I am way behind!
We welcomed Lacey to our family May 27. It was the best delivery ever. The pain meds worked. I have never been numb before. It was amazing! It was also my shortest delivery, only 13 hours! She is amazing, my husband was just great. We seriously had no problems at all. We felt angels in the room, and I know Heavenly Father was looking out for us on every thing that happened. I felt calm, and most of all peace. I could have taken a nap when I was dilated to a 10, I mean how does that happen? My mom was down here helping mike with the kids. They still were in school. She is amazing. A huge thanks to her. Mike took time off to be with us, I sure appreciated that. We came home on Friday.
Over the weekend we had a lot of family stuff happen. Mikes grandpa (the one we lived with), was hospitalized, and so was his brother. It was hard to know where to be! My sisters came down for a visit, helped clean sheets., and made us yummy food. Thanks guys!
Mikes grandpa did end up passing. He died at home. He was such an amazing grandpa. We miss him.
Mike got surgery this week as well. We were a hot mess, but it all worked out. I was not in a lot of pain, so I was doing things like normal. We cared for Mike, and now we are all better!
Lacey ended up in the hospital due to a fever. I guess babys with fevers go to the ER. We ended up spending the night for observation.....everything was fine, and her tests all came back fine! Thanks goodness, what a scary 24+ hours. I spent the night too, and cared for her, she was a good little patient.
Our summer has been movies, some water slides, plays, play dates with friends, swimming, shopping, walks with the baby, and hanging out with cousins. For the most part we have been at home though. I am glad that they got this special time with Lacey. They are both so good with her. We all love her. She is such a blessing in our family! Now we can't imagine life without her. They always want to hold her, and bath her, and hold her again! Lacey is a great baby. She is so calm, and very sweet. She hardly ever cries, and she SLEEPS! Yes, she sleeps thru the night. It has been nice.
The kids are ready for school, they miss there friends. It starts so soon!
That was a quick update....but everything is good! I had some mommy blues at the beginning but got a blessing from mike, and everything is good now. We love being parents and watching them grow up! It happens so fast.
the days are long, the years are short, so short!
Update on medical stuff:
Mike does not need surgery on his shoulders!
Jess' CT scan came back normal! The lesions on her liver have not changed, no cancer!
Jess' x-ray came back okay. No rheumatoid in her back.
Ultra sound at the end of the month on her hand, to check for inflammation.
Her rheumatologist thinks she had fibermilgia. I don't know how to spell it, I still kind of am in denial!
We are back to playing Volleyball, and Mike basketball, and me, I'm running again, and doing exercises to strengthen and tone. We are happy when we are active! Kids love to tag along and watch, and sometimes, join in!!!
