Friday Easton went to the doctors and his heart function has not changed. His heart still isnt functioning properly. But the doctors did come up with a plan for right now. They sent him home with a heart monitor. We should get the results from the test on Tuesday. So I will let you know ASAP. Then we will go from there. But the doctor also said they are not looking at a tranplant as of right now. They want to medicate him with different things before they go down that route. But I was kind of confused because the doc said if his heart function hasnt changed we would be starting the transplant plan. But after talking to other doctors (which he stated he was the only doc that has dealt with his issue) that they want to make a new plan. This really confused me and I want to make sure this is the right thing to do. So we actually have a second opinion appt on Jan 6th two hours away. I dont want to take a chance, I want to make sure get as much knowledge as possible before making any decisions.
This weekend we lived dangerously. We went to the mall. The kids were getting stir crazy so we ventured out. We get so many looks and stares. Which I would to if I saw my cute babies. But I hate some of the statements we get. I am glad thats not me, I would jump off a bridge, is this natural (does it matter they are already here), are they all yours (no I just adopted 5 babies at the same time lol), you have 5 (no I have 8 kids), oh your one of those moms that want that many kids (heck ya I am, babies are blessings Why not?) Why is it crazy to have a big family now days, family is the most important thing to me! I know people dont mean anything by these comments but after hearing them 50 times a day, it starts to make me think.
We had to have a family meeting this weekend. We wanted the big kids to know that just because people come and make a big deal about the babies they are just as important. We love them just as much. Ty said I know mom it just odd for that many babies. So I really do hope they understand. And as the babies get older I think it will die down some.
I really like meeting people that I have met thru the blog! But people that dont know our story ask alot of questions that I dont have the time to answer. And everyone wants to talk and ask the same questions. I am sorry I am not being rude but sometimes I have to try not to make eye contact and just move on. The reasoning is if I stop to talk to people I would not be able to spend time with my family especially the older kids. So if you see me out, please dont get the impression that I am walking around with the nose in the air. I am sorry!
I really miss church. We keep on thinking we will go this week. Last weekend we even made plans to go but then we had kids that were sick. With only getting 2 hours of sleep it is hard to get everyone ready and Sundays is the only time we get to switch between my husband and I to sleep in the morning. Its usually the day we can catch up and actually sleep 4 hours. When we go to church our weeks just feel more fulfilled. ATTENTION BABIES you need to sleep thru the night so we can go to church. I hope they are listening!
Yesterday my husband was driving me nuts. He didnt do anything but I felt like he was just jumping all over my nerves! LOL SO if anyone knows of someone that is single and looking for a woman with a few extra pounds with quite of few stretch marks , 8 kids, cant work have too many kids, have money to afford me and all the kids, and can listen to me rant, please let me know. (Just kidding) I love him dearly and I am glad he loves me to put up with me! I dont tell him enough how much I love him!
