Back Home...

We are all back at home safe and sound! Thank you all SO very much for all your prayers! For all of you who didn't know Asher was in the hospital. I cant tell you how frightening it is to have your 6 week old baby in the hospital and to feel so helpless. Long story short(I dont have a ton of time), Jack apparently got Whooping Cough somewhere and apparently passed it along to little Asher as well as possibly myself. Its not that big of a deal for Jack or I to have it because we have been immunized but its a little scarier in a 6 week old who hasn't yet been immunized and doesn't have a lot to fight with. Thank God I am breastfeeding! Somehow Asher also had a chest X Ray that said he had pretty severe pneumonia as well but we were all stumped (Dr included) as to why he wasn't quite as sick as a baby with severe pneumonia. Anyway, either way he is being treated for both but since he made such a wonderful recovery they said he was able to come home and finish getting better here! So whether it was Lots of Prayer or a bad xray I am just glad that he is doing well and able to be at home without a bunch of wires hooked to him! I cant tell you how disturbing it is to see your little 8 pound baby with an IV attached to him. Its very sad. I cant tell you how grateful to God I am to have a healthy baby!!! Anyway, its good to be home myself as well, those hospital beds are not the most comfortable! :) Thanks again for ALL of your thoughts and prayers and I will try to blog again soon. Life kinda gets away from me sometimes!

BED? LOL! I havent slept in my bed since Asher was born! Jack and Daniel sleep in our bed and I sleep on the couch. I figure if I am going to be up half the night nursing I need the television to keep me company and to keep me awake for that matter! :) He is finally getting to where it doesnt take so much effort to nurse him at night so I will be back in my own bed soon I hope!!

Welcome Home! I am so glad to hear little Asher is better and home! We have been praying for you guys! How scary! Sorry I never made it to the hospital. I had the best of intentions, but I had some major hormonal pregnancy surges and was quite a mess and I was going to bed at 7:30 every night! I think I might be a bit more stablized now! I look forward to hopefully seeing you this weekend!

Actually, you did sleep in our bed ONE night. Remember....the night I threw up? I don't think it was you though. Just bad pizza.

I'm glad that you dont think that it was me that made you violently ill! :) For the record I didnt actually get to sleep the entire night in the bed, I went back down to the couch in the earlt morning.
