Love of our lives

*Sigh* Oh boy if you only knew....!

Golly gee it really has been too long hasnt it. Well there really is nothing to do but start fillin' everyone in! Life has been a real roller coaster. Ever since I got pregnant to now, we have been faced with some real obsticles. But hello! Me and Matt are champs and have been able to grow closer together through out this whole experience.
Most everyone close to us know the happs with mine and Matt's first baby. We kept it to ourselves and didnt share the news with everyone cause.....well we didnt really know what we were dealing with and just wasnt ready to talk about it. We found out at 20 weeks that baby Jax had something called an omphalecele. What is an omphalecele? Well to say it simply...Jax was born with his bowels and liver outside of his belly and was covered with a sack. No belly button, and yes it was very scary!
Long story short...I had a c-section and the most beautiful baby boy! Because of his condition we spent 2 long emotional months in the Phoenix childrens hospital Nicu. Was the hardest thing Ive ever had to do. No one could ever understand until they have a sick baby in the hospital. Anyways! We learned how to feed him thru an NG tube that was up his nose and helped the home nurse change his wound vac that was helping push the O back in his belly as he grew.
A couple weeks ago Jax had surgery to close the muscles. It looks amazing!
Ahhh! Matt is making me jump in the pool with him...
Im posting this and coming back to post pics!
