WOWZA!







Okay, sooooo much to say without trying to write a novel...
Keaton came home on Sunday! FINALLY!!! I did not believe it until he we were halfway home and I kept looking at him thinking "is this really real that my baby is coming home!" It has been wonderful. Tonight I was sitting on the couch with Cortney watching a movie and holding Keaton!! It was such a simple thing, but yet I couldn't get over how wonderful it is to just hold my baby whenever I want!! Keaton is on oxygen when he sleeps to help prevent any apnea spells and so far it is working, he has gone 10 days now without a spell!! So we turned down the settings a little today at the docs office, and will turn them down again in 4 days if he continues to do well...so we are making great progress.

Monday was unusual- I got up and prepared to go to the NICU to see Keaton- just out of habit...then I was realizing he was right there in the bassinet! I almost called his nurse twice during the day to check on him out of habit...I was going crazy! But it was so amazing to have so much time to do things around the house and not have to drive to the hospital again...

Monday night I started having some severe stomach pain...really crazy back pain with it. I woke up in the middle of the night with a fever and passed out in the hallway. I had my mother in law take me to the doctor the next day who pushed on my stomach and the right side killed. It also really hurt when he took his hands away...which I guess is called rebound. So he believed I had Appendicitis..and sent me to the ER. After a 3/4 of the day stay, they did a CT scan of my abdomen which showed NOTHING. Everything looked normal. So they gave me pain meds and sent me home. The medicine they gave me in the ER however, made me very nauseated and I threw up about 6 times that night. After I threw up though, I felt tons better.

This morning I felt a lot better but still went in for a follow up with my primary doc. We went over ever detail of my life to try and determine what is causing the pain- and the pain is still stronger in my right side. After some further tests, we believe it is an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. I only have my right because my left was taken out due to an ovarian cyst that wrapped around it and killed it...and that was very painful. So Monday I am getting an ultra sound...

I am feeling muuuuuch better tonight, but still having some pain. My ward, who has, by the way, watched my kids for like 13 weeks now and brought us meals here and there, stepped up AGAIN and brought us dinner all week, watched my kids yet again and been so wonderful with phone calls and e-mails of concern. I am so blessed~~

So tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am feeling overwhelmingly thankful. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am so excited to be better and get to spend it with my all of my crazy boys!!

Yeah Keaton! I am so happy for you to have your baby home. I am so happy he is doing well. Now you need to rest! It sounds like your needing to be home as much as having him home. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

OH, Happy Day! Your boys look so happy to have their little brother home. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and let's get together to cut your hair when you have a sec. I'm still willing to do it, if you would still like to do it. :)
