Day 90

This is Day 90, the day Mira died. I'm home in Texas and Ruth and Chris are still up in cool Washington, much better location for a pregnant daughter. I'm anxious tonight, checking and rechecking Ruth's blog for entries, trying to assume Sprout is alive still. They do have the Doppler with them to check. I know there's no magic in passing day 90, no guarantee, but it does seem significant. I find myself reliving the days right after Mira dies, the sorrow I felt then and the desire to ease her parents' pain - such hard days.

All is well. (No spotting or anything!)

So good RU - so good. I just want to wrap you and Sprout and Chris all three in my arms and rock you - onward to new territory! I think it's incredibly sweet that Joe bought Baby Bottom Butter for Sprout.
