Big Update!

Ok so it has been WAY too long since I have been here! But life has been crazy so this might be long. Lets go back... way back to July 8th.

Daxton Zane Rapp

He was 7 lbs 2 oz and 18 and 3/4 inches long. He has tons of hair! He had to be on the bili lights for 4 days in the hospital and then another 4 days after he got home. It wasn't the funnest thing on the planet but at least he got better!

Shortly after, my incision opened up and we are still packing that two times a day.

A week after my incision opened up, I woke up in the middle of the night with a very high fever and chills. My stomach also hurt REALLY BAD. I couldn't even get up out of bed by myself. I went to the ER and the wanted to admit me but I resisted. Two days later I was there anyway. I spent 3 more days in the hospital but at least they let Daxton stay with me. After I was released, I felt a lot better and hope to never feel that bad again.

Daxton is growing like crazy. He also has reflux so he is grumpy and cries a lot. He also wants to be held all day long. Luckily his mommy likes to hold him but it is doing a number on my back. A friend of mine let me borrow a sling and I think that will help once I really figure out how to use it. At least I was able to make dinner with both hands last night.

Anyway, he is now 7 wks old and I am still on antibiotics and my incision is still not totally healed but I think we are close! So, cross your fingers that nothing else comes up!

So, don't you just think he is a cutie???

Yay!!! I have been checking in everyday to see if you have any updates!
I am happy to hear you are doing better. And I hope your incision heals real soon ( I know how you feel mine was like that for a long time, but they had to go in fix it and then close me up almost four months later)
Dax is such a cutie! Can't wait to see more pictures!
Miss you!!

Heather.. your baby is SO cute! Sounds like you have been through so much. We are taking the year off of dance and doing tumbling at Academy West. What about you guys? I hope I don't regret it, but we will be back next year. Give me the details on the dance happenings and stick it out with the baby, you know it gets better!

Yes, we think he's a cutie too and hope the reflux gets better soon so you can have both hands free again!
