Last night he took a turn for the worse, and he had to make yet another trip to the ER this morning. Alice took him because I had to stay with the babies, and I hated every second of that. He was in a bad way he finally made it back up to LDS hospital, and once they took his vitals his oxygen saturation level was only at 50. Alice said everyone on staff were all really concerned, rushing to get him stable, and after having a CT of his lungs, he was placed in ICU.
They don't know for sure what is wrong. He is still in the ICU and probably will be for the next day or so. They are not sure that it is actually pneumonia, but couldn't do further testing today because he is just too sick, and is requiring too much oxygen.
I am scared beyond reason, and have a constant knot in my stomach. Seeing my husband.. the father of my babies hooked up to so many machines, and feeling so weak, is a terribly frightening thing.
So far we don't know much... The doctors just keep saying that he is really, really sick. They are going to attempt more tests tomorrow when he is hopefully doing better.
My poor husband... he needs our prayers. I will keep giving updates as I know more.

Poptart was kicking ever so innocently on a blanket, Minie was piladging through any fateless item that chose to cross her path, and I was just *relaxing (relaxing?? really, who relaxes with an 18 month old in the room?)on the floor next to Popps...(possibly being distracted for the eensiest bit of time by the new season of The Bachelor ;) ) , when out of no where flys a small, yet very powerfull fist of metal snowflake. The dang thing came crashing down on to sweet Poppie's face... a little love smack (if you will) from big sis . Anyway, She OF COURSE started screaming immediately. And I am not talking your run of the mill cry, these were the 40 second wind up doozies, the breath holders, the cries that give us all fare warning, that baby is about to explode.
And explode she did. She turned three shades of purple, and cried SO hard, for SO long that she puked. Meanwhile, Miss Mins thinks this is absolutely hilarious, and just continues to repeat "Baby! Baby! Baby!". Dustin rushed down stairs to save his girls, and found little miss destrution red handed. She was awarded a spanken, and her first trip to time out... "and he meant it!"
Of course Crazyhorse was forgiven, as truly she didn't have a clue she was hurting Poppy. But honestly!!! The girl is crazy busy, and we are all a little frightened. Poppy is now sporting a pretty good lookin' bruise, and some impressive swelling to boot!
And that ladies and Gentlmen is what we call a 16 month age gap...
we pray that Poppy will make it out of her first year alive :)
And believe you me... I'v got many more stories where that came from..
I love you so much my girl.
You are my main squeeze, and I will always be there to protect you smoosh.

Robyn and I took this sweet family's photos right after Thanksgiving, and they are just NOW finished...
Allison.. thank you so much for your patience. I know I told you it would be longer than normal, and I so appreciate you understanding!
I wanted to post some type of preview, because I have never shot a family this big, and well yes, I feel like some feat was achieved between this and Poppy's arrival.
I hope you love them Allison. The discs will be to you by the end of the week!
