Eating Camp Weekend Update

We had nice weekend with Kory here and were sad for him to leave this evening. He helped me get the room all regrouped and klp ready for bed and then hit the road. Kory stayed the night here at the hopsital with Kanyon Friday night and I went to Paul and Katie's house. It was a marvelous night of sleep for me and I think pretty much the opposite for Kory. klp was coughing some and I think that kept them both up. He's pretty much over that now and last night he slept cough free. Saturday we had and extra bit of fun when Kanyon's buddy from church Parker and his parents Steven and Amanda (and even his aunt that we didn't even know) came by to visit us. The brought Kanyon a tow truck that he is LOVING!! We are blessed with great friends who even though its only been a week will take the time to come visit us!
Thanks for coming by! We also got to see Cliff and Maggie this evening and LOVED that. She came all the way from California to see kanyon.....well, maybe not JUST to see Kanyon, but we loved seeing them.
Here is klp with Parker just before Parker left to go to his first Ranger game!


klp got to show KLP how cool his window was. KLP got to share some new songs on the ipod with klp!

As for therapy and such, they still stayed on the feeding schedule over the weekend, but we had no PT or OT. We will crank that back up tomorrow.
In other news, we did have a little bit of drama this weekend. I started having some back pain Saturday afternoon and was a little worried about it. When I was pregnant with the twins, I had back pain the night before I ended up in the hospital and that could've been the beginnings of labor, so I was a little nervous. We decided I should go get checked out, so we called in the troops. PAUL AND KATIE!! Paul came and stayed here with Kory so that if Kory needed to leave he could. It was getting close to Kanyon's bed time and I just wanted Kory there with him. Katie went with me to the hospital. We are literally one block away so it was a quick trip. If something was wrong, Kory was close and could get there fast. They monitored contractions and I didn't have any and was ready to go home and then a few started showing up on the computer (I felt nothing) so they gave me a shot of some medication to relax my uterus. I never had any more contractions and they even think the ones that I did have could've been irritation from other things they were doing to me. They did an FFN test (predicts if labor will start within 2 weeks) and it was negative, so that is good. I feel like I don't trust that, but they say its 99.9% accurate. They checked my cervix and it was good, so that was all good. They said I was having some tightening which was irritability probably from over doing it/not enough water, etc. By the time I left I felt pretty good about everything being OK. I just question myself and hope I will be able to know if something is wrong if something does go wrong. After all of that, Katie and I got to her house at 3am!! She was the best to be there with me for so long. I was glad I went and feel good that everything got checked out and OF COURSE SO thankful that I didn't have a baby last night. I'm nervous of course and probably will be but am praying for peace through the next few weeks. As far as bed rest, that isn't necessary yet. They said I can do "normal" activity just to put my feet up and take it easy when I can. They felt like it was OK for me to stay here at Eating camp especially if I had someone here to help me. So, my mom is going to come and spend most of the week and we'll just take it from there. I have an appointment with the high risk Dr. Tues. morning (or earlier if he wants to see me sooner) so I will be anxious to talk with him. In a lot of ways, being here may be better than being at home because there are times of the day that Kanyon isn't with me and I can just lay down and put my feet up. So, I feel good with my mom coming to help play with him and entertain him when he's not in therapy and I can make SURE I'm not over doing it. So, there we go. I am praying for peace of mind as well as the wisdom to know my body and know when/if I do need to go see a Dr. All things point to everything being fine, so I have to go with that and do everything I can to be healthy for this baby. Your prayers mean the world to us.
We're geared up and ready for Week 2!
