Update pic heavy

Sorry I have been gone so long. A lot going on here and just starting to settle down a bit..kind of.

Ema is doing great. She is out of her harness full time and has a check up tomorrow to see how her hips and knee are progressing. She is also doing well with me cutting out dairy and soy and gained 11 oz in 9 days weighing in at 9# 15 oz Friday at her 2 MONTH appointment! She still has some fussy times but so much better.

As for me it has been crazy, I have been having problems with chest pain and difficulty breathing light headed etc. I finally went in and was suspected to have a pulmonary embolism bit thank goodness they were wrong. I started collapsing a few days later with ema in my arms. Scariest feeling ever, couldn't feel my arms or legs. I since have started physical therapy for post pardem post bed rest weakness. That with a combination of weight loss is suspect for everything and we are continuing to look into it. Blood tests came back positive for rheumatoid arthritis so now I am waiting to get in with a specialist. We will figure it out soon I am told. Crazy.

Emalyn was baptized Sunday and it was a success for my first party and great time was had by all.

Here is a bonus pic too! She loves to smile and I never catch it in time.

O And my necklace came today, inspired by Sandra.

Sorry if the pics are huge. Now to try and catch up on here in the next few days... Smile

Aweeee! I love your necklace! Is that from the woman who made my mom's Nana necklace? It looks the same! I just got a new birth stone for my mom's necklace. Smile

As you know, I'm so sorry about all your health issues. It really sucks after all you've been through that you're having MORE problems. Sad I feel so sad for you.

I love the photo of you and Em. You look gorgeous!

[HR][/HR]It's such a bummer when the complications don't end with the pregnancy. I've had some minor issues (arm is swollen and infected from a bad IV during labor and my blood pressure is still high) but these things are fairly minor. I am so sorry you are dealing with so much. Sad On the upside, Ema is soooooo cute!
