21 weeks and back in Dallas

I keep promising to write more but each week, life continues to steam roll. It’s true this is a busy time anyway with the move and new home and all but as soon as I come up for air, another wave crashes to shore and I’m underwater again.

As I write this, I’m back in Dallas. Mom’s usual bad health took a turn for the worst. Thankfully, my hubby was able to take a few days off and watch Kai as I dropped everything and flew out here.

The good: Mom is stable for now

The bad: Congestive Heart Failure compounded by pneumonia, excess fluids, overall weakness.

The plan: Hospital inpatient until the pneumonia is in check and IV antibiotics are over, then to rehabilitation center to gain strength and energy to undergo testing on the heart. Long term goal is to maintain heart with medicine and attempt independent living if possible.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Although I have to go back home tomorrow, mom has a good support system in place with my sister and brother-in-law living here and for that I am extremely thankful.

Now, even in the midst of this, there is still a very important part of my life going on..that is, the expanding belly.

Before I was able to hop on a plane to Dallas, my new doctor wanted me to get “cleared” to fly. A good precaution with twins and considering my history. Luckily, everything looked great and absolutely no signs of pre-term labor so he ok’d the flight. Lucky for you, this means I have a few pictures to share.

Baby A kept showing us the side profile with the mouth open…aww cute.

 Baby B was in a little better position. He/She gave us some awesome front pictures. The eyes and eyelids are there and in a few more weeks, they will be able to open. Amazing.

To come: Who knows. I give up guessing what life will bring.
