Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Cardio Check, A Sitter??, And Prego Pics...

Dean's stress test results came back ok. His heart is doing great (he has 2 stents), but his bilirubin was a little elevated. First thing out of doc's mouth "No More Alcohol." WHAT? That's going to be a problem was his response. Apparently the cholesterol medicine he is on causes enzyme issues in the liver and alcohol only adds fuel to the fire. After Dr. Goo.gle today, he now thinks his aspirin also contributes to the bilirubin increase. The cardiologist is going to send the resports to his primary doctor to see if she wants to pursue further enzyme testing to see if something else is going on. He said sometimes this can be genetic, but it could just be from the meds and drinking...

So I think I said the other day when sitter option #1 fell through, that Dean posted an ad on our neighborhood website. We got a hit yesterday. The lady is a stay-at-home-mom with a 4 y/o and a 1.5 y/o looking for some extra moola. Our price was good for her so we are supposed to go meet her on Monday - WHOOP WHOOP! Let's pray this one doesn't bail over the weekend like the other.

Here are some recent pics of Peanut and Peanut Stuff...

This is a terrible pic (Thanks Dean for not waiting for all of us to look and smile) but it shows how excited Grammy and Grampy are about their upcoming grandbaby. Peanut was moving quite a bit last week when we stopped by for a visit. But of course, when they came to feel, he got a little stage fright! They did finally feel it though.


Grandma (via Dad) got us our Baby.Bjorn for Peanut. It was the last major thing we needed. Dad told me that if Grandpa was alive and Grandma was able, they would want to get us something for their great-grandbaby. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa! We love you! Peanut loves you! And the fact that she's sitting up in her chair and smiling just makes me so happy!




The 37 week belly...even with my face this time!


And the "Our Little Monkey" onesie I finally ordered from ebay. It's yellow (I didn't use a flash because the yellow would show as too yellow) We think it's perfect for Peanut's coming home outfit! Nice and fresh and spring time - and MONKEY!



4 nice things to say...:

Cholesterol drugs and alcohol do put a lot of stress on the liver, glad the docs are keeping a close eye.
You look absolutely beautiful and I'm so glad your Grandma is doing better. Super cute Monkey outfit!!
