WalkAmerica is TOMORROW!

I've been trying to post about donating to the walk, but April has been an insane month!

All of you know my stories, but here's a quick recap:

When I was 26 weeks, 2 days pregnant with Caleb I went to the specialist for regular check-up. The checked my cervix length. It was pretty much gone - it was measuring almost .75 cen. They sent me directly to the hospital. With the help of medicine and strict bedrest, I was able to carry Caleb 4 more days. He was born October 10, 2005 at 26 weeks, 6 days gestation. Research from March of Dimes helped develop the medicines that helped me carry Caleb those 4 extra days. I can't even begin to tell you all the things MOD helped develop that Caleb used during his life.

Story #2: MOD's research helped stop my contractions with Nolan at 32 1/2 weeks. With both babies they gave me a shot to help speed the development of their lungs by one week - again from MOD! I strongly feel that shot is what kept Nolan out of the NICU. MOD also help develop the shots I got weekly with Nolan.

Please donate to WalkAmerica.

I am walking in memory Caleb and in honor of Nolan.

Help save babies!

countdown to 30

You would think I would do something special for my last few hours in my 20s. Instead, I'm doing what most people older then dirt do. I'm going to bed.

Here's something for you to think about until my next post:
I want a light weight stroller for Nolan. We're going to Disney in December and I don't want to take his huge, heavy stroller. I want the seat to recline enough for him to nap comfortably. I want a basket and cupholders. And I need to be able to fold the stroller with one hand while holding Nolan in the other arm. Most importantly, I don't want to spead a fortune!

To celebrate my birthday tomorrow I'm going to the tag office to renew my car tag then I'm going to work. Exciting, isn't it?

Goodnight. The next time I post, I'll be old. I may need bi-focals and a cane.

Sorry I haven't updated lately.

Here's run down of what's going on:

Nolan's 7 months old today.

My boss was killed in a car wreck April 1.

I will turn 30 Friday the 13th.

It will be 1 year since Caleb died on April 24.

I will be out of town part of next week for work stuff.

I'm not going to work April 23, 24, 25. I'm going to stay home and be sad.

I'm walking in WalkAmerica in honor of Nolan and in memory of Caleb. There's a link to the walking team in my links. Please donate money or join the team and walk with me. I was going to do a big long post about this, but I don't have the time or energy.
