The biggest and most important unknowns are ahead of us and entirely out of our control, but we are doing what we can to eliminate what unknowns we can. We've arranged to take see the NICU at Valley Medical Center (the hospital where I will be delivering) and on Thursday, we will be getting a tour of the NICU and cardiac area of Seattle Children's Hospital. I know just having the visuals and something of a sense of familiarity when all this really starts happening will help us adjust more quickly and provide the best care for Ewan that we possibly can.
My emotions continue to ride one incredible roller coaster as we get closer and closer to Ewan's birth and all we can do is anticipate. Ugh. I know all we can do is pray and wait.
And just a reminder about my "Virtual" Baby Shower. Unlike other normal baby showers, this one isn't about baby swag so much as it is having a tangible reminder of your encouragement and prayers to keep with us, and one day (Lord willing) to share with Ewan when he's older.
