A little over a year ago, on november 17th of 2009 around ten in the morning, I went for my 7 month check-up during my prenancy feeling great. The nurse started the check up procedure by taking my blood pressure and it was extremely high.... when it kept steadily rising, I was life flighted to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Ks. where I was pumped with magnesium sulphate through an IV and then blood pressure pills after that for a couple of days until the doctors got it under control. On the fourth day, my blood pressure started creeping up again and on november 21st, I delivered two and half pound Emelia Paige Sorah into this world two months early.
She spent five weeks in the hospital before we were able to bring her home......then six weeks indoors until we could finally show off our new baby girl! She then got RSV and we were sent back to the hospital after being home for over a month. I can't believe it has been a year since her birth... her adjusted age is 10 months. It is hard to tell by looking at her now that she was a preemie! Beside the fact that she is small, she is completely healthy and has no health issues. God is soo soo good and I thank Him daily for keeping his hand on her.
She crawls all over the place and pulls her self up to standing position. She also walks along the couch when she wants to. She tries to copy everything we say and loves to clap her hands, bounce to music and make all kinds of different noises. We celebrated the actual day of her birthday at Bro. and Sis. Smith's house with a cake and gifts. We are currently in revival with them and they were so sweet to help make this day special! The day after her birthday, we flew to California to be with my family for thanksgiving. We threw Emme a big birthday bash at my mom's little cafe and bakery.....she loved every minute of it! We had a wonderful thanksgiving dinner at mom's shop as well. I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving! I will be posting pictures soon so stay tuned!
