So our birth didn't go exactly as planned. Tatum was born at the hospital by ceacerian on Friday May 26th. Soon after which he was on a life flight to Primary Childrens Hospital with his daddy by his side and mommy left to recover in St. George. For the next 48 hours we were all heart broken and devistated. Since then we have hade time to cope and pull our feelings together and all we really care about is taking home our precious baby boy home. He has a cleft palat and some heart problems and he just had surgery on his esophagus and trachea to repare the trachea and put the esophagus together because the middle part wasn't there so they just connected the two ends together. His right ear didn't form fully and he only has one kidney, but he's a strong fighter and is hanging in there. He really is beautiful and has stolen all of our hearts and thrown us through the ringer!
Asher Olivia and Avaree are having a hard time with me being gone for so long but Brandon went home with his parents yesterday and the kids are so glad to have grandma and grandpa watching them during the day and daddy home at night. I miss them so much I'm in tears every time I have to say goodbye on the phone. I'm so looking forward to seeing them this weekend and I really hope they all get better soon. They've all had the flu this week and it breaks my heart to have to be so far away and not be the one comforting them and cleaning up the mess. It's hard to have to have other people taking care of all of my responsibilities. I hope everyone knows how much I love and appreciate them. I have amazing sisters and sister in-laws that have been there for my family so so much this last week. I love them so much! All of my family members and friends have sent their love and support in any ways they can even if it's just a phone call or text. I love you all so much! My brother James has been here every minute he can and I really appreciate his support. I love all of my family so much!
Thanks again for all of the love and support!
