The most handsome boy got to spend his last day in the hospital yesterday. He’s perfectly fine, but mom had to recover from her cesarean surgery.
We had him at Patewood Hospital in Greenville, SC. It’s mostly a maternity building, so things were pretty calm. We did hear that someone gave birth in the parking lot because they didn’t make it in time. The hospital staff were experts. The doctors did things perfectly and the nurses were a tremendous help especially as I’m a first time dad and mama couldn’t do a whole lot because of her c-section. The nurse in the picture was our favorite.
I was very nervous about driving him around. I trust myself, but other drivers, not so much. Doesn’t make me feel good that a careless and selfish idiot could recklessly put my son in danger. He was pretty good in the car. He made a few noises but daddy was driving as smooth and slow as reasonably allowed.
It was relieving to finally have him home. I think Alexander realized being at home is much more relaxing and peaceful than the hospital.
