Going to see Santa
Wow I have been so busy lately that I just havent had time to do what I normally do. So I havent had time to get on here and tell the great news about Alyzea's cardiolgist appointment.
We saw Dr. Loker on the 4th of this month. Since they did a echo on her back in October, when we were in the hospital they didnt do one this time. He came in and told us that Alyzea's pressure gradient went from 40 to 33! It was so awesome to hear that, All they told us when we were in the hospital was that the echo came back good. Dr. Loker happened to be out of the office at the time so thats why we didnt see him when we were there. He also mentioned that when they echo she was running a fever and was sick, and that there is a chance that her gradient might actually be lower then what it was at the time of the echo. The other great news we got that day was we have been graduated to 6 month appointments! She has been doing so great I am so proud of her.

In other news, rob has been doing great after his surgry. He has some pain in his lower back but we think that might be because he cant sleep the way he normally does at night. My sisters baby has also been doing great. Ally and myself spent the night with the two of them at our parents house the other night. I helped my sister with the baby giving her some rest. I have been nerves that Ally might be mean to Lily but she did great with her. We got Lily's newborn, Ally's 1 year, and the girls Christmas pictures done when we were together. We took the girls to see Santa but Ally wanted nothing to do with the man.

Introducing Miss Lily!!!!

So my sister had her baby on Nov. 28th! It was the greatest thing being there with her when she was in labor. Dee did have some complications, she was in labor for over 24 hrs and she only dilated to 5 1/2, and that is with pitocin(sp) running for 4 hours. The baby's heart also was dropping to around the 86 so they decided that a c-section would be the best route to take. Dee's boyfriend is not someone who can handle blood so he ask if I could go in with Dee. So I got to go in with her and be the first person to see and met Lily. Being in the room when she was having a c- section is something I never thought I would do, and without a doubt I would do it again. It turns out that Dee's hips are to narrow and Lily wouldnt have been able to be born naturally.
Both mom and baby are doing great, my sister is acting like nothing happened to her and has been handling the pain great. All of baby's test have come back great and they made sure to check her heart which also has come back good. That right there takes alot off my shoulders. Knowing that my sister wouldnt have to go through what I went through.
The other thing that keeps playing in my mind is that fact that me and my sister both have a beautiful baby girl. It's so unreal thinking about her and me having children.
