I am fighting, but being in a battle is not always easy. Being away from my home, my Hackett, and my normalcy, is catching up to me today. Kevin has been by my side since Wednesday and having my teammate makes things easier. Hackett needs his parents, so my teammate needs to be with him so that Hackett can have the normalcy that he is missing too. My mom arrived today and will help fill the gaps at our house to help with that too and I am very thankful. But being alone in my hospital room and knowing they are home, is just so hard. Kevin will return to work and a more normal schedule this week. Knowing all of this made saying goodbye very difficult this evening.
I have had some cramping today. As a result they are monitoring Tobin's heart rate and checking for contractions three times a day, instead of twice. It is most likely just normal pregnant cramping, but I am just hyper in-tune to everything.
So I lay, pray, laugh, cry, sleep, and fight. What a year of challenges this has been.
I am Jackie.
