Now for the good news….

….but first I would just like to say thank you….

Thank you for all the messages, comments, support, prayers, thoughts, positive energy and all around LOVE. We feel it coming heavy our way and I can not thank everyone enough :) I would also like to thank Lucas….for putting up with my super hormonal self lately, all that bad news mixed with being pregnant is not the greatest combination. He has been nothing but supportive and a rock for this family and I can never tell him enough…I love you babe.

I was not looking forward to Wednesday….I stressed about it all week. I would get excited for the other appointments but after hearing disappointing news week after week, you start to wonder what the next weeks bad news will be (not the type of attitude i’d like to adopt for this particular situation) I had prepared myself as best I could for bad news but was hopefully something good would come out of this weeks visit.

We had a super early 7:45am appointment in Calgary so we were on the road by 6am (not cool.) BUT at least we didn’t have to wait around in anticipation all day. Each visit we see different tech in a different room and my inner 15 year superstitious self kicks in thinking, “hey, we haven’t been in the room, maybe that means good news?” This tech was awesome, super funny and answered all our questions. Within the first 5 minutes she asked us “so last time they were concerned about a pleural effusion around the lungs?” I knew right then we were about to hear some good news….”well I don’t see anything like the scans from last week, just a tiny tiny pooling at the bottom left corner of the lungs”

I cried…..

It literally felt like the world was just lifted from my shoulders…Lucas was smiling so huge…we finally got good news!

No Toronto…No Amniocentesis….NO needles in my belly disrupting my little babe…

…and best of all there was no mention or mortality or palliative care. The doctor said he has no idea what cause the pleural effusion but is more than happy that it is resolving itself….and so are we….You could not smack the smile off my face that day, it was the best I had felt in months. Heart surgery is still imminent and will take place after the baby is a few days old but they let us know that they are not positive they are going to make it into a single pump heart….but only time and growth will tell…I am still over the moon that we don’t have any other issues to deal with!

I told Lucas the day before that if we got good news, we were going to Jelly Modern Doughnuts to celebrate (normally I would be so upset all I wanted to do was go home). So we did and it was delicious!

We didn’t have anything to compare the size of the baby to this week so we just took some photos of Jensen and I playing cars…next week we will get back on track!

I feel completely lame for crying happy tears over this post - since we are complete strangers and all. But I could not be happier for you if you were my sister or friend. I hope your little guy's heart continues to grow and your doctors appointments continue to yield positive news!

Families that adventure together, stay together. This family is no exception to that rule, each one of them was up for anything. Being a photographer's kids, Addison and Gracie did amazing (even so much as mentioning photos to my kids will send them running lol)...It was my longest session  in the mountain so far but even after then burned out, they still shot me smiles. This location was so beautiful, so many different spots in such a short radius of space...but can we just talk about the full on Sound of Music moment by the big tree?! I had to actually just stop and watch them dancing around while their dad played guitar, such a sweet mo ...

I try not to make resolutions or focus too much on what "needs to be fixed" this time of year...Instead I try to think of something that I would love to look back on; a summary of sorts. I'm no good with words, so journalling never works. I would always give myself a really hard time about not documenting my feelings through certain life events. To the point where I would get incredibly stressed out thinking I would not be leaving something tangible for my boys to read in the future. But it occurred to me about a month ago while in Nashville with some amazing colleagues, that I am documenting. In my own little way....I can tell anyone what I, ...
