Hello! I can't thank you enough for all of your prayers, encouragement, and sweet comments!
A few updates ~
*My neurologist told me I would have a slow recovery, removed my PICC line, and said to come back in four months. He spent plenty of time with us and answered all of my questions as well. Overall, a good report!
*My ob doctor said that Reese is measuring small but thinks she will catch up over the next nine weeks. She wants to see me every two weeks now and will do a few more ultrasounds to watch her. She didn't seem overly concerned, so I am relieved!
We have been well taken care of since we've been back home. Our amazing connection group and other friends have provided us meals. I still haven't been to the grocery store which is huge for me. Jason went to buy milk, but that's it.
It's been more difficult that I thought it would be adjusting back to being a mom to Zach and just "life" in general. Last week was difficult, but this week is so much better. I guess I was more frustrated than anything at feeling so weak. I wanted and needed to do so many things! I feel stronger every day and more and more like myself. I am so thankful that Reese is still inside me growing, and I am out of the hospital. It could have been so much worse.
GOD used and is using your prayers to carry me along. I praise GOD for answered prayers!
I am taking up some offers to help me with Zach the next two mornings. I am so excited! He will be well taken care of so that I actually get out! I'm ready, but I will definitely be driving slowly. ; )
A little comic relief for the day...Zach tried to eat a beetle! It was a "freak out" moment for me and probably the first of many concerning Zach. I think I scared him more than him actually eating the bug because I screamed at the top of my lungs...several times. Oops. I am trying to learn my lesson of staying calm in circumstances like this. I consider myself a pretty tough woman, BUT I CANNOT do any "crunchy" type bugs. They petrify me.
After asking Jesus to HELP ME, I somehow was able to get the squished beetle out of Zach's mouth with a paper towel and throw it on the floor. After I calmed him down, I called my pediatrician to ask if beetles were poisonous. Her secretary only laughed at me which honestly I was so glad to hear. She calmed me down, and Zach and I went on about our day. I didn't know if we were going to have another ER visit or what!
I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs!
