We R all Pooped out!

So on the 18th it was official!  Quote from Teaghen "The bad news is that I don't have my pirate pizza token, but the good news is that I pooped it out!  When we went to the Doctors office the nurse said as she was taking us back, "Now you guys can go through security!"  I was a little confused and thought we had to go through security now to see the Doctor!  Then it hit me!  Duh!  I wonder if it would set off the security at the airport!  I'm going to ask next time I fly!

So pretty much we are starting to go back to normal as a family.  I'm still getting treatment for my neck and it still hurts.  But I'm Wonderwomen Bullet Boobs and thunder thighs !  I really don't know what that has to do with my neck.  Teaghen is extremely cleaned out thanks to Myralax! And we are weening Taite off the Lortab pain meds for his throat!  

Oh I forgot!  I think Teaghen has pink eye!  I keep telling him it's because he forgot to wash his hand and he got poop in his eye! (I know I'm a mean mom but they have been washing there hands! Now if I can just get them to flush!)

Funny moment!  We were saying our prayers at bedtime when Teaghen thanked Heavenly Father for St. Patrick for teaching people about Jesus.  At least he didn't thank him for bringing people guinness!

What a (Un) Lucky Day!

One year ago on March 17th at 7am I was on my way to the hospital with "Rub Me For Luck!" written on my stomach with green permeant marker! Yah! I was going to have a baby! I was being induced two weeks early, do to my history of having large babies (9lbs 3oz, for my first Teagen and 10lbs for my second Taite, and both were a week or so early)! I thought, "This is my Lucky DAY!" Lets get this party started! 
My girlfriends had thrown me a surprise shower the night before and made a great basket with goodies to hand out to all the nurses and Doctors! I was thinking as I walked through those doors of Dixie Regional Hospital that "Yah I'll get the best treatment cause I got graffiti on my belly and a basket full of goodies." Everything was going just like I thought it would...smooth sailing, hanging out talking to Jer, trying to finalize the name choice from Tavin Day or Padric Day (march 17th St. Patrick's Day, we thought it was funny). 
I started to feel a little uncomfortable and thought, "I'm gonna get the drugs sooner or later so why not sooner?" Once the epidural was in, I was feeling pretty good. They keep putting that jelly stuff on my stomach to keep the monitors on the babies heart rate, and the other one for my contractions. Soon my permeant marker Tattoo was a big green mess all over my belly! 
Well I think that jelly stuff rubbed my luckiness right off! Shortly after that I remember having a horrible headache that I could not get rid of and to top that off I started throwing up! "Of all days to have a headache...Isn't bad enough that I have to shoot another human being out of my body and to have a headache on top of that!" Soon I became short of breath and it felt almost impossible to inflate my lungs. So they gave me some oxygen to help and I hung onto that mask like it was the only lifejacket on the Titanic! Then my arms and hands started to tingle, then I noticed my chest felt tingly as well............... And that was the last thing I remember! I really don't know what happened, but I just remember felling no pain and thinking to myself, "So this is what it feels like to die! Not bad! I could do this!" Then as quickly as I thought that, I remember my two little boys at home, and the strongest impression came over me "You have to get back to them, they need a mom!" I still cry when I think about those few minutes! I don't know what was happening in my room at that time but I felt like I was being pushed down a giant straw or those water slides where you can't see out. Then suddenly all the warm fuzzes I felt were replaced by the horrible pains that I had been dealing with before. I knew I was back. 
They said something had gone wrong with my epidural and it started to work a little to well. So well, my other organs wanted to get in on a little down time themselves. After that I was very reluctant to have another epidural. But the doctor came and said he would tone it down and it would be all good. After some coercing I gave in and he downed the dosage. 
Still suffering from the lovely headache, praying to the Porcelain God, and lack of oxygen, I was not feeling to chipper! To add salt into my wounds the Doctor told me that if things don't start happening he may pull the plug and wait til the next morning. Are you kidding! I made shirt for my boys saying "Kiss me my little Leprechaun Brother was born to day!" I painted my belly all fun, we have redheads freckle faced people in our family, and our last name is Day! So you don't tell me we are going to have this baby on March 18th... It's March 17th or nothin'. 
He said he'd give me a few more hours and come and check up on me! Shortly after that I had my Aunt and Uncle and cousins come see me. I asked for a blessing to help me with all the pain I was in. Shortly after they left I was saying good night to my boys when I felt my face and chest go numb and again. And according to my cousin Kristin I yelled "I'M GOING DOWN!" (which I don't remember saying, and I'm sure at the time it was scary, but now it is so funny!) Bamm! I was gone! This is the part I don't remember. But I was told that my little Tater Tot was holding my hand and rubbing it trying to get me to wake up. Thanks to my dearest and quick thinking cousin Kristin, she grabbed both my boys and took them out to the hall so they didn't have to see me like that. 
Obviously I came to again (right, cause I writing this blog so that means I'm alive, I hope I didn't ruin the surprise). This time I was not going to get an epidual. I called my friend Sara and said give me a 5 min version of how to have a baby naturally. Yah thanks for the advice, but I should have prepared a little earlier! I do remember something about rainbows, not sure if she said anything about that or I was that far gone. After a few hours of trying natural childbirth with a screaming headache and puking up bile (cause I haven't eaten anything in over 24hrs now), I became a little delirious and didn't know what was up and what was down. So my mom took charge and told the nurse to get a different doctor and fix my epidural. I don't remember talking to the doctor or much of anything else until I realized there was another needle in my back! Within a few minutes I was feeling better and the nurse came in and check me called for my OB... And at 10:58pm, Vola there he was my blue eyed red headed little leprechaun!

