It has been a traumatic week for me. (okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit like Mommy - traumatic might be too strong of a word), but Aunt Maureen left on Monday and that was so awfully sad, Daddy has been sick since last weekend and even Nicky hasn't been around me. He has been taking care of Daddy, so I haven't seen him much either! Mommy has been a lot of fun, but she says she is tired and sometimes she asks me really nice if I would like to take a nap. I'm not usually in the mood to when she asks, but I consider it anyway before I let her know that her timing doesn't work for me. She tells me that she knows I'm driving this bus, but I don't really know what the heck she is talking about. I do like to pretend I'm going to take a nap and then as soon as she gets in the shower I like to say HI MOMMY! That is what I call "babyfun". She has been able to get some work done because I'm very good and am quiet and sometimes nap then, too, but when she takes a break... I'm all about being the center of her world. It is my job to keep her entertained whenever I can. I know she misses Daddy being around so I'm just trying to help.
Thursday was a big day for me. I went back to my cardiologist, Dr. Johnson, at UAB. Nothing much has changed they said -other than they say I'm even cuter now! I still have to have heart surgery, but they reminded us that this is very common surgery and I'll recover really quickly and then I'll feel much better when it is all over. We don't know exactly when I'll have the surgery yet. It should be within the next month. It will be here in Birmingham at UAB - which is really well known for its excellent surgeons. I'll keep you posted on when the surgery is scheduled. I know I'll be more comfortable knowing you are all thinking of me. Mommy and Daddy will be happy to know you are thinking of me, too.
Well, it is Saturday and I'm sure Mommy has big plans for me. We had a nasty thunderstorm last night and Mommy and Daddy whisked me out of the bed. I could have cared less, but Mommy seemed much happier holding me. We even had hail and lighting and thunder. I slept through it. Perfect baby sleeping weather. I'm up now, though... so time to play!
More on my excitement later,
Love, Allison B. Lovell
