ER visit

6:40 PM

Starting Monday morning, I began having some stomach pain, which I quickly realized was my wonderful gall bladder.  I came home a bit early from work, and took it easy for the rest of the day.  Unfortunately, it wasn't going away, but wasn't anything too horrible that I couldn't cope with it.  Tuesday, same thing.  By 5 pm, it was beginning to spread to my back, so I called my surgeon for some guidance.  Instead of me getting some quick lab work done here in town, she preferred that we go to the hospital to be checked out.  So, we called our church friend Jessi to watch the girls, and off we went.

Got to the hospital and checked in around 7.  Was pleasantly surprised at their fast pace this time, as I had a room and blood drawn within an hour!  I also had a very painful ultrasound of my gall bladder/kidneys....the tech pushed oh so hard, and it was just plain miserable.  The one positive, is that we got to see the BABY!!!  He was laying with his spine up this time, and she double checked, and it's still a BOY!  Heartbeat was around 138, so he is doing perfect!

I ended up being sent home a little after 10, as there isn't a lot that can be done right now.  The baby is too large for surgery, so now it's pain management.  My white blood cells were elevated, and my surgeon today wishes that they WOULD have called her and kept me over night, but oh well.  I am at home, on an antibiotic, taking it easy, and hoping to feel better soon!  I have to say that I am very much looking forward to no longer having a gall bladder....

Just now finally got to downloading a piece of our ultrasound with our little boy!  Avery was video taping!  We got some hands on this one :)

We just returned from a fun trip up to Nana Judy and Bapa Ron's house!  It's always so fun to go up there, and especially in the summer time!  Nana and Bapa have a pool in the backyard, so the girls just LOVE being there :)

No trip would be complete without going to Storybook Land :)

This huge tin man slide was a new addition this year! ;)  

The girls have never been on the train around storybook land, so we were sure to do that this time! :)

Tuesday night we went out to a fancy wayside restaurant for Nana and Bapa's 42nd anniversary!

The drive home is always a bit long, but we try to make it fun!

Happy 11th Birthday Avery Joy!

10:22 PM

Our sweet Avery turned 11 on Friday!  Where oh where did the time go?

She has been VERY interested in the musical WICKED, so there were numerous requests on her "list" for WICKED items this year :)

We met up with Olivia's former speech teacher, Rachel, at Applebee's for lunch!  Such a nice time catching up, and celebrating Avery!

For supper, Avery requested McD's....I put her birthday candle in her chicken nugget, and off we sang!

(yes, she usually can eat THAT many fries)

Today was her birthday party!  She had 6 friends over, and we opened gifts up quick, and then headed out to Despicable Me 2!

I am convinced that this is the way to have a birthday!  I did little to NO work, and Daddy paid!  WIN WIN!!! Oh, and the birthday girl AND her guests had fun, so that is good, too!

It was a hilarious movie, and I think that Daddy and I laughed more than the girls :)  So, so funny!

We love you oh so much sweet Avery!  Happy 11th birthday to YOU!

trip to Wisconsin

7:39 PM

We left on Thursday for Nana and Bapa's house in Wisconsin.  Avery had an allergy appt, so we were able to enjoy the 4th of July there as well.  Mommy did quite a bit of shopping for baby boy while we were there!  

Our family from Maryland were in town, so we got to catch up and have fun!  Olivia and Rebecca had a great time playing!

our family!

all of us!

Nana and Bapa took the girls to the Children's Museum.  From the looks of it, I think they had a lot of crazy fun!

They were both very brave and did some rock climbing, too!

We went to the aquatic center 2 nights, and they had fun there, too!

Bapa even had the guts to try the big slide!
