I'm so tired. Molly is still in the hospital so I've been going back and forth to see and feed her all week, it's really exhausting. Luckily my mum has been here as Mr H is in Canada, so she's been helping me by doing the shopping, cleaning, cooking etc. I'd be in such a state without her here.

I have been getting a little knitting done. I finished a blanket for Molly while I was still in the hospital. It was originally a basket I knit ages ago which wouldn't hold its shape, so I frogged it and knit a blanket instead. I made the pattern up myself. It's knit in Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere but I don't know which colour, and was knit on 4mm needles.

I can't wait to have her back home and in her moses basket where she belongs. I was hoping she would be back before this weekend coming so I could take her to the airport to meet Mr H but I don't think that's going to happen now. I think she should be home fairly soon as she would have been 37 weeks tomorrow, which is no longer considered premature and she's starting to wake up more and has even finished drinking a couple of bottles. She's not sick at all, it's just her eating ability. The paediatrician said yesterday that her tube should be out in a couple of days so they won't force-feed her in the hope that by the next feed she will be so hungry she will eat more. Fingers crossed.

I also started knitting a little baby cardigan in Bergere de France Caline from Knits for Babies. I hope it's not going to be too difficult as it's labeled 'expert', ohh err! I'm sure I'll manage to get through it. I'm doing size 3 months, so hopefully I'll get it finished before Molly has time to grow out of it!

i'm glad your mum's been able to be here and be supportive and help with everything. especially while Mr. H is away. how much longer till he's back?

glad to hear that Molly is doing better, bit by bit. i can't imagine how much you wish to have her home. sounds like she's getting stronger so she should be able to come home to you soon. whether she realizes it or not, i imagine she'll be happier to be home with you, too.

huge hugs from Rick and me and the cats and the family, especially Rocio, who's due in a few weeks