So was it a lucky day? Well we sure as crap didn't name him "Lucky"! But seriously... I was lucky to have the great nurses and doctors I did!
So the end to that story! It's one year later on the 1st birthday of Tavin Elliott Day, and I must say "I am the luckiest mom to be able to chew on his chubby cheeks, tickle him until he get the hick-up, and listen to his fake laughs, and get to see that amazing smile that shows off his two teeth and when I'm having a Bad Day I just go get my Tavin Day and it becomes a Great Day!"  

Love ya Tavers!
Happy Birthday

Tavin's 1st Birthday

Update to March Madness!

Where did I leave off!  Well we made it to the three day mark which would have put that token camping out in the small intestines for 12 days.  So needless to say we went back in to get another x-ray, hoping that mom just missed it when she was harpooning poop, and mining for a golden nugget!! Sure enough there it was!  It barely moved an inch if that!  The Dr. thought it was in the left side of the colon from the first x-ray, but when we got the x-ray on thursday, it had moved to the right (which is the wrong direction to the poop shoot!) Everything enters your colon from the right and goes out the left!

I have to interupt this update to give you another amazing TnTnT story!

I was interputed from the blog to go search for a coin in Teaghen poop and when I got to the bathroom... Teaghen is sitting on the toilet with is legs spread to the side, while Taite is peeing through Teaghen's leg, and Tavin is standing on the side waving his hands back in forth through the stream of pee like a little kid playing outside as his brother sprays him with the WATER hose!  My life is so adventurous!  

Back to the previous post!

So I threw my neck out on Tuesday falling off a bucket!  Don't ask!  Then on Thursday I went to lay down with Taite, who if you remember got his Tonsils out that monday.  And While I was laying down I coughed and threw it out again!  Later that night I had to take Teaghen in for the second x-ray and my cousin Kristin had to drive because I couldn't even look to the right or left! Looking oh so lovely and walking weird the Radiology tech asked what had happened to me...Blah Blah Blah I told her.  
Well sure enough my pain never went away so I went to the urgent care on Saturday.  When the Radiology tech came to get me she did a second take and then laughed a little!  What can I say!  We're famous! Everyone thinks I have a bulging disk or a ruptured disk!  Lovely for me!

Now it is Monday... Taite still drools a lot cause it still hurts to swallow!  I'm moving my head a little better thanks to some steroids and our good ol' friend lortab, and Teaghen ... well as you probably figured out after a lot of miralax and poops coming out as fast as a greased pig... I'm still digging around for gold and I am still a poor woman! yah This is the 16th day! We were suppose to go back for another x-ray today! 

But since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and little Tavin's birthday, we thought we would hold off one more day, and with a little luck of the Irish, maybe our redheaded leprechaun will find some gold and the END of the rainbow tomorrow!
