Accomplished or Closure

It's amazing how getting something done leaves you feeling accomplished.  I ordered four dozen cookies each for the NICU, the 2nd floor maternity staff and my OB's office as well as a bouquet of flowers for my OB's wonderful nurse who drove me to the perinatologist when the demise was suspected, stayed with us during that exam and just provided support and help that was well beyond the call of duty. [She actually was even late to a doctor's appointment of her own because she stayed with us at the perinatologist]

It's an odd feeling of completion.  You would think bringing the boy home would have, but somehow thanking some of those people who were so critical to the entire process feels like the moment of closure.

Lake Austin Sunset is what they call them...
A sunset seemed fitting.  Cookies are less "fitting" and more tasty and able to have delivered around shift change!


  1. You are so sweet and generous! :) I'm sure they will all enjoy them!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow, what a journey you have been on. I will keep you and your family in my prayers!

  3. It was a mutual "making of the week" society. My nurse called and said it made her week, which made my week!
