New Friends and old ones
VP angel moms
DeAnna & Me
Met on the VP
Sara in from
What a weekend it was!!! My 'weekend' began on Thursday. I finally got to meet my "internet friend" (sounds kinda creepy) DeAnna. We met through the Vasa Previa discussion group--realized we were both from Indiana and just had to meet! She is way cool and someone who I can share my tears and laughs with about Connor and his death. Noone else in this world understands better than she does. We're both a bit goofy, sarcastic and airheaded at times--so it's a perfect match! We are doing our best right now to get the word out about Vasa Previa. If we can help prevent just one baby from losing it's life to Vasa Previa, then we will feel like we made a difference.
After meeting DeAnna I headed to the airport to pick up my friend, Sara, from Denver!!! She came to visit!!! It was originally planned that she would come out this summer to meet Connor, but we those plans changed and she came to hang out with me! We visited Purdue, went to our favorite bar--HARRY'S--met up with one of our other past roommates, Maria, and had a blast! After Purdue we went to go listen to Jeremy's band play. He's a rockstar and I'm so proud of him!! She headed back home on Monday, but will be back again in August! :) YAY!
Big milestone for me....I FINALLY got back into my 'pre-pregnancy' jeans! Ugh. After gaining 40 lbs during my pregnancy with Connor, I thought that those jeans were long gone. I have 6 lbs to go until we start trying for Baby Hall #2!!!
We are in the process of organizing a memorial 5K run/walk for Connor's 1st birthday--March 28, 2009. If anyone would like to volunteer their time, we'd love to have you there!
Hope everyone is doing well!
