|My welcome back flowers and cinnamon crunch bagel from my boss :)|
Everything feels strange to me. I can't believe it is spring because I missed winter. I suppose that's a very good thing. Still, I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation and I can't wait until Ramsey can join me. It is hard feeling stuck at home, but I can't complain...it's good to have him home with us, period.

Today, he had his second Synagis shot (for RSV) and may need another one next month; not what I wanted to hear since I am anxious for the season of germs to be over. I received this information about RSV today that helps to explain what it is and why it would be harmful to Ramsey:
"Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, causes most children to develop a cold. RSV is very common. In fact, almost all children catch RSV by age two. But for most babies born early or with certain lung conditions, RSV is different. For those babies, RSV can lead to serious lung infections like pneumonia and bronchiolitis. In fact, RSV is the number one reason why babies under 12 months old in the US have to go into hospitals."I'm glad we were spared by today's tornado! Our deck had 2 inches of hail in spots. I don't know when I've ever felt so nervous over the weather, but I tend to be paranoid these days. I know it's irrational, but I fear that something bad is going to happen to one of us because Ramsey is doing so well. I keep thinking of stories I've heard of soldiers who survive the war only to suffer some tragedy at home. I wonder if there is a name for this type of fear and if or when it will end for me.
