How we're doin

I just want to thank every one for your prayers and thoughts. It made me feel so loved to know that so many people were concerned for us. I am feeling much better this week and I am able to get around and get my butt off the couch. Elena and I were finally on the same feeding schedule and I found out that I had a small infection and had to be put on antibiotics for 3 days and I was told to discard my breast milk. So for the past 3 days and nights I have been feeding Elena formula and then pumping to keep my milk up. It has been really difficult not to breast feed her when I can tell she would rather have that than a bottle. Plus it means I am up longer with each feeding so Im pretty tired. So physically I am doing better and emotionally I am doing better as well. I have been busy checking things off in the positive column that make feel better about not being able to have any more kids. We have actually come up with a lot of positives, number one being alive to raise my two children. My mom has been awesome helping me while Jesus is at work since I cant lift Patrick for 4 more weeks. I honestly have the best mom in the world. I also had my wonderful friends, Katy and Lindsey, come over to help me and have some girl time with me. I love you guys, honestly. I cant wait to do the same for you when your babies are born. I plan on having pictures taken this week so I will soon have some to post, maybe even family pictures (wink wink Dave). Stephanie will hopefully be having her baby this week so maybe even cousin pictures. Too bad Lucia and Elena arent together so we could get pictures of those cute cousins together:(

Remember how we told you about "Dave" at KFC? He was a regular substitute at both Highland and Foothill! Anyway, I'm glad you're feeling better too. If you want some help with laundry or another meal, I'm here! So just let me know!
