Anniversary, Two Weeks and My Brother

I'm feeling better. Well as best as I can. The past couple days have been really up and down for me. It was Gabe and I's anniversary yesterday so we decided to just take a day off from everything and just be us again. We spent the whole day together and just talked. We went out for dinner and went to see a movie just like we did before all this craziness.

It's been two weeks since Olivia passed. I'm dealing with it better. The hospital hooked me up with a grief consular and that has helped a ton. Addisyn and Savannah are doing amazing! They took out Addisyn's umbilical cord line today as she will not be needing daily blood tests anymore. We haven't been able to touch her since last week but she opened her eyes at her daddy today! We're thinking Addie might be a daddy's girl and Savannah (who we've now been calling Anna thanks to my 3 year old niece who has been tripping over the name Savannah since they were born) will probably be a mommy's girl.

Yesterday at 8 pm we got a call that my brother was in a car accident. He's 26 and engaged. He was hit by a drunk driver coming home from his fiance's house. He broke both his legs, snapped his arm in 3 different places and shattered his pelvis. The drunk driver who hit him walked away from the scene completely unhurt. He's in stable but critical condition and they're pretty sure he's going to make it but will take a while to recover. Please pray he makes a speedy recovery as seeing his wedding is planned for May 7th!

  4. I just wanted to tell you that my husband was in a similar car wreck with with a drunk driver and sustained similar injuries one month before our wedding. He was in the hospital for 2 weeks and had to walk down the aisle in a walker since he stubbornly refused to postpone the wedding. That was almost nine years ago. Sending prayers for you brother and your babies from a fellow preemie mom.

  5. This is a fake blog! She is a fourteen year old girl PRETENDING to have triplets and making a fool of those who have lost a baby!
