One year ago...

One year ago if I had only knew what lie ahead I probably would've hit panic mode. Exactly one year ago I went in for a routine check-up with my Dr., only to be sent over to the hospital and have tests ran. "No biggie I thought", it shouldn't take that long. Oh boy was I ever wrong, lol. I ended up being admitted (due to pre-eclampsia) than transferred up to Indianapolis after 2 days because they wanted me around high risk doctors. I tried not to get upset and thought I'd be able to go home first grab my things and say goodbye to my first born Diesel. Um wrong again! They wouldn't let me go home and sent me by ambulance straight up to IU Hospital. Then when they decided it was time to take the boys Riley notified hospital staff that there was only room for one more baby, not 3. So again I was transferred by ambulance to Carmel where I delivered the boys. After 32 days in the hospital I was set free, well sort of. I guess you could say the crazy journey had just begun. We still had 4 weeks of NICU, 2 surgeries and 3 hospitals to deal with before it was all said and done and we were all home together as a family. Whew, it wears me out just thinking about it! It's so hard to believe it's been a year. It's been one of the most difficult times, but a true blessing.


Here's me in denial, thinking I was just going to be a guinea pig and eventually go home. Huh yeah right! :0)

After I was admitted in Indy Adam brought Diesel to visit me. He put me in a wheel chair and took me up to the top of the garage level and we played catch. It made me so happy to see him, but even harder when they had to go home.

This is when it had finally sunk in, lol. I thought hey might as well enjoy myself, right? Thank God for Snickerdoodles.
