Warning Picture overload!!!!
Friday after my Dr. Appt Me and the Boys went to the Pumpkin Patch with Gammi. The last couple of years we have gone to the same Pumpkin Patch not far from our house but this year we decided to go to one on Gammis side of town. It was awesome and defiantly our new spot!Paxton just played and played......
They had the cutest little push peddle tractors...
There was a corn field maze, which was harder than it looked. It took a good 20 minutes for us to find our way out! Gotta love Poopoos con placement lol...
We went on a hay ride......
It was so much fun it stopped twice once to feed Donkeys....
and again to feed some cows with really really long tongues lol!It was so fun, I love this time of year:)
Happy Fall Y'all!!!
Friday I went to see my cardiologist for my 90 day Echocardiograhm. This was a big appt for me cause it was the first echo I have had since I was hospitalized three months ago. 50 % of women diagnosed with Postpartum Cardiomyopathy completely recover with full heart function in the first few years after diagnosis.
When I was in the hospital I had a EF Ejection fraction of 15%, The average person walks around with an EF between 50% and 65%. When I had my echo I was really hoping for a EF of at least 45% and judging by the amount of energy and lack of swelling I have had lately I was confident in that number. Well the results are in and I have a EF of 60% which means fully recovered!!! I am so happy I could cry, all my measurement were perfect, no swelling, no damage, absolutely perfect. The doctor said you could wright a text book on how perfect my heart looks, Woohoo!!!!
Whats this mean for my future? Well I will be on my medication life long to prevent a relapse but I can let up on the 2000mg sodium diet I have been restricted to. Also it still means no more babies which is still going to take awhile for me to completely except. Overall I am in complete normal health. Of coarse I have to be more careful than the average healthy person but still I am in good shape.
Thank you Jesus for your miraculous healing!

How do you sum up 4 months in one post?
My life has been nothing short of complicated since I last posted. Not to long after the last post I had an emergency appendectomy, it was a short stay in the hospital and back home with my sweet babies. To make a long storey short 5 days later I was back in the hospital suffering from heart failure. I have been diagnosed with Postpartum Cardiomyopathy, it is heart failure that is a result of pregnancy. I was very fortunate to have had my appendectomy because that surfaced the condition before it got to bad. I take medication and see a cardiologist regularly. I am not sure what this means for my future health but signs are good, we just have to take it one day at a time.
Little Ian is getting so big I cant believe how fast he is growing, it truly does go by faster with the second one. Even though he has only been here 6 months its hard to imagine a time without him. He is my precious gift! He rolled over for the first time when he turned 4 months old and now he acts like he wants to take off crawling CRAZY! I know everybody says there kid has the cutest smile but Ians smile could light up a room. Even when his mouth is not smiling his face still smiles, he has such a bright personality.
Poopoo is turning into a little man. He is constantly cracking me up and he is the best big brother any parents could ask for! He loves his baby brother and hasn't shown one ounce a jealousy, I was really worried before Ian was born that we would have major issues because he is so spoiled but he has proved us all wrong. When Ian was born it was like Paxton grew up over night. I am so proud of him!
I will continue to update my blog when I have the energy. I have missed the blogging world and feel warmed by all the comments of concern I have received in the last several months. Thanks to all my bloggy friends for caring:)
