Logan eye

This is lo bug after his surgery.

He had eye surgery on tuesday in abq. They went in to move his eye muscle and found he only has four!! No wonder the other surgery didn't work. The eye muscles kinda of lean or use the other muscles to balance each other out. When Logan had surgery before they moved his lower eye muscles to push against the top ones. Well he doesnt have one of the top muscles so thats why his eye still looked off.
But now his eyes are straight and following each other. We have a follow up this week in abq to see if he will need more surgeries but we are hoping not. Until they fix his brow.

Mom notes: they gave him anti anxiety meds to go away from me plus sedation. He was terribly tired and cried for 3 whole hours after we got home.

So I haven't blogged about it yet but I'm el prego again!!!

This baby is definitely a surprise. It took us years and years to get pregnant with both Connor and Logan. And so I stopped taking my birth control to get an IUD in. I had a doctor's appt Tuesday to talk about different forms of IUD's. I took a pregnancy test the Friday before and it was POSITIVE!!

We are excited about this munchkin! We weren't planning on having another one because my pregnancies are so hard. But Heavenly Father had other ideas. I've always wanted 5 kids. But I was okay with 2 because I had such great boys and worked hard to get them here. Now we will have 3!!!!

So this pregnancy has been drama like my other ones. The end of April I couldn't keep anything down, including water, for 3 days so I went to the ER to get some fluids. It lasted a day and I went back on Saturday night. They drew my blood and my platelets were 33K. DRAMA! The other drama was I was 14 weeks pregnant. So when they called the OB doc, he said, "I don't do low platelets. Send her to ABQ." When they called the blood doc, he said, "I don't do pregnancy, send her to ABQ."  So I was Med-A-Vac'd out of Alamogordo, up to ABQ. There I got an infusion of IGG. Chris drove up with the boys and I ended up staying 2 days in the hospital.

Now I have doctor's here in Alamogordo that will take my care and have had another infusion May 26th. I had to spend all day on the phone with Tricare to get my infusion improved but it's worth the blessings. They drew my blood before the infusion and my platelets were below 12K. The lab machine doesn't read below 12K so that's all we know. That's a scary low.

So I have to get my blood drawn every week. Infusions, probably, every 3 weeks until this baby is done cooking. I'm hoping to be able to grow this baby until his term.... 36 weeks. Some of the docs have other ideas but I'm pretty sure mommy rules in these cases.

Okay so I plan on blogging a lot more so come back for updates!
