I am pregnant! JUST KIDDING. I prefaced the following news to my friends with, "You will never believe this" and the three people I told ALL thought I was pregnant.
Not Pregnant, but we are making a major change--- MAJOR change.
Are you ready?
We're MOVING back to UTAH!!!
John boy got accepted into a program at the University of Utah.
My head is spinning. We found out the day before I brought Mia in the hospital. I am so proud of him! We are going to be selling all of our earthly possessions and moving in with my parents. Yes, my parents... that's how we roll. In a few months I will officially be 30 years old and moving back in with my parents. Saweeeet!
There are so many exciting things about this, and so many sad things. I am already missing my life here and know it will be a huge adjustment for our entire family.
Jensen's first reaction was: "What about my rockets?" (we painted rockets on his walls)
Then he said... "Mom, what about all of your friends?" (he is the sweetest kid)
Ellie said: "Yay, now I get to live by Abby" This is exciting, but I don't think she realizes all of the cousins she will be moving away from. She also thought we were moving that day and told all of her friends at school we were moving to "Seattle" and she wouldn't be back. When I explained that it won't be for awhile, she started to cry and was extremely worried that her friends wouldn't like her because they thought she lied. poor girl. Totally mis-understood the time line and already said her farewells. Hopefully school went OK, I wasn't there to find out how the surprise I'm not moving yet went over.
Mia doesn't understand what that news entails, but we will have to transfer her care, and that is more than stressing me out. I have heard that the transplant team in Utah is great, and I'm sure they are. So much to do! I just wish we weren't facing rejection during this transition.
Sam, well, he slept through the news- cause he is always sleeping. John told me that Sam slept from 4 pm- to 8:30 am last night. That is a lot of sleep! He has done this a few times, but it is too long in my book. I miss his little face terribly! He is a momma's boy and it is breaking me up not snuggling him each day. I started crying watching a trailer for Dumbo- that show is NOT intended for mommies who are separated from their babies.
John is excited- as we were talking about everything we are planning to take with us, he only had one thing on his list. The big screen. That was first on my list to sell- he he. I guess if he only has one...
Yep, there you have it- Utah, here we come.
In "other" news. Mia has had a good day. She had her second round of steroids today and slept through much of her IVIG treatment in the night (which is miraculous because they take vitals every 15 minutes). The doctors did say that it is a possibility that after her last IVIG treatment we could just hit the road. Crossing my fingers for this.
Back to Moving... Can you believe this?? AAAhhhhhhh!
