Alison has been recovering wonderfully from the surgery, pregnancy, and all of the sleepless nights and days. However, yesterday she strained a muscle in her abdomen and now she can barely get up on her own. She walks around fine but just using her stomach muscles to move up and down is very painful. The percocet isn’t seeming to help any!

I’ve had to work part-time this week, so we’re both thankful that her parents could help out. However, we’re both dying to see some of our friends. I know Alison has cabin fever and is really ready to be part of the normal world. If any of you are in the Williamson area, please call us up and drop by. (Note: this doesn’t apply to people reading this blog that we do not know!)

Emma Kate is sleeping about 20 hours a day which is what the doctors want. She burns too many calories while she is awake. She has a very healthy appetite and would eat all day if she could!

Thanks to all of you have posted comments on the website and have sent emails. I think we’ve had 80¬†friends¬†leave very nice comments and an additional 100+ people send emails. I don’t know if we’ll have a chance to write all of you back, but I’m going to try. Thanks to all for showing your love and concern. We truly appreciate it!

    Congratulations! Emma Kate is beautiful. We loved seeing all the pictures and can’t wait to see her in person. We are glad everyone is doing well and we know you will both be great parents. We would have watched the videos, but…dial-up, you know. Kiss that beautiful blonde bombshell for us. We love you! See you in October.
