Kyrie has slept through the night with only two scary desats and one mad scream at a tech who tried changing her diaper for her.

She has blankets rolled around the edge of her bed because she is on seizure precautions while they test for seizures, even though she has never had them that we know of.

Nathan let me sleep on the couch, and he started out in the recliner that doesn’t recline, but ended up on the cushions on the floor.

Since he was here, I took my ears off and recharged my processor batteries while he was up and down all night after nurses for beeping machines.

I love him.

Soon as I woke at four, I moved him to the couch bed and I got up to shower and dress and eat a bit of breakfast so I am ready when she wakes and presentable for whenever rounds happen.

Nathan got us breakfast last night, running to the store to make sure we had something healthy to eat.  He found us yogurt and green juice mixed with some fruit.  That was so kind of him!

One of us will go relieve his parents for a bit later, once we get news from rounds about what is happening next.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
