Cute Pics

Not to toot my own horn or anything but I do think my kids are pretty cute :)
Jyllian got to go on a special date last night--she got to go watch Horton Hears a Who with her Grammie. Mom came and picked her up for her date and Jyllian was all dressed up. So I have some pictures of that. I also am sharing some cute pictures of Jyllian and Cohl. Hope you enjoy.
We are doing better. I am getting more and more energy every day and am finally off bedrest. YEAH!!!! I had my follow-up apt with my Dr. and we are not sure why it all happened but it seems it is all fixed. So that is good. I wish I knew why it had happened but I guess it is just one of those freak things and it happened to me :) Lucky ME! But I am okay that is what counts. Thanks to all of you for your thoughts/prayers. Hope this finds you doing AWESOME!

On the Up and Up!

Some of you know about the problems I've had, some don't. I won't go into great detail but will update those of you who don't know whats been going on. On Sunday (Mother's Day) I woke up in the middle of the night hemmorhaging. At first I didn't think it was that big of a deal but was a little freaked out. I tried to get ahold of my mom but she wasn't answering the phone, so I called labor and delivery. The nurse told me to get to the ER as soon as possible. Tried to talk me into having the ambulance come and get me, but I honestly live 2 blocks away from the hospital. I had Justin go to my mom's and wake her up to come take care of the kids. We got to the hospital and luckily they took my situation seriously. They gave me IV's in both arms, examined me and got my dr called and in to perform a D&C to try and stop the bleeding. I got into surgery by 6am. I lost a lot of blood during the whole ordeal and ended up having get bags of blood. I went into shock during the surgery and when I came to I was being put into an ambulance to be transfered to Wyoming Medical Center in Casper. My Dr. was sitting right by my side along with other EMT's. I wasn't real sure what was going on but she explained that the surgery didn't stop the bleeding so she wanted me to get to a hospital that could perform an emergency hysterectomy if needed. So I went to Casper and spent Monday and Tuesday up there before they finally let me come home. Luckily I didn't need to have the hysterectomy, and the medication they gave me while in Casper helped to slow the bleeding down enough to be able to send me home. So thank goodness all is okay. I am on strict bedrest right now, not able to do much at all, but also do not feel like doing anything. I am very weak and have no energy. I hate not being able to do much with my kids and while in the hosptial not being able to hold my babies. Gosh it was so hard. I just ask that if you could please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that everything is finally over with and we will be on the up and up!
Luckily my mom was able to take some days off to take care of Jyllian and Cohl while we were in Casper. Justin has been awesome even though he hasn't gotten much sleep. God has truly blessed us with a wonderful baby as Cohl has been doing awesome and sleeping good and eating good for us. I am not sure that I would be able to do it all if Cohl was a fussy baby. Jyllian is such a great help. I know she is ready for mommy to be back to her old self and be able to play with her. Its so hard not to be able to pick her up.
So that is what has been new with me. I am hoping to be feeling like my old self again soon! Until then I will just keep truckin' along waiting for that day to come :)

Happy Mother's Day

What a wonderful mother's day I had this year! I was able to spend most of the day with just my litle family--Justin, Jyllian, Cohl and myself. We then met up with mom and Shane later in the day to go out to eat and do a little shopping before coming back home. I enjoyed my day and wanted to share some pictures of our day!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! Hope you had a great day!

Our Family Update

He has arrived! It was a pretty quick and easy labor--they broke my water at 7:30 and I delivered him at 10:41 after only pushing for 10 minutes at the most. All went pretty well. I didn't need pitocin, so it wasn't a true induction. I was thankfulHe is perfect. Had a little trouble keeping his body temperature regulated but that was all better by Thursday. He is a little jaundiced so we have had to bring him back up to the hospital daily. The yellow in his skin and eyes seems to be going away day by day, and his levels are little down so hopefully we are in the clear. He is continuing to loose weight--all due to his jaundice as he doesn't have the best appetite.
He is a great baby. He sleeps great--even during the night. He feeds okay--still is only a snacker--doesn't eat a lot at one time. At night he goes 4-5 hours before he wants to eat again. Its been great :)
I am beginning to feel better. My blood pressure is still a little high and I still have a pounding headache--3 weeks of a daily headache is getting old but hopefully once my BP starts to go down my headache will go away. I know that once my headache goes away I will feel back to my old self--headaches just kind of make you feel icky.
Jyllian is a great big sister. She is a big helper and loves to hold her baby brother. She is a little jealous--which is understandable and has begun to be a little pill in the past two days but I know this will come and go and we can get through it. She is a mommy's girl so mommy giving attention to someone else is a huge deal for her. She still loves her brother though and just adores him.
Justin is adjusting to be a new dad again. He has taken some time off of work which has been great. He doesn't go back until the 3 week in May so he had 20 days off. Its been nice having him home and he has enjoyed spending time with the family. He is such a great daddy! I couldn't ask for a better husband or dad. I am truly blessed!
So I think that is all for now. I will try and get new pictures up as we take them. I love to take pictures-especially of my kids so I will be taking plenty. I am sure you will get sick of seeing new pictures. I will hopefully be better at keeping our blog updated.
