Much has happened since you have heard from me last. I last shared the news of my pregnancy and since then, much has transpired. Our son arrived in November, but not without drama. He spent about 2 weeks in the NICU and gave my husband and I the scare of our lives when he began to have seizures on the day we expected to take him home from the hospital. I had my share of complications as well. I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia during my third trimester, which resulted in early bedrest, and an early delivery. After my son's birth, I developed the HELP syndrome as a complication of the pre-eclampsia. I then ended up with a kidney infection that went septic causing me to lose much of my blood and almost killed me. The good news is that my son and I are doing great now and we don't seem to have any lasting effects from all the trauma.
I keep wavering back and forth about whether I should start blogging again. As much as I want to, I fear becoming consumed with picture taking, writing, and responding to comments. So I have decided that I will blog again, but at a very slow pace. A pace that will respond to my family's needs. I will no longer take any custom requests, since I just do not have any time for that at all (I am lucky to get a shower most days). I also will most likely post just once or twice a month. I will try my best to respond to your comments and questions, but will only be able to do that as my schedule allows.
So, I guess I am just asking for your patience as I begin to figure things out again. I hope you will choose to follow along!
