A kitchen conversation at 3:30 am

Uggghhhhh, I haven't been this sick in years. I think the past couple nights, staying at the hospital with Colby and getting very little sleep wore me down. One of the nurses said that there was a bug going around the floor and I guess it somehow found me.
I can finally keep water and cool aid down which is good because I'm dying of thirst. My fever is on it's way down so hopefully this is just one of those 24 hour things.
I just meandered into the kitchen to get myself some water and some ibuprofen as my head is pounding. Tracey heard me up and stumbled from the living room into the kitchen. I looked behind her and saw the cosleeper up against the couch. She stayed on one side of the kitchen and I at the other. We've wanted this for almost 5 years now....and it's finally come to be, we have a baby at home! When we were going through infertility we would often talk about the day when we would bring our baby home and how we'd just work as a team to get through any hurdles we encountered. It's great to see that this is coming true. We would watch the Baby Story, Bringing Home Baby and all the other baby shows on TLC. And now we have our own story, our own baby and man there's just nothing better than that.
As we stood in the kitchen, each of us with bed head and squinted eyes, we laughed that this isn't exactly the way we thought it would all happen...but either way, here we are.....home with Colby and hopefully in a day or two I'll be back on my feet. We called the doctor and he said that once I'm no longer showing any signs of sickness, I can be around Colby. I think even for the first day or two after that, I'm going to take some precautions.
Thank you all for your comments. I love the optimism! And you're all right....this is just a hickup in the big picture and the good thing...we're both home with Colby. Life is good!

I really hope you're feeling better soon so you and Tracey (and Evan of course) can really experience the closeness with Colby.
