I'm pretty sure the best moment of my week was being told I was being discharged from the hospital... that moment was short lived. Doctors orders: bed rest for the next week. AKA... hell. Because of the steroid shots I was given my hips are incredibly sore and now love to randomly give out on me, you can imagine how fun trying to get up and down the stairs is, and staying still is just not my thing. 


Nothing sounds good to eat and anything I try to eat makes me sick, I'm in pain, IVs make you super sore, I'm lonely and bored but you know what... I am so incredibly THANKFUL. 


Thankful for friends and family who were there when the people I expected to be there weren't. Thankful for doctors and nurses to take care of me. Thankful for another day to reflect on this crazy, crazy journey that God thought I was capable of (for some reason). But I am mostly thankful for another day with my baby boy inside of me. As much as I want to hold him in my arms and see that he is healthy, I want him to grow to his full potential and be the healthiest happiest baby boy out there. 



The past 48 hours have been the most stressful, emotionally draining, and just sad ones for me but at the end of the day there are so many bigger things I need to focus on. Max has two grandmas and grandpas that love him to the moon and back, 4 aunts that checked in on Max and momma the whole time we were in the hospital, and countless friends and other family members keeping him {and mommy} in their prayers. 


Just like I have said in my thanksgiving post.... "Repeat daily... today I am thankful" and that is exactly what I am. So incredibly thankful. 



XOXO, Kate
