hello cute jeans!

I have been feeling better and better lately. My energy level is coming back slowly, and I am enjoying all the little things in life that I am now able to do again. I even got brave yesterday and tried on my favorite jeans... They were definitely tight, but I got them on, so that was encouraging!  I finally got the chance to drive my car again too.  I am used to driving about 2,000 mi per month, so to stop driving completely for 8+ weeks made me really miss it!

I went for a Postpartum doctor's visit yesterday, and I seem to be on my road to a physical recovery (finally). My BP is still running high, but they are not concerned with that. Dr. Rao said that it may take a few more weeks for that to level out. My pulse is now normal as I go about my daily duties. I'm sure that the low pulse rate was just a result of the bed rest.

Tonight, Josh is taking me on a date!  We used to make it a habit to go out every Friday by ourselves and do something, so this will be a nice treat.  He won't tell me what he's got planned.  All I know is that I'm supposed to be casual, wear jeans, and bring a jacket.  Hmmm... What could that be?!?

  1. You're going to see a movie! It always gets chilly in the theater, that's why the jacket. I'm so glad you are doing better- I put ya'lls story on my blog to get you as much prayer and good vibes as possible.

    Have a great time on date night with your hubby!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
