He commented how good it felt to see my name on his schedule for a regular, postpartum visit. No sorrow. No tears. No sadness. Just joy. Complete and utter joy.
As we were checking out, we ran into another special person. Shawn (I can put her name on here because she has commented before... :) ) was Dr. B's temporary nurse. I was fortunate to have her for the first 27 weeks of my pregnancy. She was responsible for giving my weekly progesterone injection. She was out of the office from 28 weeks on. I was thrilled to see her walk through the door once again! She was eager to get her hands on Crosby as well.
K was the medical assistant who walked me back on a weekly/biweekly basis. After she took my blood pressure and weight, she would call Shawn to let her know I was ready for my shot. We had quite the system. I loved seeing K's smiling face every week! It might have been a little bigger when she saw us come in with Crosby in tow!
Finally there is Nurse M. She took over as Dr. B's permanent nurse. She gave my injections the later portion of my pregnancy. She was excited to meet the new addition as well.
It might seem I am a little over the top for Dr. B and his office. Maybe so. But these people mean the world to me. They were dedicated to getting Crosby here safe and sound. I could call with any question, at any time. No concern was taken lightly. If I needed encouragement, they were there to give it. I cannot imagine having walked this path with another medical team. I love my doctor and his staff and thank God for their presence in our lives. What a blessing they have been to us. There are not enough words to express our gratitude to them. But, for what it is worth, we are forever grateful...
