Home from a relaxing weekend

We're back from our weekend in Park City. It was so relaxing. Even though we did stuff everyday, we were away. I do feel much better, although I still just feel rundown. And my energy has yet to come back, which is still making me crazy. You'll be happy to know though that I did get an appointment with my doctor for Oct. 1, so I'm not totally neglecting myself.
On Saturday Ray kept all the boys and I went to Swiss days with my mom and my aunt. Swiss days is like a huge boutique, celebrating the swiss that live in that valley. That was what I needed. To not be a mom for a day. Sunday we went shopping at the outlet stores, (got some great deals, of course) and went to the alpine slide to play. The alpine slide is a huge slide that goes down a mountain. You take a ski lift to get up there and then you ride these sleds down a track. They also have a coaster, which is the same thing but it sits on a track, and you ride up the mountain in the coaster. That was a great time too. Today before we came home, we went to visit Michelle and see her house. Then we went to a great mexican restaraunt before coming home. We didn't take hardly any pics this weekend. I don't know why. Relaxing to much I guess. I did take this one of Carter and Jax in the condo.
These pics are from Michelles house. Check out that view. I could wake up to that every morning, but only in the summer. I can't imagine winter at her house. They literally live in the mountains, its breathtaking.

Preslie was doing some serious checking Jax out time. Look at that face. Jax face looks the biggest its been yet.


I had to stick this one in because I thought it was so cute of her beautiful blue eyes.

Jax is having an MRI of his heart and lungs on Wednsday. I'm not too excited about that given his current respitory status. I don't know if putting him on the vent for an MRI is a good idea, we might have a hard time getting him back off. Not to mention the IV problem. This is all done down in MRI and not in the OR, so we'll see how it goes. Its supposed to be a same day thing, but I'm not sure if they'll even get an IV to get this done. It will take a week to get the viagra approved, so he wants this done in the meantime. I'm not quite sure what he's looking for. I know he wants to see if there are any clots in his lungs that we haven't seen before. I just can't wait for my ped to get back on Wednsday. She's been gone this whole time and doesn't have a clue on whats going on. I really need her advice. I know she'll be happy to get home to her favorite client ;)

Sounds like a great relaxing weekend. I haven't been to swiss days for years - but I do remember how much I liked it. I'm glad you got some time to be away from everything (including the kids for a while).

Good luck Wednesday - hopefully it will just be an in and out thing. I'm sure your ped will be excited to hear all that has happened with Jax while she has been gone - and then offer great advice. If by chance you end up staying at Primary's longer we will be up on Friday and could visit!

I am so glad you had some down time to yourself. Hon, you have so much going on I can see why you are rundown. Know I am praying for Jaxson daily and for his tests Wednesday.

I am so happy that you enjoyed your weekend and were able to relax and have fun! You definitely need that!

Preslie is ADORABLE!!! I'd have a hard time keeping my hands off of her!

I'll be praying that Jax's MRI goes well and that you get some answers and some solutions! Why do they have to intubate him?

Take care of yourself! I'll be praying and thinking of you! HUGS!!!

I'm so glad you got away with the family, and then got away without the family! It sounds like a nice, relaxing time. Swiss Days sounds like fun.

I hope that the MRI goes smoothly and easily and he comes right off the vent. Hopefully something will show up in the results that will give them some answers!

Wow that couch looked new. Did they finally start fixing things up? I remember taking Carter on that coaster (man it was like 2 years ago) it was so fun.

Praying things go okay tomorrow. Preslie is a beauty!

Emily said...

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! Her view looks completely gorgeous... I hope to see it this weekend!
Praying for Jaxson and his upcoming tests...

so many things - I am glad you had a good weekend and time off. You needed it my friend.

The MRI - here's hoping they can get access, not to mention the vent. Poor sweet love. The things we do to them to get them better or at least more stable.

Y'all continue in my prayers!

Michelle said...
