Fun Food With Eddie

Today we got a package from Grandma and inside was dried papaya. Eddie LOVED the strips of dried fruit, but they were tougher than beef jerky for his little teeth. It sure didn't slow him down, only made them more fun to eat. Here is a short video so you can see what I mean.

Holiday Weekend and the ER

This holiday weekend was originally an no plans, just chill, and get some things done around the house weekend. Well on Tuesday Eddie got sick and threw up all day, then on Thursday Alan took his turn and on Friday it was my turn. Needless to say those of you who know my medical history, my body doesn't react to this well so by 9:30pm Friday night we realized I lost 4 lbs in 2 days and the nurse sent us to the ER. The ER on a holiday weekend is very interesting. We had to wait forever to be seen by the doctor who determined I needed IV fluids to rehydrate as well as some wonderful anti-nausea drugs. Labwork also showed a bladder infection so we got some good antibiotics to boot. The boys were way over tired so after they got me in the back Daniel took them home and waited for me to call for a ride. When the first bag of fluids was finished I buzzed the nurse to come change the bag. Well I didn't hear back for awhile, but did hear some severe screaming and swearing followed by what sounded like a rampage of things flying against the wall. I waited for quite awhile to get the second bag hooked up and the nurse apologized for my wait as the screaming was by some guy that got bad drugs on the street and things got a bit out of control. It was 3:30am by the time we pulled into the driveway. I'm glad that Daniel had a 4 day weekend to be able to take care of boys and especially to take care of me!!! Alan's best buddy from Alabama was in town for the holiday weekend visiting her Nana and Papa so Daniel took the boys to meet them at the beach for a few hours on Saturday. Things today are finally back to normal, or as normal as they get around here. Just 9 more weeks of pregnancy discomfort IF I deliver at the same stage of the game as I did with the boys. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well and the worst is behind us!!!

So I must be cursed!!! The boys and I went to Pensacola on Wed afternoon to stay for a long weekend. We got there and their air conditioning went out. Thankfully it rained and cooled off so ceiling fans were enough to get through the night and the repair man was scheduled for Thursday. I headed to the big scrapbooking crop Thursday morning and their air conditioning was out. The repairman never made it there, but one of the Scrappy Sisters is married to an air conditioner repairman so he we were in good shape by the evening. Now this afternoon at home our air conditioner is out. So it's 8:30pm and 85 degrees in our house. We have the windows open and ceiling fans running full speed, but can't seem to locate a repairman to get here and fix it. This really sucks for a northern gal stuck in the south. It sucks even more if that northern gal is 26 weeks pregnant!!! Please pray for cool weather and for us to find someone to fix it fast.

Water Fun

The boys were busy helping Daddy do yardwork this afternoon. This is a video clip of them cleaning up before coming inside.

It's A Boy!!!

Nope, not ours, but we got a new nephew early this morning. Ian Jeffrey Saucer-Zeoli was born to the proud parents Tim Saucer and April Zeoli at 2:35Am on May 15th. He weighed in at 8lbs 1oz and was 20 inches long. Sounds like they are all doing fine after some complications during delivery. So the Saucer side now has 3 grandsons with names in order of vowels. Alan, Eddie, and Ian. Welcome to the family Ian!!!

Friday Night Freak Out

Let's start this off with letting you know that everything in the end turns out all right. Daniel left on Friday morning for a TDY that requires him to be out of town for a full week. Friday evening around 6:30pm I started feeling what I thought were Braxton Hicks contractions. They weren't going away and there didn't seem to be any space between them and I was feeling incredible pressure and abdominal pain. After about an hour of this I called the OB on call nurse who told me it was just indigestion. Well 10min after that phone call I was having trouble breathing and Alan was getting concerned so I called one of Daniel's co-workers that lives down the street to come watch the boys. When he got here and saw me he also offered to drive me to the hospital. I did NOT turn him down. We loaded up the boys and off to Labor and Delivery we went. (Dave had just been there 2 weeks earlier welcoming his daughter into the world a month early). I got checked in and spent about 4-5 hrs in the triage waiting for labs to come back. My doc walked in asked me where he pain was the worst and said that this must be baby #3 or #4 as this is quite common to have severe ligament pain. So the good news was we were not going to face the horrible things that can happen when you go into labor at 24weeks. The bad news is that I have to stay off my feet (not on bed rest though as I wasn't dialating or anything) and keep up with Alan and Eddie without Daniel for a week. Thankfully his cousin, Rachael, was able to come and help with the boys for the weekend, but had to go back to Pensacola to work this afternoon.
