OK, so there's my pity party! This week has been a little crazy, but we still have so much to be thankful for. I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday!

Of course, when we got home Kyle noticed that the same movie was on The Disney Channel. Go figure! At least we got to watch it without commercial interruptions. It was a pretty good movie, the girls seemed to like it. There were a few parts that I thought were a little inappropriate for kids (a suicide attempt?! Mr. Incredible did save him, though!). We had a great night and the girls thought it was so much fun!

Keri is THRILLED about taking more pictures:
And this my friends, is what happens when Mommy takes a potty break. I was gone for 60 seconds and Kendal made a HUGE mess all over herself, the kitchen floor, and the carpet. Where was Kyle, you ask? In the recliner 3 feet away.
We laughed and Kyle suggested I take a picture. Then I put the girls in the tub, Kyle cleaned the carpet, and Champ cleaned the kitchen floor. Keri and Kendal loved their special treat tonight!!!!
Stirring the pancakes:
Little Miss Attitude! Kyle says she looks like me in this picture.....no way!
Last picture, I promise!
Kendal slept in today (thanks to the 2 year molars coming through, she was up many times last night) but wanted to take a picture with Daddy. This is what her hair looks like first thing in the morning.

The pathology results confirmed the doctor's suspicions that it was in-fact a partial molar pregnancy. She said that she hasn't seen anyone with a molar/partial molar pregnancy in 2-3 years, it is that uncommon! I'm not going to try & explain what that is because it is pretty complicated, but here is the info on the March of Dimes website if you are interested (you may have to click on the question: What is a molar pregnancy?): http://www.marchofdimes.com/professionals/14332_1189.asp#head7
I have to go back in for more follow-ups than I expected. She did a full-panel blood work up today and I have to go in for blood work to check my hCG levels every week. I will go weekly until the levels drop below 5, then I will go every 4 weeks. My hCG levels will be monitored closely for at least 6 months.
There is a small chance that the molar tissue can grow back, then I would have to have another D & C. There is also a chance that the molar cells could grow back cancerous. That is why it is so important to monitor my hCG levels so closely.
My doctor said that she expects everything to go well, but it is important to be extra cautious. I am a little nervous about the whole process, but am optimistic that my levels will go down and stay down without any further problems. Of course I have learned through all of this that I am not really the one in charge; God had a different plan for us right now. "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:13
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers.
