I've been in the hospital

On and off since Tuesday.

Yeah, I guess my head has been else where dealing with the stresses of life and when I was chopping up some fruit I decided it was a good idea to chop my finger also...

Believe it or not it went almost all the way through and I may not be able to bend that finger ever again.

Who needs that one when I have 9 others, right?!

Good grief.

April Fools!! ;)
I had to do something!

BUUUUT, I have really been in the hospital on and off since Tuesday because my brother and SIL had their baby...little Damien couldn't wait three more weeks.

He is 4 pounds 3 ounces and even though he's in NICU for breathing issues-that are working themselves out which means he'll probably get to go home soon-he's quite the feisty one and absolutely gorgeous! There's something about your own sibling becoming a parent that literally melts your heart. Here's a picture of the beautiful Damien:

I'm so in love.

I think he wanted to come early so he could see the Texas Rangers start their season...Go RANGERS!

It has been a crazy week, it started out rough, as you can tell by my last post, but then my big brother called about little man coming early and it seemed that all my anxieties melted away.

The beautiful miracle of life.

That and your prayers having given me so much strength, I'm so bless to have each and everyone of y'all apart of my life...THANK YOU!


Ps..sorry about the April fool's joke, I'm one of those people that have to play at least one trick that day (last year I told everyone we got a puppy-I'm wild and crazy I know-everyone fell for it of course!)

Before I knew it was a joke, I was just going to say that I'm glad it wasn't your Gig 'em thumb. :-)

You totally got me too! I kept thinking - how did she doctor that picture up (no pun intended)...but then I read the comments and figured it probably wasn't your figure at all!! Congratulations on precious Damien!!!!

Sarah said...

Oh you totally got me! lol. I honestly believed you because I am so accident prone. Just a few years ago I put a knife through my hand while carving a pumpkin, and last year I had pins in my middle finger thanks to being dragged by a horse by that finger. lol. Whew, glad all is well.
