Prayer request

well my ob called me today to tell me that my baby has a 2 vessel cord (instead of 3. I have to go see a perinatologist and get a more in depth u/s to check for any other things wrong. apparently 80% of babies with this are perfectly fine. the other 20% can have iugr, heart issues, kidney issues, or a variety of chromosomal issues.. But since everything else looked great on the u/s I am prob at very low rosk for something else being wrong.. from what i can read on it i will most likely end up with a few u/s to watch the her growth and then the last 8-10 weeks i may need to get nst's to makesuresheis getting enough o2 and not under stress. Say a prayer nothing else is wrong. I am still waiting for the office to call me to set it up. Hopefully it will be sooner then later.. though they may want to wait till later to see how much growth there is between now n then.. who knows.. just a waiting game now

or maybe i should say wretch... Cay has it now. Poor little man was up all night puking. He did NOT like it one bit either. And it upset Jarod everytime he did it. The 2nd time he got sick after bedtime bythe time he was done puking Jarod was standing in the hall whining. He really can't stand pukeing. So I moved him to the couch for hte night since he has school and I didn't want him being woken up every hour or 2. Cay last threw up round 4AM and has managed to drink and keep down some water so far this am. So he is due to puke again soon. Hopefully it won't be as long as Kiaras. He is older and bigger after all. Hopefully noone else catches it. Myself especially!

2 hours in urgent care this morning... fun... Kiara threw up last night again.. but seemed fine this morning. Then I took offher diaper and there was this orange film over the top of it (she had only peed) then I sat her on the toilet to pee. and when she was done there was like orange grit in there... So I called dr they wanted me to take her in for a urine test just to be sure. 2 hours later.. they tellme she is dehydrated.. (DUH she spent the last 48 hours puking) that there was some solids theysaw (crystals) but he said it is common when a child is sick as the liver is working hard because its dehydrated... SO once she is alllll better I am to take her in for another check to make sure its gone away. When she peed there I saw nothing in it so it was already much better. She has been her normal self today eating drinking and playing.. SO hopefully it is gone. She spent ALL of yesterday sleeping or crying.. LITERALLY ask Kenny lol We are lucky the walls don't have holes from us needing to bang our heads against them... ANYWAY fevers gone. shes eating and drinking and hasnt puked... she is up and playing and hasnt slept.. so no worries shes gettin better.. =)

Let me count the ways

that I detest cleaning up puke.... My poor baby girl has been throwing up since thursday evening. I am hoping we may be over it she hasnt heaved since about 4 this am. She couldn't even keep water down. This am she has managed to keep down about 4 ounces of water and 2 peanut butter crackers. She has been asleep for about 2 ours already.. No pukethough so thats good.. I must say that every towel and towel ws dirtied over the last 2 days.. Iv got 2 full loads of them alone going through the wash. (and my washer/dryer hold alot) Hopefully no more puking!

Evan decided he wants to do basketball this year. (we decided he has to do a sport each year) I just enrolled him last night.. It is winter basketball and starts in Jan. He is excited. Hopefully they won't have practices on scout nights. Or have them early enough it won't matter. They let me enroll him in the younger age group. (If I would of enrolled him when registration started he still would of been 8 so they let me) I really didnt want him playing with up to 11 year olds! He would be TOWERED over. Shoot theres a few girls in his class who TOWER over him! They are darn near as tall as me! But at least he isnt quite the shortest kiddo in his class this year. Thats all for now.. Almost time to go get Jarod from K.

Join the band

As I posted previously Evan decided to join band this year. He chose the sax. The elementary schools don't provide instruments here (his school has 3 none of which was a sax.) SO we went yesterday to 3 different music stores here. Only one was open. So we went in and got everything he will need. His music book, cleaning kit, music stand, neck strap, reeds, cork grease, mouthpiece, oh yeah and....

We are quite impressed. He already figured out how to actually make it make noise.. REAL noise too not just squeaks n farts... Getting your mouth just right on that reed is not easy. And he got it! It is going to take a little practice to remember to hold it right (fingers in proper places) especially since he has such teeny hands. He can barely get his fingers to the key spots lol.. let alone carry it about.. He is SO excited and I am excited for him! Kenny told him to be sure n listen good so he can come home and teach him (Kenny) to play too. He starts classes next Tuesday. WHOOHOOO looking good Evan!
