We have had SO many reach out for a recent update on Magnolia and I… and SO much love given to us, so we figured a quick update would be a great idea😊
After 10 long weeks in the hospital and the best case scenerio for Magnolia’s delivery, we evacuated the molar AND have a healthy baby GIRL (yes, I am no longer only a boy-mom!!!). For only being 34 weeks, Maggie only had a 6-day precautionary hospital stay (which she absolutley flew through with no issue at all). The lump that was pushing on her eye turned out to only be a clog, just like we figured. Once her little valve opened, it drained and she was even more beautiful than ever💕
We are both home now, safe and sound! Learning to juggle 4 kiddos – two under two! Little titus (age 1.5) is suffering a little bit of separation anxiety. He is a strong boy though, and will get better:). Baby Magnolia is still in the 4lb range so the post partum anxiety has hit me hard… and daddy is awake most of the night anxious about her, as well as night terrors about my health (😊 he is learning to cope, lol) He went through a very stressful time and his mind is still adapting. We love him for handling it so well!
Lastly, today was my first follow up in Milwaukee. We learned that the pathologist did indeed officially label it a twin molar pregnancy based off of the microscope results of the mass. Now it is our job to monitor my HCG levels every week. If they do not go to negative, I will begin Chemo to cure the cancer side. If they DO go to negative and stay there, that would mean I did not develope cancer from the molar! Today was my first blood draw to begin testing. While we pray fervently for no cancer… we are just so graciously happy to all be home again together. It is so hard to even fathom complaining ever again. I am so thankful for everything I have and even for all we have been through this year. It all truly is a blessing and brought so many great things… God surely knows what He is doing. While Chemo and any other treatments needed would be another hurdle, it too, will somehow be a blessing. This I know.
Thank you again for all of the LOVE and especially the prayers! I don’t know for sure when we will know my final update will be. But I promise to not forget to share😊
We love you all❤
