This week I got a super smile! It came yesterday when I spoke to my son. Some of you may remember that a week and a half ago, my daughter-in-law was hospitalized because she was showing signs of going into labor and she was only 27 weeks pregnant. She was sent home to bed rest after they stabilized her. Well, her appointment on Monday was great. The doctor has okayed her to go back to work. The only restriction she has right now is no out of town travel and no super long work days (she was having to work 10 and 12 hour days which is too long for a pregnant mommy).

So now the baby shower is back on (in less than three weeks!) and all the planning for a healthy baby in May is back on! I will be a very happy Nana when I can hold that little boy in my arms!
