Relief!!

Ok, I think I can return to the land of the living.

I just cannot even express the extent of my exhaustion last week. Being a single parent is absolutely the HARDEST thing I can imagine.

Silas did great at swimming lessons. His teacher seems to really like him. She's about 17 and very sweet. Hattie LOVED fairy princess camp. She went in a princess costume every day. And she learned some dances and made some cute projects. VBS was great. It was a Tour of Jerusalem thing. So the kids did pottery, woodworking, hebrew jewelry, ate Mediterranean snacks...and went to bed way to late for us!!!

My mom had her gallbladder removed on Friday. We tried to be of a little help, but I'm not sure if that was accomplished.

I had many meltdowns and pity-me moments. And I have NEVER been so glad to see someone in all my life as I was when my dad dropped Jody off at our house at midnight on Saturday.

I have some video and pics to post. I will work on that, promise. The relief of having Jody home has brought me some energy...after nap time of course!

Now this is weird. I have an OB appt on Wed. But the nurse called and said the Dr wants me to have a level 2 ultrasound tomorrow (tuesday) because the "other sac" looks small. WHAT??? I knew the ultrasound tech saw something odd, but she never said it was definitely another sac. Ok. If that is twins, I may...I don't know how I will respond. That's at 2:30 tomorrow. I really don't know what I will do with that news! Stay tuned till tomorrow!

Oh my goodness! That would be exciting! I will be waiting to see what the dr. says. :) I understand completely how hard it is to handle the kiddos when your hubbie is gone - and I only have 1! I know you are glad Jody is back home.

Maybe the additional sac is just a forebag?

I don't how you can be pregnant and still involved in so many things? Remember it's okay to say no sometimes and rest. Ugh, I'm not even pregnant and I get tired just hearing about your schedule.

Holy cow! That would be WILD - your blog would be the best blog ever if it became the blog of a mother of 5 - including twins!

I recall that your family visited Miami shortly after you had Silas and we all went to the mall together. While we were walking around we saw a woman with twins and I remember that you said to me: "I just don't know why God gives some people two at the same time." Ha! That could be you - meant with all kinds of kindness - you could handle it.

I am excited for you and at the same time really praying harder then ever for you. I know Jody wants a big family, but 5 would be a lot. You all are in my prayers!

Wow how exciting. But glad it's you and not me!

Welllll, I'm trying hard to think what the technician means by "other sac." Could it be an inexperienced tech talking about things that don't concern you? Or it really could be twins...and if so, then you are doubly blessed. I'll give it to you straight...it will be hard since your other three are so young and can't help a great deal but you will feel soooo privileged if you get to be a mom of twins. It's wonderful! I'm just glad God decided it was best to wait until my other children were old enough to be a lot of help. But, seeing how well you do with Silas, Hattie and Luke, this won't be a problem at all for you and Jody. If I were you, I'd be on the phone pronto asking the doc and the tech what they meant. Praying for you either way. Love, Kathy

Emily,
If it's twins, you will be very blessed....and I'll be very excited for you! I always wanted twins, but alas, God knows better than us and only gave me singletons, while my friends around me, left and right, were having twins. Seeing them, I know it can be very difficult that first year, but somehow, with the good Lord's help, you make it through. If it's twins, you'll do wonderful, I know. You're such a great mom! But, please let us know ASAP!! I'm anxious to hear, as are so many others. You're in my prayers. Blessings to you all. :-)
