Every since my tubal back in May, I have been battling depression. It seems like everywhere I look there is a baby, an announcement  or pregnant person. Most of the time I just want to cry. I should be 32 weeks at the point and preparing for a new one, instead I am hoping every month that this will be our month. Went to the OB/GYN and we will hopefully have a rainbow baby in the near future.

Hello Again...

Wow, it has been a long time since I posted. I got locked out of my account and finally managed to get back in. Things have been a wild a crazy ride since I last posted. Let's see...We moved to Vinita, My mother inlaw built her house on to ours so we all live together now, I found out I have Fibromyalgia and possibly Lupus, I had surgery for PCOS and other issues, got pregnant that next month that ended in a tubal, and now we are on the road to recovery. I think that is the shortest and easiest way to catch you up on me.

  As far as the kids go. Elijah will be 6 in Jan and goes to Kindergarten now. He loves it. Amelia is 4 and a half and goes to Pre-k and Gabby will be 2 next month. Boy does time fly!

For Charlie, he still works for the same company. He works from home 2 days a week and travels to Tulsa the other 3. He really likes his company and they are pretty good to him.

I have truly missed blogging and hope to get back to it.

A New Chapter

The Welch Family will be starting a new chapter in our lives. We have been asked to move back to Vinita to help with the animals and money situations. We hate to leave Vinita, but I think it is where God is calling us to be right now.

Hopefully we can get back into the Bible study that we loved so much. I am also hoping to put Eli into church school, if we can afford it. I have a friend that just lives a few miles away and her kids and mine like to play. Maybe I will actually get some adult interaction, since all my friends this way are usually busy.

Please pray that this goes smoothly for us and is what we are supposed to be doing.

One Tough Week

Charlie's dad went home to be with his Heavenly Father on Monday. It has been a long, tough and sad week. Jim was a great man and loved by many. He has been a father to me for the last 8 years. Going to the hospital and the funeral was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

I am sad that my children will never get the opportunity to know their Papa. They are so young and don't understand what is going on. Makes it so much more difficult.

As a wife to a man who lost his dad is tough. I feel like there is nothing I can do to help. I have been a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen, but I wish there was something I could do to ease the pain.

We are still hanging on just knowing that he is no longer suffering and he is with God celebrating. One day the skies will open up and we can join him. I think all who knew Jim thinks that day cant come soon enough. One of these days there will be no more sickness, suffering, tears, or sadness. I can't wait for that day!

Roller Coaster Week

It has been a roller coaster of a week for our family. Saturday was Eli's birthday party. Mary were(Charlie's mom)called and said they weren't coming because Jim wasn't feeling well. Just as the party essay starting Mary called and said that somebody needed to get thee quick and help her get their dad to the ER. We went ahead with the party and Charlie's brothers went to assist. While the party was going we got word that he was being life flighted to a bigger hospital. He wound up having a massive heart attack and stroke.

Sunday morning we got a call.saying things had got serious and that Mary had signed a DNR and they started calling the family in. We all gathered around and prayed. Within minutes his oxygen levels started to rise. Later that afternoon we git news that his heart wasn't as bad as they thought it was and was actually pumping at about 60%. That was such a relief!

Every day since Saturday, he gas made small improvements. A few hours ago we got mire bad news. Jim has either had two more heart attacks or one long one. They are prepping him now
for a procedure.

I'm asking if you guys could please pray for Jim and the family.

We did our Christmas with my mom and little sister about a week early due to schedule conflicts. The kids were so excited at what Santa brought them. Eli got a train table and Amelia got a princess kitchen from Santa. Here are some pics from that..

We did Christmas with Charlie's side on Christmas Eve. It was really nice to see all the family and let the kids play. Here is the kids in their Christmas outfits.

All the kids together

Then on Christmas day we went to our friends house and had lunch and a small gift exchange. After visiting we went and did a few Christmas light tours.

Gabriella Harley Welch

 Sorry it took so long...

Gabriella was born via c section Nov 29th at 7:34 am. She weighed 7lbs 3oz and was 21 inches long (My biggest baby yet)
My c section had some complications. The anesthesiologist couldnt get my spinal in so I got stuck about 6 times and had a dose and a half of meds when it was all through. Boy did that hurt and it is still hurting.
Gabby came out healthy and fine. We got to come home on Thur, but I wound back up in the ER Friday night. I had a fever and was in extreme pain. They ran all kinds of test and everything came back normal. They gave me a heavy dose of antibiotic just in case and sent me home with some also. What is aggravating is that the pain was from the spinal and not the c section itself.

Fever left the next day and my back is doing much better. They antibiotics they gave me caused a yeast infection in my incision though. Thank goodness that is about gone. Not a fun thing to have.

We are all doing pretty well (besides the cold I have now). Eli and Amelia love their little sister. They are constantly wanting to hold her and in her face. Then try to help out as much as possible also. Gabby is having a little trouble sleep some night though. Sometimes its every two hours and other nights she will be up from midnight to 5 am. I am one tired mommy, but it is so worth it.
