Hey everybody… I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve checked in but I had a few minutes so I thought I try to catch up with you all. I hope everyone is doing well… I know things are so crazy everywhere with LIFE, COVID, and POLITICS but things have been especially crazy for us here lately.
Little Shyanne had her open heart surgery this past Monday… yes, we were scheduled for October 21st but things happened and we got postponed however little miss wasn’t too keen on being delayed and she let us know rather quickly that something needed to be done ASAP!
The past few weeks have been rather scary but we are so happy to be over that part and the road to recovery right now!
Hi everybody… I just wanted to stop in and let you know that I haven’t forgotten about my blog. Things have been a little crazy and I’m just starting to get on top of our new routines and schedules with the new baby. Its been a lot harder than I had imagined it would be bit we are so glad to have her home.
I was updating a couple of things like adding a link to her Facebook page on the sidebar… check it out if you get a chance and follow along with her updates. I also noticed that our page has been getting quite a bit of traffic even though I’ve not been posting as regular as I once did… thank you COVID?!
We do have a lot of great resources listed on our site and hopefully I’ll be able to add even more and maybe get some more of those Little House on the Prairie Adventures finished up… they seem to be a big hit right now! Feel free to search for those posts and download whatever you can use as it is all FREE!
Well, I’ve got to finish up dinner and some homeschool planning so I’m gonna jump off here but here’s a couple of super cute pics of our little miracle:
Hey y’all! I’m so so sorry that I kinda just dropped off the social media for a bit. The past few months have been very hard as this pregnancy took so much out of me but we are so happy to announce that the wait is over!
Just before midnight on July 8th Ms. Shyanne came screaming into this world via c-section. Although we were as ready as we thought we could be we weren’t quite expecting her to be here right then.
She weighed in at 8lbs and 1 oz and she was 19 1/2 inches long. They also determined that she was around 36 weeks when she delivered.
She is in the NICU due to some of her prenatal diagnosis. She has already breezed through one surgery and is making daily progress towards coming home although we know there will be more surgeries to come.
While the pregnancy seemed so chaotic from the beginning with all the negativity because of my age and then diagnosis after diagnosis for our little girl, (Just this last month we learned of her duodenal atresia which resulted in severe polyhydramnios and then we were ultimately admitted for preeclampsia/HELLP syndrome.), we feel so blessed to have this precious addition to our family.
I will try to finish up some of the posts related to her prenatal issues as well as a more detailed post about her birth and NICU stays but for now I’m just going to try to focus on life at home and recovering so that I can be ready to take care of our little one when she comes home.
We have been posting updates and tons of pictures on our personal FB pages if you’d like to follow us. I’ll also try to start posting on Instagram more regularly as well.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and most of all for your prayers and please keep us in your prayers as we know the next few months will be quite crazy around here.
