I promise that I have not fallen off of the face of the earth... I have been so ridiculously busy that I hardly have time to think straight! Jake is amazing and wonderful - everyday I take one look at him and just can't believe how fantastic he is! Anyways - biggest milestone to date - my little man is crawling!! You have to keep an eye on him because he is also now pulling himself up on EVERYTHING! (not to mention falling backward and banging his head, but he's got to start somewhere) I also started my REAL schedule at Apple, so I am home with him during the day and then work 3-midnight. It is great to have so much time with him again, but hard at the same time because I don't get as much time with Jess. However, all in all I absolutely love it! I LOVE LOVE LOVE working at Apple - the people are all so nice - it is such a wonderful and supportive environment. I feel like I am a major part of Jake's life again - I was missing him so much when I was working days.
On to the less the wonderful things that are going on... well Jake gave us quite a scare by running a really high fever one night a few weeks ago. After having a ton of tests done they determined that he has an issue with reflux of urine in his bladder which caused him to have a bladder infection. We are going to see the Urologist on Tuesday so we should have a plan of action and more details then.
The other major thing is that my mom is now in a nursing home. She just wasn't healthy enough for my dad to be able to take care of her after all the recent hospital stays. I think there is very good chance that she will be able to get strong enough to come home, but a big part of that is up to her. I am seriously worried because she seems to have given up to me - I worry that she thinks this is it for her, which kills me. If you know me at all you know that a nursing home is that LAST place I would ever want my mom to be, but sometimes we can't get what we want. So I'm praying that she will believe us when we tell her that she can go home and that she will find the will to fight for her life. I keep thinking that if she sees Jake enough that she will do it for him, but I have figured out that she has to decide to do it for herself. My heart just breaks for her and for my Dad - he is really acting tough, but I know it has been really hard on him too.
Well I intended this to be a short, quick update and instead I have just unloaded via blog. On that note I am off to bed. I know I say this every post, but I would like to keep this up - so I'm renewing my intention to post regularly!
See you soon blog world.
