Chantail -
dyk - You will love the Ipad 2!! :-) I really like it!! SO helpful to have and I use my laptop a lot but most of my browsing is done on the Ipad.

dyk - I hope that your SIL recovers and doesn't need to have her spleen removed especially with a surgery and then delievering a baby so soon!! Hopefully the baby gets better and no more jaundice.

dyk - Oh no to your FIL.....I hope that he is able to improve! Thinking of your whole family! Is this bringing back memories of your dad and such?

dyk hey care.
dyk can't wait...have a webinar (conf. call online) for fastapps that my ipad2 is coming with on tues.
dyk can't wait to get it.
dyk my sil is home, and rested lots today....her vitals are good, and charlotte is doing great...eating 2 ounces a feed...sleeping pretty good.
dyk her and mckenna look alot alike as newborns...so will be funny to see how similar they are as she grows.
dyk mckenna has been in a growth spurt for the last two days, eating sooo much every 2 to 2.5 hours during the day, same sleep at night, knock on wood...my boobs are so empty.
dyk my fil said today he wants a heart attack to take him.
dyk the chemo is really hurting him, hard cause he isn't taking one kind, he is taking three.
dyk so insane
dyk they are looking at stopping chemo....and just having quality.
dyk horrible decision.
dyk it doesn't bring back memories, surprisingly, but I have been really emotional, and crying more for my dad....could be hormones though.
dyk shin splints are bad, but icing and stretching, so hopefully it will help
dyk we ran tonight, had been a week....so insane.
dyk but cut off time, pushed it, but gave myself a cramp, so stopped but stil beat my best time, horrible time, but working on it.
dyk thanks....was fun, we had the girls (my two neices) for four days, so was hard....but they went home yesterday, so today was just the four of us, but had friends over to swim, and then went to visit the fam. then friends over again to swim at night, and run.
dyk hope everyone has a great fourth of july tomorrow.
dyk dh was off wed, left early and home earlier cause of his dad thurs, and friday holiday.....so...been nice having him home, not for the reason...but will be weird, nolan is done school and both kids all week.
dyk care how are you? how was your weekend? how is the pregnancy going? can't believe you are in your 2nd trimester....seems to be going so fast.

DYK I am glad you SIL is doing better?

DYK I hope she is getting lots of help as I can't imagine having to care for a newborn after all she has been through?

DYK sending lots of prayers to your FIL....it all just doesn't seem fair that the what is supposed to help cure is what makes you so sick? :(

DYK WTG on cutting your running time...yay! Take care of those shin splints! :)

DYK I hope you had a good time swimming and enjoyed some time with your DH?

DYK the 4th party on Saturday was fun and my nieces and nephews loved their new puppy...he is so cute?

DYK my DH won the Texas Hold Em' tournament too...awesome!

DYK I am so missing my kids today....can't wait to pick them up....hope I don't have to work late?
