In limbo

Kendall again. We're in a hotel now, the Stanyan Park Hotel about eight blocks from the hospital. Alas, we're again cut off from everyone -- our room is in the back corner and gets virtually no reception. So if you want to reach us, try 415-751-1000 and ask for room 108. We'll be here until there is an opening in the Family House, at which point we'll hopefully, at long last, have a good signal from AT&T.

Shelly's still doing ok. It was a rough night, adjusting to a non-adjustable bed (the one thing she misses about the hospital), but not as rough as some she had over the past week. We've got the alarm set so that we can drug her up every three hours. (She has seven bottles of various painkillers and other medicines to prevent contractions, fight infections, etc.) Otherwise, it's just more of the same, staying in bed, trying to bide our time watching tv while both mom and baby heal up.

  1. Wow, does it feel like you are in your old Columbia Law School apartment, or was that bigger? It must be rough cramped up again. I wish you well as you heal Shelly. Kendall, you are sure good at taking care of your lovely wife. I think she likes you! Are you going to be able to get out and see the city at all? Perhaps when Damon and Audrey come you can all go for a walk! Our prayers continue to be for your recovery and healing and that little Kaitlyn will grow as perfectly as possible. Take care. We love you. Mom and Dad Burr

  2. Well, at least it's nice not to be poked and prodded all night, right? Sorry the bed's not that comfy. Hope you get into that Family House soon! So glad the recovery is going well and we continue to pray for you daily!

  3. The kids are doing great. I rocked Damon to sleep tonight. I think he misses you most at night. It's pretty exciting at our house, but we feel that we are surrounded be little angels. We pray that tonight will be better for you. Enjoy the pictures. We love you so much.

    Mom and Dad and all

  5. Oh my goodness I am so glad it is this week and not last week - as I'm sure you feel the same way. Good luck!
