If you missed my last post, I skipped 32 weeks because life hit me in the face with a whole lotta stress and this Momma just couldn’t hang. If you’ve been keeping up with my updates about my Brother I am proud to report he is still slowly making progress which we are so very grateful for and something we weren’t sure was ever possible in the beginning. We spent this past weekend visiting him in the hospital and the nursing staff was nice enough to let Mykenzi visit because she’s blood related. She talked my Brother’s ear off and blew him lots of kisses and for the first time we witnessed him crack a little smile. I can’t even begin to describe the amount of joy I felt in that moment. My little girl brought enough joy to my crippled Brother that he found the strength to crack a smile. I could’ve cried, but I didn’t want to cry in front of him. I’m sure he’s seen enough of that these last few weeks. Every day is still touch and go, but we continue to pray and he continues to amaze us with progress.
In the midst of all the chaos, we did manage to have a Sprinkle Shower for Rowan. We enjoyed lunch with some of our closest friends and it was exactly what I needed at that moment. Not only are our friends amazing enough to shower us with gifts for Rowan, but more importantly, they provided me with a day of full on belly laughter during one of the most stressful times.
Things on the baby front are okay. My sugar levels are really inconsistent and have a tendency to spike for no apparent reason. I’ve also had a few episodes where I test high and within 45 minutes my sugar levels drop super low causing me to shake, cold sweat, and almost pass out. I ended up calling the Doctor today because I was worried about the inconsistency, but with the amount of stress I’m under the Doctor didn’t seemed to surprised or too terribly worried and we’ll re-visit the conversation at my appointment in a few days.
So since I skipped last week these questions will include a little of 32 and 33 weeks.
