About the monitor

I know some of you were wondering why we had to have an apnea monitor. I wrote several months back how we were getting one because Nathan had SIDS. We wanted to take precautions and get one just in case. I thought it was called a SIDS monitor but its actually an apnea monitor. When hooked up to the machine it will make a loud sound if he stops breathing. I'm praying that never happens.

It was hard leaving Grayson last night. I started crying immediately after I got back in the car. I was able to pull myself together and get to the Red Cross for my certification. It went well. I missed one question and passed with a 90. I'm officially certified in infant CPR. They gave us a book and some cards. They are good refreshers. I was thrilled that we finished up early. I hurried to the in-laws. As soon as I got through the door I went over and got my baby. Best feeling in the world.

Someone will be coming out on Monday with the monitor. They would have today but the guy whose supposed to bring it was out today.


  1. I remember you mentioning that before! I'm glad got the course over with and it went good. I'm sure Grayson was happy to see his Mama!

  2. I bet you feel great now that this is over. Maybe I should get certified too... You never know.

  3. I think it's good to be certified anyway. Hopefully you never have to use it. Have a nice weekend.

  4. That must have been scary and worrisome for you. I'm glad he's doing well so far. *hug*
