No news is good news

I know since we have gotten home I have neglected my blog writing.  We really have had nothing new to share.  We are home and are settling in to our new normal.

The boys still love Evangelynn!  They love holding her and telling her good morning and Asher loves to tell her "Hi-ee" over and over again.  I have a hard time keeping track of what day it is since I'm up during the night every three hours nursing.  I was talking to Danielle yesterday and it made me tired to think of how little sleep I'm actually getting. 

Evangelynn did give us a scare last week when the pediatrician called and said we needed to come in right away!  Her PKU screening that is done by the state came back borderline normal so they wanted to re-do the test and send her to Children's for some additional blood work.  The blood work at Children's was looking for symptoms of the borderline condition and it came back normal.  Also, one of the symptoms would be Evangelynn not waking up to eat (we don't have that problem) and her losing weight.  On Monday we went back for a weight check and she actually gained weight and was up to 6 pounds!  We are now waiting the re-screening results to come back, but her doctors seem confident they will be normal.

I had a few quiet moments to write this because Asher has re-taken up his morning nap.  Now I'm going to go enjoy the rest of this quiet with a cup of instant coffee (better than no coffee) and an apple fritter.

Have a good day!
