Well, I finally feel like it is about time to share a bit of news with all of my wonderful followers. That picture up there is our little girl that we will hopefully be welcoming into our family in July. My lack of blog posts and stamping for the past few months are totally her fault as she thinks we need lots of naps and rest (and strawberries and cake too!). :) Thankfully the nausea has finally let up a bit now that I hit the second trimester. We still have a long road ahead, but for now we know she has a normal set of chromosomes and will not be affected with SMA. I can't even tell you how much I cried the day our genetic counselor called with that news. The holidays were spent waiting on test results and I was so glad that they came much quicker than we hoped. I feel like we are over one big hurdle for now and am crossing my fingers that we can just be a normal pregnant couple for the rest of the journey.
Before I sign off, I want to thank those of you who took time to mail off cards to MJ. I know they will be so appreciated; I can't even begin to imagine how trying it must be to spend months at a time in the hospital! Also, I've received some really nice emails lately from a few of you and I will try to get some replies out soon. I'm so behind with everything these days!
I wish everyone a wonderful week.
