RAISING A MIRACLE

RAISING A MIRACLE

I know its been a minute since I've check in here. Things have been ok...since I last posted we went to the OB (in April) for my sonogram to check for fibroids. My appointment was scheduled for the day after our Anniversary and the original day that we would've heard the baby's heartbeat. So many emotions, but we got through it! After a lengthy and not so comfy appointment, my Doctor did let me know that I do have fibroids, but they are not causing any issues or concerns. She encouraged us to wait to try again in 3 months- in her opinion, waiting this length of time would allow my body time to heal and regulate. No problem, we aren't in a rush! I know that God has a plan and He will open my womb to receive the blessing of a baby when its time. Soooo stay tuned, I believe that whatever God has next for is will be amazing!

In other news, Jaxson recently had a developmental evaluation: Battlle Developmental Inventory 2nd Edition.

NICU REUNION

NICU REUNION

Once a year our former hospital has a celebration for all of the little ones who have graduated from the NICU! Invitations are sent out to the families and the anticipation of seeing all of our former NICU nurses and Doctors begins. This was our 2nd reunion and it was so nice to see some of the people who really contributed to the health and wellness of our son. Some of the NICU staff has become such an intricate part of our lives. We saw many of the same faces who diligently cared for Jaxson and remembered him so well. To see his former nurse Rachel who cared for him in the first 36 hours of his life was such a special moment. She was in awe of how big Jaxson is and how well he is doing. Rachel's dedication to her patients is something that both my husband and I really appreciated and the fact that she remembered our family meant a lot to me. 

DELAYED BUT NOT DENIED

DELAYED BUT NOT DENIED

If you've been following our journey you will know that it hasn't always been easy. Both my husband and I have always been on the same page about being transparent and just keeping it real. Over the past few we've both been a little concerned about Jaxson's speech. He's 20 months old and 16 months adjusted. In February we updated his IFP (Individual Family Plan) with our new Regional Center and I expressed our concerns.
