Don't you love when you get to your mom's house for Thanksgiving dinner and in the process of getting your baby out of the car you snag her feeding tube and pull it out?
What? Your baby doesn't have a feeding tube? You are so missing out.
Three hours is how long we spent in the ER on Thursday afternoon waiting for the on-call radiologist to leave his Thanksgiving dinner to come and put Emily's tube back in. Nothing makes me want to swear more than Emily's feeding tube.
And if you add an oxygen tank to the mix...well, we may never leave the house again.
I'd like you to know that I fixed dinner today AND baked chocolate chip cookies yesterday.
Holy cow that's amazing. Trust me, it really is amazing...well, except for that part where I sliced my hand while slicing an avocado.
Our little lady is doing well, thank you for asking. It seems she falls asleep a little earlier each night and almost always sleeps through the night. As she continues to outgrow her shunt she will have less and less energy. When she's awake she's an incredibly happy baby, and loves to smile and play with her mommy and daddy.
Yesterday she was lying on the couch watching TV. I happened to look over at her at the same time a man on the TV smiled. Emily saw his smile and smiled the biggest smile back at him. She's truly a joy.
In other news...
I found 17 new grey hairs.
Jason lost his car keys.
A very kind blog friend brought us dinner.
I wrote 12 thank you notes.
I almost had an attack of vertigo. It was close. It scared me. Thankfully my medicine worked.
My washer is going all day long, thanks to the blow outs Emily has at least twice a day.
A third baby girl joined our family...we love you baby Lizzy.
My sister found mint m&m's and bought me a bag.
Emily got to meet her adopted grandparents and aunts who came from Mexico for their daughter's/sister's wedding.
|Don't ask me what I was doing with my smile...I have not a clue.|
I think that's all the other news.
|If I could talk I would say, "Seriously Mom? Can you add any other tubes/tape to my face? Give me a break already."|
We've got two weeks...December 13th to be exact...until we have to take Emily back for her next
We don't love open-heart surgery - but we love that surgery gives our baby girl a chance to live.
