Our marathon week is officially over. This one was tough. Dave was working Monday night and Wednesday night (all night). He got home about 8:30pm on Tuesday, 7:30 on Thursday and nearly 8:00 tonight. Since Daniel's in bed at 7:00, Dave did not see him awake AT ALL on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Today he was at a conference nearby, so he was able to come home for lunch, which was great. I really thought he was gonna end up having seen Daniel on Sunday and then not again until Saturday! Holy cow.
This kind of schedule is tough for Dave as a dad - being at the hospital all the time and not being able to see your baby. It's tough for me too as a mom because it means that it's pretty much all me all the time. It's been a tough sleep week too and this mama is TIRED. I know I'm not the only one in this kind of situation, which helps, but it's still hard. But now it's Friday and Dave is off all weekend. Time to catch up a bit and hopefully rest.
