Bostons Birthday Party.

Boston had a fun birthday party. He had one friend come and spend the night and had cake and ice cream.

My mom and sister tiff came for the weekend and helped Jason out. we way appreciated it.

and for me I'm up a little bit more and feeling a lot better. I honestly have never expected it to be this bad. This is my 6 major surgery and I've came out of all the others great so I thought this would be a lot like it. But this has been horrible. I remember coming out of surgery and them asking if I felt alright. and I thought they got to have something wrong I not alive anymore or so it felt like it. I think it had a lot to do with losing half of the blood in my body, I would have to say that's the worse feeling ever. The nurses came in my room that night and were talking to each other and they were saying they had heard about this girl that lost a lot of blood during surgery and that shes totally white as a ghost and she is alive she just does not look it. then they turned around and they realized it was me. Doesn't that make you feel better. But I'm up and getting stronger everyday. I would just like to thank everyone that has helped so much. My mom has been such a lifesaver talking work off and keeping the kids so Jason could stay in the hospital with me. Also her and my sister Tiff coming and helping all weekend when I came home. and Jason sister Mindy for keeping the kids to. And for everyone thoughts prayers and phone calls they all been so appreciated. I wanted to tell you the story of the community shirt too. Bridger comes in one day with this shirt on I know we only have one of these shirts. the next day Boston comes in with it on. The next day Baxter comes in with it on and the next day Bridger has it on again. I don't think that Jason has even noticed that they keep taking it off and the next one just puts it on the the next morning and I have been way to drugged up to even care. I was finnally up enough yesterday to grab it and throw it in the wash. Jason has done awesome he has been such a good dad and husband. I 'm not ripping on him at all I just thought it was funny.

Heidi's Summer Vacation

Heidi is now home from the hospital. It was a few rough days for her but she is now starting to feel a little better. Her surgery was complicated but successful (the 40 minute procedure took over 3 hours). She lost quite a significant amount of blood so they had to give her a blood transfusion yesterday but it has helped her start the healing process. Heidi is getting some well needed rest right now and is looking forward to feeling back to normal. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, phone calls and prayers.

Such a sweet big brother

We took Brielle for her shots on Friday. Jason asked the boys who will go in and get the shots for your sister. Baxter says I will so she doesn't have to have any pain. What a sweet brother. A proud parent moment when you realize maybe I'm doing a OK job at parenting. I'm sure that feeling won't last long. I also went to the doctor on Friday, and I'm got to have a hysterectomy on weds. So Jason going to turn into Mr. mom for a little while. I'm hoping I'm up and feeling good by the time the kids go back to school on the 25Th. I feel relieved to finally know all be feeling better and not for that monthly visitor anymore. But part of me is a little sad. I think I've held on for so long knowing how hard it has been for me to have all the children we have. Not saying I could have another one because all the problems I've had with each pregnancy, but just knowing that will never be possible again. Makes me a Little sad. But I think the good out ways the bad. My doctor was telling me were I've had three c-section that its going to be a little difficult in surgery, where I'm never had a normal delivery, I'm to small for them to bring the uterus and stuff threw the birth canal. so they will have to cut my stomach in four different places to do it safely. So hopefully everything will go good. Wish me luck and if anyone wants to help Jason out with the kids I'm sure he would gladly take it.
