I'm now a working mom!

Saturday, April 07, 2012

It has been a loooong time since I updated. I just got wrapped up in life and neglected my time on Spark. I got hired full time 3 wks ago as an RN at a local clinic and so far I love my new job. My co-workers are so supportive and I love our patients. The kids are all adjusting great and it has been a smooth transition. My husband is staying home with Ben until he finds a job so I know he's in good hands.

Making progress all around

Ben passed his sleep study so we are done with the oxygen! He is smiling and cooing and all around a very easy and happy baby. I passed NCLEX so I am now officially a nurse. emoticon emoticon


Graduating and a update on Ben

Friday, June 10, 2011

Tomorrow I graduate from nursing school despite all the odds! I managed to complete all my clinical hours with a baby in NICU. We brought Ben home after a month in the hospital on oxygen. Tomorrow he turns 2 months old. He weighs in at almost 8 lbs now almost doubling his birth weight! He's an absolute delight and it's been so sweet the last two weeks since I finished my clinical hours. I just cuddle him all day :)

    I really hope you know how amazing I think you are. Finishing up your clinical hours with Ben in NICU and having to be on bed rest. And you finished before many of our classmates did! I am sure you were one tired momma but wow you did great work! I hope that the search for a job is at the least not making you want to pull all your hair out I know it is a challenging time! What is your fitness plan for this summer?

PPROM at 32 wks on Bedrest in Hospital

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

A week ago my water broke at 32 wks and I have been on hospital bed rest ever since. Baby Ben is doing great, looks so good on the monitor and he's active. The Dr's are trying to keep me pregnant until Apri 9th when I will hit 34 wks. So far I haven't had any contractions and it looks like I'll make it to my induction date. Ben will have to go to NICU but I am hopeful he'll only have to stay a few wks. I have been overwhelmed by the love and support from my friends and family during this time and they are keeping my spirits up in the hospital. It seems so surreal to think that in less than a week my son will be born!

I am still planning on finishing nursing school. My instructors have been very supportive and I have looked at my schedule and I should still be able to meet my requirements.

Thank You God
Shirley J. Stankiewicz

Sent straight from heaven up above
Came an angel for me to love
To hold and rock and kiss good night
To wrap my arms around real tight

To cuddle & nurture and watch him play
To kiss his boo-boo's all away
To keep him safe and warm & count all his toes
To hold the tissue for him when he blows his little nose

To laugh at his jokes, to clap as he sings
To tell him all the joy in my life that he brings
To clean up his play dough, to pull his legos apart
To pin up his drawings and tell him it's art

To watch his first day of school on the bus all alone
To fight back the tears as I make my way back home
To applaud real loud when he's in his first play
To help him with his homework at the end of his day

To adore & cherish and watch him grow
To guide and teach him all that I know
To see him through good times & help him through bad
To share in his happiness and cry when he's sad

To hold him close and be by his side
To watch him through life as my heart fills with pride
To help him with decisions, the best that I can
To know that someday he'll be a fine young man

Ben is head down and in perfect position for delivery. I was so impressed with the photos we got! He's got the sweetest little chubby cheeks. I think he looks like my hubby
