Hi all,
Just a quick post to let y'all know we're still alive. Dax is doing great! He's working on trying to crawl, or at least that's what we're calling it:), and the PT told us today we needed to be focusing in on his abs to help him get there... Any of you who have been his big-baby-Buddha-belly know that we won't be getting a 6-pack anytime soon, but we're going to trade in his Baby Einsein's for baby Rambo's and get to work. I told you baby boot camp is underway!

We went to the ENT today and he does still have fluid, so they will go ahead and put tubes in his ears when they do his cardiac cath. They'll also do a complete, indepth hearing test while he's under to track his brain's reactions to sound to make sure he's hearing how he should (they can't test now due to the fluid...) The cath has officially been scheduled now for April 29... We're super happy about that, because he's doing so well the docs can push it back until we're out of RSV season and his little lungs can keep on growing and healing before they have to reintubate him for the procedure. Please keep on praying for him to stay healthy and strong!

As for me, I have a lovely stomach bug that is still full force after 4 full days. Funny thing I have found out, when you're in the middle of a high-risk pregnancy, you no longer have a stomach. You have breasts, and a pelvis, and there is nothing but a baby between the two. The second stomach cramps start, first the mom freaks out, then the docs check you out, but once they rule out contractions you're healed. I saw 2 docs in 2 days, with an ER visit smack dab in the middle, and thankfully, no contractions... However, when the doc is telling you to go home, you're fine, when you're crying on the table due to stomach cramps, you begin to wonder if they've looked at an anatomy textbook lately. At any rate, saw a doctor today who believes I do, in fact, have a stomach, and I do, in fact, have a stomach bug, and he and I are in complete agreement that we are glad it is not contractions, but we also agree it might be appropriate to treat the stomach bug, too. That being said, hopefully in a day or two I'll feel a little bit more like myself and can quit sitting around whining all day (which is primarily what I have been doing the past 4 days...)

So, off to "The Fetus Formerly Known As Sheniqua," who is now known as Tyler, by the way, he still looks great and my cervix still looks great, so all is well. Thanks for all the continues prayers and support!

Love you all,
