He's just amazing...

My nurses -- minus the Tic -- are doing a great job taking care of my body, but this guy gets the prize for tending my heart.

Jim is here (almost) every day for lunch, and shows up like clockwork every day after work, staying until I'm ready for my Ambien dose. And I know he's exhausted. He's still giving 110% at work -- which, for Jim, may mean setting the alarm for 4:30 am, to make sure he's ready to face the day -- at home, at church, with our rentals....you'd think there wasn't enough of him to go around, and yet he manages to get it all done -- and get it done well.

He knows my biggest fears and insecurities about this hospital stay, the looming delivery, and the daunting reality of bringing Sprout home, and he knows how to alleviate them all. I can't say enough about how proud I am to be his wife, and how happy I am to be giving him a son.

You think he's awesome now, wait until you go into delivery--he'll go into overdrive (or he'll pass out, one of the two). :-)

I am so glad he's working so hard to stay near you while you're in the mommy-to-be penalty box. I can't imagine how hard it is being in there for as long as you have. You two are holding up beautifully :-)

He is such a great guy & I'm sure he's going to be an amazing father. :) However, he needs to remember that he has friends that can HELP HIM, too! That's right...I'm talking to you, Jim! :)PLEASE (as I've said a million times), let us know if you need anything at all! Good luck with the final countdown!

that's sweet monica! i remember when i was in the hospital for like 3wks before i had caleb, and jeremy was the same way, would work and come right there afterwards and stay there till bedtime, when my ambien kicked in. it worked for like a whole 2hrs and then i was up all night. lol i was so glad my parents were able to stay with tyler so jeremy could be with me. it's so nice to know that when you need your husb he will come through for you!! :) you always hope that they will, but when they prove it to you, it's the awesomest thing. :)
