Baby News...

A lot of people had been asking for more baby info, so here's what I have:
- official due date: Sept 1
- will we find out the sex? .... YES, we are not that patient!
- will we tell the name before birth? .... girl-YES ... boy-MAYBE
- Bella will be 26 months when Baby C is born, so that should be interesting, exciting and challenging!
- Mama is doing okay right now... still has morning sickness but praying everyday for it to end SOON!
... that's about it for now...

The Great Flood of '09

As of today, we have all been living with my wonderful, gracious, patient parents for a week and one day.... because a pipe burst/leaked into one whole side of our house. We had to rip up the carpet in the living room, Bella's room and Baby Cs room. And because of the exposed carpet spikes, Bella can not live in the house until new carpet is put down. But it could have been worse... so we are very thankful for that.... and insurance! We will hopefully be back in the house sometime next week, but until then Bella is enjoying the extra attention!

Goodbye Gallbladder

Thank you to everyone for the thoughtful phone calls, messages, gifts and letters! We are all at home now and Marc is recovering quickly. Marc started getting major stomach pains on Monday and thought they were from something he ate. The pains continued all through the night and into the next day. He decided to go to the doctor on Tuesday, which means he was in A LOT of pain because otherwise he rarely will ever go to the doctor! I think it is a man thing! So after a few tests, our doctor sent him directly to a surgeon who then sent us directly to the ER.... Marc had a golf ball size stone in his gallbladder!!!! It was blocking the tube where bile flows through and was causing him all the pain, along with inflaming the gallbladder. The surgery was scheduled for the next morning and went well. Thankfully the surgeon was able to do the surgery laparoscopically instead of cut him from side to side, but they still had to put 4 holes in his stomach which left him very sore. But all is well now and Marc even made it back to work today. Thanks again for all the well wishes and love.

Goodbye gallbladder..... and stone!
