Merry 2 days before Christmas!

Everything has been crazy and busy....tis the season. John, Jocelynn and I are still fighting some kinda bug since Thanksgiving. It started as the stomach flu, then became a head cold and is now chest congestion.....I am hoping and praying it will be on it's way out of the house next!

Jocelynn has been making great progress with waking up dry! Only 6 accidents all month! I will be pushing for no accidents for the entire month of January (and beyond)!

I have my appointment on the 13th of January @2pm with the OB/GYN at Bringham and Women's Hospital. This is an initial consultation and I am hoping to schedule my exercise/stress test for the same day. I should know either that day or soon after whether we have the green light to TTC again! I have faith that we will receive good news!

Cory and Kristina found out that they are having a BOY!!!! I get a nephew!!!! I am so excited and happy for them! The end of April, beginning of May can NOT come soon enough!!!

Jocelynn is on Christmas break until January 3rd. When she goes back to school she will be going 5 days a week instead of the 4 days. She seems excited and I hope the extra day will help in preparing her for kindergarten!

With Jocelynn's new schedule I will also be working a new schedule. I am looking for full-time work again, I have told my boss, and hopefully it will happen. If it doesn;t I will be working m-f 9am - 2pm. I will not know until sometime in January if the full-time has been approved.

Things are coming together for Christmas and I have 4 1/2 days off to spend with John, Jocelynn and the rest of my family! It will be a much needed break and hopefully I can finally get back on the mend and get rid of this sickness!

Good News and Bad....

Happy Birthday Dad and Robin!!!!

My appointments on Wednesday couldn't have gone better! I don't need surgery and in fact they don't believe the valve is as bad as originally thought by the Dr.'s here. They have ordered a stress test for me to do after the first of the year. It will determine how my body is processing and getting rid of CO2. I will also be meeting with a OB/GYN who specializes in women and particularly pregnant women with heart issues. If everything goes well, I will be given the green light to TTC again!

When (I'm being very positive) I get pregnant they will monitor me closely and I will receive an Echo-cardiogram every trimester. Worse case, if I have issues during pregnancy they will do a catherization, send a balloon up and open up the valve. They don't want to do this unless needed because right now the leakage back through the valve is minimal, and they find after the balloon the leaking gets worse. They also don't want to replace the valve at this point because they don't last forever and I would end up having the valve replace every 10 years.

So as of right now we are waiting to get the green light after the first of the year!

Bad News: Grandpa was doing good, and then he took a turn for the worse. On December 7th at 9:05 pm surrounded by his family, grandpa passed. I will go into further detail in another post. Right now I am in shock and dealing.....

Happy December!!!!!!

Grandpa is doing very well. He is off the ventilator, awake, alert and making progress. It is nice to go in to see him and he can communicate! He is still in CCU (Critical Care Unit) and I am not sure how long that will be. Praying that he keeps making progress!

Cory had surgery to repair his collar bone last Tuesday. Only time will tell how it heals, praying that he has no lasting effects from this injury.

Jocelynn has had a little set back with wetting the bed. So far this month she has had 2 dry nights and 3 wet nights. I'm not sure what is going on, but We will keep working with her! (November was a good month for her, she had 19 dry nights and only 7 wet nights, we started on the 5th)

We celebrated Jocelynn's birthday yesterday! It was great and I don't think we have ever had so many people in the house. It was great seeing all the kids in their cowboy hats and bandannas!

Today we are getting our Christmas tree and decorating the house. Jocelynn has been asking to do this for a couple days. She keeps asking if it is time yet? She is so much fun this year. She gets excited about everything!
