Wow, again time has just flown and I have been so bad about blogging, We have been pretty busy here though

If you have not figured it out, Alexandrea is going to be a big sister. I am now 15 weeks, hopefully here in a few weeks we will get to know what we are having. We are truly excited about this new little one even though it wa a complete suprise to us! We are also nervous and scared since Alexandrea ended up coming 7 weeks early but we also have our faith that we can carry full term and have a healthy little one. We do not care what we have , we just want a healthy baby. So far the pregnancy has gone fairly smoothly other than daily all day sickness. Our newest little one is due in Feb 2011.

On friday Aug 6, 2010, Alexandrea had surgery to close the asd (atrail septal deftct) The hole ended up larger than they though it was. In her echos before surgery, they guessed it was around 7-8 mm, once they got in there, they discovered it to be at 11 mm and place a 12 mm stent (titanium mesh plug). They decided to go ahead and close it using tee cath procedure as she just is not growing like they hope she would. It seems even on or off a feeding tube at high calories she just does not gain. So with the surgery being done we are hoping for better weight gain. She is now weighing in at around 16lbs 4 oz.

Her feet are def growing though, she has gone from a size 2 to a size 4 in a matter of about 2 months. She is walking everywhere and there is not stoping her now, After her surgery, she has had so much more energy, it is truly amazing, so we have already had some good come out of her surgery.
