December 13th: our little “elf” was found lifting and stretching to make sure that he is ready for Christmas Eve (presents can be heavy 🎁)! He also had a trainer with him to keep him on track.. but the trainer is just a little too affectionate.

Still admitted and hoping for discharge today. Max has Brochilitis and has been needing frequent deep suctioning so they wanted to monitor him for another night. If he is not needing deep suctioning today then we are allowed to go home. Besides his secretions and wheezing Max is happy and active but so bored! The activity room sent him toys and books since we are on contact and droplet precautions. We are not allowed to really be around other people especially kids without protection. Praying for the best today! Thank you for all the well wishes! Our gladiator is remaining strong and brave! The doctors and nurses are smitten by his eyes and playful nature! #gladiatorinthenicu #maximusgene #MaxONEthebattle #nicugrad #nurselife #miraclebabies #marchofdimes #modernburlap #fisherprice #dreamingofdisney #preemielife

One week from today this feisty little miracle has to go in for surgery. He has no fear and looked at me and said “surgery will make me feel better Mom”. I stay strong for him because he’s an absolutely amazing 5 year old. #micropreemie #daunte #marchofdimes #nicugrad #27weekpreemie #momsmiracle #youngestson #toughguy #lovehim

With Tad Fujikawa, a professional golfer since he was 16 years old, at the 10th March of Dimes Tad Fujikawa Invitational Golf Tournament at Kapolei Golf Course in Kapolei, Hawaii today, December 12, 2017. I think the last time I golfed was 7 years ago. It was fun!

I’m going to share something most don’t know about me. .
On December 16, 2015, after 3 days of labor, we welcomed our premature baby at 35 weeks 5 days. Luckily, his lungs and all major organs were developed. I’ll never forget the neonatologist standing over me and saying “don’t be alarmed if he doesn’t scream or move. We don’t know how developed he’s going to be.” Thankfully, he came out screaming like a banshee, and we all took a deep breath of relief. He was in the nicu for 7 days due to breastfeeding jaundice (because breastmilk doesn’t go through they’re system, he wasn’t able to get the bilirubin out. He had to be formula-fed for 3 days). .
Fast forward to almost exactly 2 years later, we found out I was pregnant again. Yay! Right? Not really. .
While I tried to be as excited as possible, nothing could shake the fear of having another premature baby and going through all of that again. The fear, the anxiety, the anger, the depression, and the never-ending tears. .
Because of my history of premature labor, my ob/gyn told me that I had to get a shot of progesterone every week from 16 to 36 weeks to keep me pregnant. Believe me when I say that I would’ve taken the shot every single day if that avoided preterm labor. .
While the shots do hurt and it’s pretty painful to get an injection with progesterone and oil (imagine a giant syringe filled with oil and slowly injecting that into your glut 😑), it’s nothing I can’t handle. .
One side effect that I didn’t realize was that I would have these giant lumps at the injection site because the base is oil. .
Every Monday night after I get my shot, I dilute 3 drops of frankincense in vitamin e oil and rub it on the injection site. This helps the lump go away faster and helps the pain and itchiness disappear. .
I never knew my love of frank until I got my premium starter kit, and I never knew 2 years later that I would still be depending on my oils during my pregnancy for different reasons. During the first pregnancy, it was for stress relief and skin care. During this pregnancy, I still use them for stress relief, but now I use them I help soothe side effects from my injections.🌱

BEST.DAY.EVER
No words will ever express this moment. To feel her warmth, her tiny movements, her chest against mine as she breathes. Pure perfection in every sense. She handled it so well, gazed up at me so sweetly and breathed over the machine the entire time. Nothing will ever compare to this moment.

E had her last Conductive Ed class today of the session. The snow storm didn't stop her from going and she had a great day with her friends and the conductors. One thing she worked on was her crouching and putting weight on her heels. Now she has a break till the new year!

What can trigger abuse during pregnancy? For many families, pregnancy can bring about feelings of stress, which is normal. But it's not okay for your partner to react violently to stress. Some partners become abusive during pregnancy because they feel: • Upset because this was an unplanned pregnancy • Stressed at the thought of financially supporting a first baby or another baby • Jealous that your attention may shift from your partner to your new baby, or to a new relationship (via #marchofdimes)

We celebrated Christmas early with some of our youngest patients at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Since these little ones aren’t able to enjoy the holiday at home just yet… we brought the celebration to them!
Families with a child in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) enjoyed food, crafts and visited with Santa and Mrs. Claus at a party just for them, hosted by the March of Dimes Young Professionals Board. Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy a great afternoon of Christmas cheer!

In November every party I hosted for @arbonne was done with a purpose.. My host selected a charity of their choice and I donated 50% of my commissions to that Charity... my sister selected @marchofdimes in memory of her son Noah Thomas and I am so happy that today I was able to make a donation in his name 💙
.
.
So thankful for the opportunity @arbonne has given me to give back more while helping to improve the health and wellness of myself and those around me ♥️
