There is nothing better than a mother’s touch! George was enjoying time with his mother! #twinslife #nicu #Day23
Today marked the George and Henry being 3 weeks old. Each Saturday since they were born, Sarah and I have given them a bath. This week, we were able to work with the #NICU nurses to arrange the bath time to coincide with Rosebud’s fifteen minute visit.
I spent the day at The Duke Endowment and found this statue of Mr. Richard Furman, the name sake of Furman University. Sarah’s great-great grandfather was named in his honor, Richard Furman Landrum. We named our son George Landrum Rettew to honor the Landrum name, her grandmother’s maiden name. Sarah’s grandmother was a Landrum, attended Furman University in the 1930’s, and spent years documenting the history of the Landrum’s including the family relationship with the Furman family.
The morning started at 3:30am Saturday, June 10th being awaken by Sarah saying something is wrong. As I rubbed my eyes trying to figure out what was going on, I realized her swift movements to the bathroom indicated I better jump into action. As I ran into the bathroom, I looked at Sarah as tears ran down her face. I knew…I better call Dr. Hearn immediately. I wondered…how did this start.
