: Try really, really hard to find humor in stressful situations, and start a fun project that you can look forward to working on (like a glamper!).
