Birthday, flu shots, and being sick...

Derek, Ella and me (Mommy not Emma) have been passing around some sort of sick colds or something for about the last 2 weeks, which is why no updates for a while. Mommy was just too tired! Everyone is doing better, but Derek stayed home from school today. He went on a cubscout camp out this weekend, because he was feeling better and got to feeling worse from sleeping out in a cold tent. He also ran into a tree and scraped up his face pretty bad. Thank God Emma has not gotten super sick, but has been a tad bit gunkier.

Last Thur we all got seasonal flu shots, Emma did great. Ella ran a little bit and we had to chase her down and hug her tight for her shot, but in the end she never did cry over it. Derek sat down and took his shot like a man. Didn't even say ouch or anything.

Friday the girls turned 5! Can you believe it? My little miracles made it to 5 years old, there were so many days back in the NICU that 5 years seemed impossible. I am so proud of them both. They got some great gifts and love them all.

Since the first week of Oct, I have been fighting nerve pain/palsy in my left hand so typing is no fun to me. Imagine your hand feeling like its constantly asleep and when you use it, its all pins and needles. I am doing home therapy on it and trying to rest it, hopefully it will heal on its on.

Please everyone pray for Emma's Aunt Lisa aka Mimi. She was in the ER last night and her blood work came back saying gallbladder problems, she is set for an ultrasound in about 2 hours to figure out what needs to be done and how bad it is. We are hoping she doesn't have to have surgery, and praying her pain stops soon. Will update you all as I can on that.

Bless you all for hanging tight and still reading our blog, I know updates have been few and far between the last few months, I will try to change that soon.
