Penny didn't just take care of me with Garrett, she did it when I had Autumn, too. I haven't told that story but I will sometime. Penny is a nurse and after both births, she kept track of my stitches, took my blood pressure, consulted with Mike, made sure I was still smiling, brought us "happies," played with Autumn...the list goes on. She's the one I called when I needed someone to keep Autumn while I went to the hospital, when Autumn dislocated her elbow, and YESTERDAY when Mike sliced his hand open! She spent the whole time we were at the ER texting me, giving us the lowdown on what would happen, how to care for the wound, and telling us she could remove his stitches. Penny's also the one I call when crazy messes go down, when I just want to talk, or when I feel like she might need to vent some steam. Just the other day, we talked about how great it was to have a friend you can say anything to, haha. Anyway, thanks, Penny, for being the friend who cares for me in lots of ways!
