So this hospital thing was not fun, it was a pain and I would not want to do it again. On the bright side of it though, I think Ben and I came out of it with a closer relationship, which is kind of funny, in an odd sort of way. If anything, I would have thought he would have been angry with me for leaving him but he has been more clingy and wanting only me since I have been home.
You might remember that, when we were in Russia, my husband carried Ben everywhere and I carried Nick everywhere because Nick was lighter than Ben. Up until the time I went into the hospital, I felt that Ben was more strongly attached, in some ways, to my husband than he was to me. I also felt that Nick and I had a better attachment than Ben and I did and it really bothered me a lot. As a matter of fact, I was praying about this before the hospital adventure. The moral of that story is be careful what you pray for because you just might get it:). I think maybe I should have been a bit more specific during my prayer time:).
Actually, I am very happy that Ben and I have a closer relationship now. It is an answer to prayer and it just makes me feel so much better. God definitely answered my prayer AND He used a very bad situation and brought something good from it. It doesn't get much better than that.
