It's not really an update as it is so much me saying I am doing so much better. Last week was tough, but when I woke up Friday it was a different ball game. I had energy, I could move without being in pain and most importantly... I could pick up Audrey! I think that was the hardest part about the whole cysts rupture ordeal, I couldn't really play with Audrey the way I normally do. Needless to say she spent way to much time in her exersaucer last week, but I made up for it this weekend! Anyway, back to the original purpose of tis post, I had some blood taken and am waiting the results and I have a few more follow-up appointments in the next few weeks. So again, not really an update, but I am doing better and I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. I am so blessed to have a Godly bunch of men and women in my life!

Same Song... 2nd verse

So some of you may remember back in June of 2007 I had some problems with some cysts in my ovaries.. (Sorry.. a girly post coming!). This caused much sadness because it would most likely cause getting pregnant and staying pregnanat to be an issue. I know... obviously not because we have cute little Audrey here today with us. I digress. So in June of 07 I woke up and thought I was dying. I'm at a friend's lake house in the middle of nowhere and I'm pretty sure my appendix has ruptured. So the ambulance takes me to this rinky-dink clinic in Gun Barrel City, TX. They tell me all that has happened was a cyst ruptured, I was fine and here is some liquid morphine to make the pain go away.
Present day (last Sunday), I put Audrey in her exersaucer (thank you Lord for keeping her safe) and proceed to start dinner before small group. The last thing I remember was reaching down for the olive oil. The next thing I remember, I woke up on the floor racked by the worst pain I have ever felt in my abdomen. I army crawl to the place where my phone is and struggle to reach it and call for a friend "M" to watch Audrey while I proceed to die of pain. She instructs me to call 911 and says she will be there in 5 minutes. I call "B" and let him know I am dying and that "M" is coming to watch Audrey and he needs to be home RIGHT NOW. A little hard for him because he was over by the airport. I call 911 and she send the paramedics. "M" is at the house and trying to help the paramedics as best she can. I really scared her..... so sorry "M"!
After much poking and prodding on my abdomen they load me up and take me the hospital. That was the bumpiest, most painful ride ever!
So I get to the ER where I am denied pain medicine, ice chips and water just in case they have to do surgery. WHAT!!! It turns out they thought I had a ruptured muscle that would need repairing ASAP. I think. I can't remember all that much.
Anyway, 6 1/2 hours later, 2 liquid morphine drips (let me be clear... it was like liquid morphine... I just can't remember the exact name), 1 sonogram and 1 "exam" later they send me home with multiple ruptured cysts and to make an appointment with my OBGYN immediately.

I'll let you know how the rest turns out. Thank you so much for all your prayers and offers of help. They were greatly appreciated. "M"..... thanks for coming to the rescue of little Audrey and "L" thanks for keeping her company!

Favorite Things

This is just one of my favorite things to do. I cherish the opportunity to hold her.
She is so peaceful when she sleeps and what a cuddle-bug! Normally she is way to active for me to just hold her like this. In her mind, if something is going on and she can see it... she needs to be in the middle of it! I know the more mobile she gets (she has this crawling thing down!), the more rare these moments will become.

Come to the Light.....

Well, Audrey has finally got the crawling thing down. B and I enticed her last night with all the blinky lights on the gadgets of electronics that is below our TV. We turned everything on and sure enough, it was the carrot she needed to get moving. I'm not sure why we did this b/c it will add a lot of work for us to keep her out of where she shouldn't be, but it is so cute to see her crawl. She LOVES being mobile. Now, if we could just get her to realize the bottle nipple is not a straw and she has to physically tilt the bottle up to get her food we'll be doing good. I'll post pictures of her crawling and of Easter. She looked so cute in her Easter dress and big ole' purple bow!

Picture-less post

Sorry to all those who like pictures of the little Audrey. I just don't have any. Actually, that's not true. I just don't have any that go with this post! Anyway, Audrey is on the move! She is trying really hard to crawl (she is so cute!), but she ends up turning circles, and circles, and circles. I'm pretty sure her stomach has rug-burn. I'll try and get some pictures of her trying to crawl. She should have the hang of it anyday now.
I am constantly amazed at that little girl God blessed B and I with. I love, love, love that girl!

Audrey had scooted backwards and ended up partially under the chair. It was so cute.
Yeah... I don't have an explanation here.....
Still trying to master the sitting up stage (notice all the pillows strategically placed for minimum impact).

I always feel like someone's watching me.......
