The Transplant

Many of you know that my Mom has been waiting for a lung transplant for awhile now and it finally happened, Wednesday night my Mom called me at around 8:00 pm to tell me they had a match! My initial reaction was a few tears I really wanted to be there, but didn't know if I was going to make it to San Fran be for the operation! I said a quick prayer to calm myself and collect my thoughts and then I began to pack! luckily we had a few hours of testing and waiting be for they took her down to the operating room.
Macie was with me and she woke up to be fed while they were getting Mom prepped, Mom was able to play with her and rock her to sleep!
My Mom seemed ready for this day, more so than the rest of us, Dad and I were able to stay there with her until they took her down for the operation which began at 6:20 am, she was brought up to the ICU at around 2:00 pm The surgery went well and she is making great progress, she is still in the ICU as of today but that should be changing very soon. The new lungs are functioning very well and Dad is at her side every minute possible! I am so thankful for the gospel and the love of family I have, Heavenly father blesses us in more ways than we recognize but I'm grateful for all I have!

Scooby Zooooo

As parents I think we all talk about not passing our fears onto our children, but when it comes to snakes, I'm not sure I can help it.
Jayson and I have been talking about taking Mia to the Zoo since we had her, and since we lived in Sacramento up until 4 months ago, you would have thought we would have done it by now, but no, didn't happen! So last week while we were trying to figure out what to do on Columbus Day, The Medrano's brought up the Zoo, and we were in!
Mia is in love with animals, she can pretty much do all the sounds, so we knew she would love the Zoo!
The lion was a hit and she loved the pink flamingos, as I said before, I hate snakes, so we breezed through the reptile room and onto the giraffe! needless to say she loved it!
After the Zoo we had allot of time to spare so we headed to a pumpkin patch, where we fed Goats and a scary Lama, I'm so proud of Mia and how brave she is, she went straight up to the animals and let them eat right out of her hand! We also picked out some pumpkins to carve!

It was a very fun Day, Thank you Medrano's for getting us into gear, and helping us take the girls to the Zoo!

Macie's Blessing

We were in redding this last weekend to bless Macie and we had a busy but wonderful time, Macie was such an angel during the blessing and looked like an angel too! I always love having my family around!

We were lucky enough to have many of our friends come and it was wonderful!
