Kendra Settles In (Photostory)
In yesterday's story, we got to see Kendra get checked in. She is now dressed in her night gown, and resting somewhat uncomfortably in the bed. Nurse Sasha took her vitals, and has just brought Kendra some dinner, and Nathaniel a cup of coffee. I changed the bed from yesterday because this one is smaller and the tray fits across the bed.
"Can I get you anything else?" (Nurse Sasha)
"That's all for now." (Kendra)
"Will the doctor be stopping by later?" (Kendra)
"He will be making his rounds before he leaves for the evening, so chances are he will stop in to say hello." (Nurse Sasha)
"I'll check on you in a bit. Enjoy your dinner." (Nurse Sasha)
"Honey, are you hungry?" (Kendra)
"There's plenty here to share." (Kendra)
"No, you eat. You're going to need your strength. I'll grab something from the cafeteria a little later." (Nathaniel)
Just then, William and Camille appear in the doorway.
"Well hello guys." (Camille)
"Aunt Camille, you came!" (Kendra)
"Of course I came. Where else would I be?" (Camille)
"Come. You guys have a seat." (Nathaniel)
William sits, while Camille goes to give Kendra a hug and a kiss.
"So what's going on with your dinner? You haven't even touched it. You know you need to make sure you are eating." (Camille)
"I know. I will eat it in a few. I'm trying to let this indigestion pass." (Kendra)
Camille sits at the foot of the bed and kicks off one of her shoes.
"I'm surprised they admitted you before you were fully in labor. They don't usually do that." (Camille)
"The doctor is just being very cautious because of all my issues. I am having contractions, but they just aren't close enough together yet." (Kendra)
"So how you holding up, man? (William)
"I'm hanging in there...." (Nathaniel)
"Why are you asking him, how he's feeling? I'm the one who's going to be in excruciating pain." (Kendra)
"It's not as easy for the dad as you might think. We don't like seeing our women in so much pain. Especially when we can't do anything to help take that pain away. You have to remember, I went through two pregnancies with your aunt. Man, when she was pregnant with the twins, I thought she was going to kill somebody. I'm sure I was at the top of her list." (William)
Camille starts laughing.
"I was a little rough on you, wasn't I?" (Camille)
"Rough? Rough is putting it mildly." (William)
"Nathaniel, just remember, that probably won't be Kendra, your wife, in that delivery room. Sometimes during delivery we are just not ourselves. So don't take it personally, dear. She will return as soon as she lays eyes on that precious baby." (Camille)
"Okay Aunt Camille. Thanks for the advice." (Nathaniel)
"I like how you guys are talking about me as though I'm not even here." (Kendra)
The Langfords stay until visiting hours are over. Nathaniel leaves for awhile to get a little work done in the hospital. Kendra is finally able to eat most of her dinner, before the nurse returns.
Just a reminder, I have a Kendra look alike doll on my dollpages for sale. Can you believe I found yet another use for my little white table. I just recently put those back in my Etsy shop for a great price. The food and tray are from the Rement airplane food series. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
