1,2,3 breathe!

What a week! We've had everything from anxiety to sighs of relief to excitement to exhaustion! Which all in itself is EXHAUSTING!

Let's see, where to start well anxiety... Last week Eddie had an interview for a new position, it's exactly what he wants to do for a career and the perfect position for him. It's in CT but that's ok we can make that work.

We had a sigh of relief when we saw the babies tiny ventricles on the ultrasound (see last post) and a bigger sigh when we spoke to the neuro a d he gave us a green light to relax! No ultrasounds for 6 months or neuro visits unless something changes. We'll have a baseline MRI done then. I can't believe that things are calming down so much. 6 months ago I could never have imagined weeks with no appointments and a day without having to look over my shoulder. I'm now feeling like its easier to breathe. (I'm sure that some of that is thanks to baby Eddie sleeping through the night most nights!)

We are very excited since an apartment we've been really interested is officially ours! It's so perfect for us and accommodates our family perfectly. It's even really accessible in case we say a while and little Eddie has assistance devices. We're moving in really soon so the next couple of weeks will be full of packing!

We've also signed up to be a part of the Spina Bifida Association of Greater New England's "Walk and Roll" on June 16th. We are excited to participate in such a great organization. Check out our team page and please consider walking with us or donating.

Now to the exhaustion! Bella had been sick with a cold which has been no fun at all! Tonight she seems to be feeling a bit better but unfortunately baby Eddie seems to have caught it. I guess I'm lucky that he's gotten this far in cold season without catching one but I'm very freaked out about him getting sick and having the shunt. Inside I know that a cold is just a cold but this being the first time I'm a bit nervous. So between that and waiting to hear about the job for Eddie I'm all anxious again. Geez!

I'm learning through all of these trials and tribulations that I can't control all things and to just sit back, relax and let the universe guide us.
