Quick Update

I am so happy to say that Amanda is doing GREAT! Her hair is even growing in, much to my surprise. The medication side-effects seems to be calming down a bit right now. The social isolation still gets to her and we invited her cousin over to play today out of desperation - with the mask being a requirement. Amanda and I agreed that she should not have to wear a mask in her own home, so it is the responsibility of our healthy guests when counts are dangerously low. Fortunately my niece will do things for me that she won't for her mother (sorry Jenny, but it's true). It's amazing the difference play time with a friend makes.

We are down to the last 15 days of the pregnancy. With each pregnancy I get excited when the expiration date on the milk exceeds my due date. My frantic nesting has been replaced with a lot of fatigue, discomfort, and fluid retention. But I will gladly take it over the hyperemesis, which fortunately continues to improve. I've adjusted to drinking without my PICC. I've had several questions why it was removed. I'm certain I have a clot, or clots, in my arm. So, I'm on an aspirin regiment (again). Oh the joys of pregnancy! I look forward to just focusing on my kids again and not so much my own health.

I promise more pictures soon. Our memory card ran out and we just got the new one. I know words are more boring than pictures, so I appreciate those of you that take the time to actually read how we are all doing.

  1. I know it's true. I can hardly get her to keep her patch on for 10 minutes. That's it, I'm sending her over to live with you. You've got so much going on you wouldn't notice another kid, would you? Lol
