The kind, lovely nurse took Ellen to the nurse’s station for 1.5 hours so I could rest. I was starting to worry about my ability to cope and care for both Baby’s needs and my own on so little sleep, but I’m back on track now thanks to that break.
After the 1.5 hour kick start, Ellen came back in snoozing so I got another couple hours as a lovely bonus before a wake up call. She’s back asleep now, but in my arms, so I think I’m done for the moment.
Feeling grateful for the rest and for our nurse. Life is looking pretty good after some shut eye!
