Happy slightly late Valentine’s Day!

Sean made a point of coming up to the hospital yesterday to see me like he has every day since I’ve been here. The fact that he comes up so often is definitely a sign that he loves me because he hates hospitals; yet, he never complains about the time he spends driving back and forth or sitting in the room with me. Yesterday, he brought a Valentine’s Day card with him and had written on the inside:

“I’m glad to spend Valentine’s with you. It’s not where you are but who you are with that matters.”

Doesn’t that just melt your heart? *sigh* I’m so in love with my husband! Plus, I’ve developed the world’s biggest crush on him over the past few months. :-)

One of the hardest things for me is being away from Sean. Even though I see him every day, it’s still hard to see him leave at the end of his visit. I know it’s just for a short period of time, but I miss the days when we could cuddle up together on the couch or fall asleep holding hands. At the same time though, we both hope it is several more weeks before I find myself back at home. I think that’s why our Valentine’s evening meant so much to me.

Last night, he created an in-room date night for us. He showed up with sandwiches from Planet Sub (whoohoo!) and used a free Redbox code to rent “How to Train Your Dragon.” Then he surprised me by staying overnight on the cot that a nurse brought over from the Mother/Baby unit. We were actually moved to a new room about five days after we got here due to a flood of women who came in to deliver babies. I’m now on the Comp Unit (Complicated Pregnancy Unit) in a room that is much smaller with older furniture (and without the stellar shower that I loved so much). The furniture threw out Sean’s back and shoulder when he tried to sleep here the first night we were moved, so he’s been going home to sleep in a real bed since then. However, last night, he decided to try to sleep here again. That is some serious love! Even though the cot was a little better, I still don’t think he slept much. But I was pretty excited to get to spend extra time with him and not have to say good-bye at the end of the evening!

Why would I need to go out on the town when the love of my life is willing to spend his evening in a hospital room with me? Did I mention how much I love my husband? :-)

  1. Continuing to pray for every precious moment that you are able to carry your quads and for a safe delivery with healthy babies! Thanks for the update.

  2. Thats good to hear you got to spend Valentines' day together. That sucks that they had to move you to a smaller room, the room you had was pretty good. I know when I stayed with Stephanie in the Labor and Delivery rooms, they were so tiny with not much room to move around. Sometimes they had a chair the reclined which was not very comfortable, so i would sleep on the floor which also wasn't comfortable but you could stretch out somewhat...well thats if my legs were under the chair. When she was in the mother/baby rooms those were much better they had a couch the folded out in a bed, but most of the time i just slept on the couch.

    Well keep staying strong your almost to 27 weeks.

  3. You guys are so adorable! Glad you had a great Valentine's Day!

  4. Wow, this post really took me back to hospital bedrest days. So hard having to say goodbye every night. Glad your hubby got to spend the night with you (mine rarely did because I had to keep it so freezing cold in my room to combat the mag effects!). :)

  5. Becca - that is probably the most romantic Valentine's Day I've heard about so far!

    I love you and I'm praying for you as you continue to grow the Ishum family.

    Love you!

  6. Speaking from 45 1/2 years of marital bliss I firmly belive that a deeper love comes from the trials and tribulations you must face in a good marriage. (And as you may or may not know we have had ours.) We have always used the 3ply cord (God, Richard and myself) to build our marriage on. With God beside you, you perserve and grow in love!

    God's blessings to you and Sean!

  7. I grew so much more in love with my hubby while I was pregnant too. I got to see a totally different side of him. It's one of the biggest blessings of having children.

  8. I'm so glad your husband spent the night with you. I only saw my husband one night a week due to our 2yr old son not being able to visit during flu season. Great job on making it this far. Your going to be a great quad mama from what I've read. It's a challenge, but so much fun. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Hang in there mama!
