Did I ever mention that i got a new car last week? Ive been looking for one for months. Finally found something I liked and just in time as I really needed it. my old taurus would have been terrible to drive back and forth to the hospital everyday, probably would have overheated and died!!
Torry pie spent the night with Grammie last night. He just kicked back and relaxed on the car ride home!
My new car (new to me car) is a mercury Milan. It is very nice.. fully loaded, and comfortable to ride in.
I picked it up last saturday morning... guess how many miles Ive put on it this week????????
Eleven hundred!!! thats from all the trips driving back and forth from the hospital.
It has surely been one of the hardest and most emotional weeks of my life. I am exhausted.. and if I am... I imagine nessa and tony are 10 times more exhausted then I am. Those poor kids are troopers.. but I guess they have no choice, do they. They do have a beautiful little baby boy though. I did not take any pictures the last couple times Ive been up there. As everything looks basically the same.
(torry is perplexed about this dolls fingers... lol! He was sort of amused with grammies baby doll!)
baby Jacob has had ups and downs this week. When they removed the packing on wednesday to check where they did the surgery, they were disappointed that his intestines were still blue.. they had still not received enough oxygen to pink up. the doctors had hoped for improvement. then Yesterday morning they checked again and they were pink! nessa and Tony were feeling very encouraged by this! Little Tony went back to work on thursday .. a very long shift.. 12 hours.. then back to the ronald mcdonald house. And yesterday he did the same, only ended up leaving work and heading back to the hospital early. Baby Jacob, after having such good news with the pink intestines, had some problems. His numbers all fell.. he plummeted. (spelled??). They were very concerned and couldnt figure out why it happened. they were concerned that it had to do with the candelus (the tubes in his neck for the ecmo machine. What ever it was it was corrected. though the doctors said that it could happen again. Thankfully it has not since then. Please pray that those veins in his neck hold up for as long as they are needed for the ecmo machine. today was another uneventful day for the baby. I think those are the best days.. quiet and peaceful. to me that means he is resting, healing and getting stronger.
Robby and Marlaina... awww..arent they adorable?
OK.. its after 11:00. I guess I'll go to bed... I am so tired.. today when i was driving too and from the hospital I was afraid to blink! I thought Id fall asleep if I did! I hate that feeling.
Again.. Thank you for all your prayers. and please forgive me if I'm not getting over to your blogs and leaving comments. I've very overwhelmed and cant keep up very well right now.
