Honestly...I really didn't know that it had been yet another week...it's crazy. I guess it is a good thing that times seems to be flying by lately...as much as I love pregnancy...LOVE feeling the little guy kick inside me...there are some things I really could do without!

And yet another week has flown by...I actually feel like the "days left" on my baby ticker are going pretty fast right now. It's not that there hasn't been anything going on...just quite the opposite.
Last weekend...I went to New Castle to scrapbook with a friend while her husband and daughter came to the Fort to spend the night with Seth and daddy. It was fun...I got lots done...not as much as I wanted to...or need to...but it was fun to just scrap and catch up with LeeAnne...who just happens to be due within days of me! The guys (& Lynzi) had a great time here...enjoying the beautiful weather outside before the rains came this week.
This week has been packed full of Kate's Kart stuff...we are adding 3 new hospitals within the next month or so. Anyone out there in blogworld want to paint a Kart...we need one painted soon so we can get it to Dupont. Plus, Parkview Huntington & Ball Memorial. Plus...Canterbury is having a huge book fair/book drive this week so I was out there a bunch making wish lists and doing presentations for the students. Plus, Seth's preschool is doing a big bookdrive/fundraiser and I met with a Scholastic Book Rep who is getting us great deals on books now. Who would have ever thought?
I did have an OB appointment on Monday. Not much new...the little guy had the hiccups...that was kinda cute to see on the ultrasound. I did have my glucose test...UGHGHGHGH..then they couldn't find a vein to take my blood...had to call in reinforcements...and almost ran out of time! I am praying since I havent heard anything I passed...or it's a 3 hour test with 4 pokes!
The pool opened (well, not for swimming) this past weekend...in attempts to get it ready for some repairs...so Andy has been heading over there every night to check it...plus, it's time for his academic competition he's been preparing his team for all year.
We're just busy busy busy! check out the next post to see what is keeping Seth busy these past few days!
My mom is doing well...she went back to work this week a couple hours a day! She meets with the oncologist next week to see what is the next step...although one lymph node did have cancer in it...it was the only one of 13 they tested. Let's hope and pray for the best! She is one strong trooper!

Ever have one of those songs you just can't get out of your head? The choir at our church sang this song on Easter Sunday...and I have been singing it all day...and night..and day! I think it has to do with "mmmm" part! It's such a great stoy of our Lord and Savior in 4 minutes.
I would love to post our church choir singing it...but since I dont' have that...I found it on Youtube! Never heard of this group before...but the song is just so catchy! It won't let me embed it...so you'll have to go the link!

I have just a few more cute pics from our 2nd trip to see baby Nia last Wednesday. Seth all of a sudden got really nervous and was scared to hold baby Nia...I'm sure that will end once it's his own sibling...so for now...sitting next to Lucas is all I could get!

Found some cute pics of Seth decorating eggs...just had to share. I'm serious...this kid could decorate 50 dozen eggs if I let him. And the cutest part...each one is SO exciting when he would pull it out of the dye. Oh how I treasure these special memories.

So...with all of Doug's family, plus Nana and Oompa and Grandma and her friend, Ted...plus us 3...we had a very full dining room! Since both babies will be out of car seats...I think next year we'll be eating in the garage! Really...you can never have too much family.
Tonight..tucking Seth in bed...he had nothing but wonderful things to say about the whole day! It was....a very blessed day!

All are doing well...except for the two grandma's who are either stuck in a neighboring hospital or on the road home from South Carolina. We're heading back this afternoon for Seth to meet his new cousin....he's pretty excited not to be the little one anymore! I'll be sure to post pics of the cousins!

My mom is out of surgery...overall things went well. They did find a spot of cancer in the 1st lymph node and so then took out a group of about 13. They will need to further test those nodes to determine how far into the system any cancer has progressed. We're praying that it is only in that 1st one. We won't know about the long term treatment plan (chemo) until probably early next week.
We just got the call that we can go see her in about 20 minutes. Will update later...thanks for your prayers and thoughts.
Dad and I just ate a TERRIBLE lunch at the cafeteria...UGHGHGH! So glad I don't have to eat that food everyday!

I'm at the hospital right now...mom went back for her surgery at 10...we expect a couple hour wait before we hear from the doctor. Everything went fine this morning with the pre-surgery stuff...and we are very hopeful for a very good outcome today.

I am sad to post tonight the latest news we have received...my mother has been once again diagnosed with breast cancer. Yes...she battled, fought hard and won her battle 14 years ago...but now has to fight the fight again.
She will be having surgery next Tuesday...and at this point, we don't know about chemo or radiation therapy yet. She has been super good about getting tested...so we know it's less than 6 months old...and all tests show no signs of it being in thy lymph nodes. These are all great signs. ...but, still...UGHHGH
But...please...keep her (Judy/Nana) in your prayers through the weekend and into next week. It's a nasty thing...and she doesn't deserve this...she has 2 little grandbabies on the way...and I need her WAY TOO MUCH! But...I don't know many women as strong as my mom...who has such a great fighting spirit. 2009 will still be our year...just with a little roadblock!
