Consuming my mind...

So you all know yesterday was kinda a big deal for me...finally a nice car..>FINALLY! And I know, some of you are thinking, shut up, we never had a nice car...but did you at least have one (imagine being 30, 3 kids) that at least doesn't break down every trip you go on? EVERY trip, or maybe you at least own a house. Oh, yea, I'm officially moving into our suburban, but will still get my mail at po box 502, feel free to visit, and the kids will still be in the house...hahaha! ANyway, it was a big day, that I'll post more about later with a sweet pic, but it was an even HUGER day for my best friend Jana.
This poor girl has just gone through the pregnancy from HELL! She was bleeding and cramping really bad for weeks and went in to get checked and they told her she was pregnant. Keep inmind, they weren't trying, her baby at the time wasn't even one yet, but what can you do. And the farther the pregnancy went, the more complications came. She was bleeding a ton throughout the whole thing. At first she had placenta previa, which of coarse she researched (she's one of my awesome friends that researches things and doesn't do what her doctors say, JUST because her doctors say to) and in this case, she probably shouldn't have done SO much research because she stressed about it. But luckily that healed itself, just in time for a huge blood clot right by her uterus, which made her bleed like crazy the whole time...and a lot of you know what it's like to even bleed just a tad during your pregnancy, you freak! Well, she would bleed to the point of passing out. In and out of the hospital, til one night, Craig couldn't get her to come to, and they had to air evac her to St. Joes where she spent a good week doing NOTHING...keep in mind, she's got a one year old (and a 2 year old and a 5 year old and a 7 year old and an 8 year old) that her husband, and sister watched for her. But it was horrible for her because she is the most serving person in the world...and I'm not just saying that, honestly she spends 100% of her time serving, so this accepting service and being stuck in bed has killed her! Anyway, her dad got them an apartment down there because they told her she has to stay close to St. Joes throughout the whole pregnancy. She finally got out of the hospital, then a few days later, back in, in and out, in and out until yesterday when I got a text "baby came at eleven this morning". I freaked! FREAKED! She's only about 28 weeks along!!!! they were hoping she could make it at least another 5 or so. And my stupid phone died, but I finally got to talk to her last night, and she's doing great, and her risks of bleeding to death are gone, so LOTS of worry for everyone is gone. And surprisingly baby K is doing pretty well considering. He was 2lbs...um, eleven ounces? 2lbs something. Jase and I argued about it last night. But she said his legs are like tiny little hotdogs. He's adorable. And looks like it'll be a long road to recovery, but he is on the road which is GREAT news after all the scares this pregnancy has brought! Congratulations Jana! WE're all (my whole entire family, sisters and all) are sooo glad everything is ok! And correct any of this that is wrong. And I'm really sad you're moving down there again!!!!
Oh, and that picture is from about 5 years ago, I'm chubby chubby, and she's been skinny since the day she had her first kid...she's one of those stinking girls that gets cuter and skinnier everytime she has a kid!

Where do babies that young go up there? Flagstaff? We just had some friends that had a baby at 25 weeks! One pound 12 ounces, 12 inches long. She was in the NICU three good months but is home and doing well now.

I am glad that she is out of danger, hope her little K grows healthy and strong and can come home soon. My mom's missionalry friends in Utah had there baby at 22 weeks. He just celebrated his 100 day mark in the NICU, but is up to more than 5 pounds so hopefully since their baby was already 28 weeks they will have a much shorter stay. Tell her congrats for me. I am also so happy that you have your new car! Enjoy all the space! Your Christmas card is super cute too.
