An attempt to catch up.
Now that school is out, and I don't have anymore major projects to help the kids with, I think I may attempt to update by blog. I went looking through my pictures and realized how behind I really was. Here we go.... Presidents Day! I know, this was only 4 months ago. We went to Utah for Presidents Day and had a great time. Right before we went, I had an unexpected ectopic pregnancy. It was pretty scary, and according to the Dr. it was really bad. It had burst into my abdomen and I was on the verge of bleeding to death. the strange thing is that I didn't even know that it was that bad until after my surgery--which by the way, they had to take one of my tubes for obvious reasons. I had been spotting for 2 weeks, but thought I was just having an irregular period. I never thought I could actually be pregnant. Then on Friday, I tried to get into my family Dr. Since I didn't have an OB, and He couldn't see me. I thought I'd wait it out over the weekend and go in on Monday. That night I decided to take a pregnancy test which was positive and so I just assumed I was having a miscarriage. The next day I was humped over the toliet in pain, chills and nauseous. I decided I better go to the ER with a little push from my friend Cherie who I really think was God sent. She had had an ectopic before, and I think she knew that's what was going on. I farmed the kids out and Owen took the rest of the day off and took me to the ER. Sure enough, that's what it was, and 8 hours later and $30,000 I went home. We were stressed becuase my insurance doesn't cover anything pregnancy related, but they were nice and payed $25,000 of it. So....the reason I post this is because exactly a week later, we were in Utah and my friend Maria and her family were going tubing at soldiers hollow. Owen was going to take the kids and I was feeling so left out. So I sucked it up and went. I felt fine, but some of those hills were a little bumpy! Afterwards we went to lunch and then to The Homestead to swim in the crater which I wasn't able to do. But I would hands down go tubing again. Having a tow rope take you back to the top with 6 different paths to go on makes it well worth it! Audrey on the Tow rope Drew on the tow rope Drew and Gavin Audrey and Kesley The Lovebirds The Fam!
