|Nate and I celebrated our first anniversary on Sunday. It's amazing how time flies. We have been together for quite sometime now, but have gone through somethings other couples never have to face. As Nate has told me before, if we can get through this (meaning Kaden's complications at birth plus his long stay at CMH) we will get through anything. Well, we took out the year old frozen wedding cake and let it thaw. Believe it or not...it was still really good. We didn't do the whole smash the cake in the face at the wedding (good boy Nate) however, I took it upon myself to go ahead and do it Sunday. Unfortunately, in return I got a nose filled with cake. Oh well, it was fun. On Friday, we went out to dinner and a movie. It might not sound like much, but we do not get a chance to hang out with just the two of us very often. We had a blast!!! Kaden got to stay at grandma's and grandpa's house. I am sure he had fun, he had a sleepover with his cousin Miles. |
Kaden is not going to school at all this week. Monday was a holiday and I guess the school decided to put some new flooring in and work on the sewer or something, so come Tuesday the school was not ready to open. Today I received a call from Kaden's teacher saying that the nurse felt as though Kaden shouldn't come to school until next week because of all the dust and things in the school right now. I agree and I am so glad that she thought of something so small. He will miss it, but when he goes back next week he will be the "Star of the week."
I talked to Kaden's doctor at CMH about Ava. She said that things didn't sound good. She is going to try and make an appt for us with the genetic doctors there since they know some about Kaden's past and have his records to go by. I am very anxious to find out more. It is so nerve racking. Lately Nate and I have been discussing what we will do if it is said that we can't have anymore babies. Adoption comes up a lot. We talk about all of the possibilites though and how we think we might feel about each of them. It is so weird how different your life can turn out than what you planned. Growing up all I imagined for myself was to get married, have two or three children and live care free. You never think of hospital stays, feeding tubes, and home nursing. I am so thankful for Kaden and all that he has taught me. There is a saying that I love and it goes...."While you try to teach your children all about life, your children teach you what life is all about." (author unknown) He has given me an opportunity to experience unconditional love and to live a life that I would never think I could handle. He has shown me my strength and given me even more. He is an absolute blessing and (as said before) I am truly thankful God put His trust into Nate and I and let us take care of one of His miracles. I absolutely adore Kaden and could not imagine my life anymore blessed....and then comes Ava!!!!
