Like Kyle and myself, Eddie and Mary experienced several losses before having this baby. Looking at their experience really gives me hope, because I see that even when you have problems in the beginning, a healthy baby can be the end result! I am so happy for this new little family :) We love you guys!

We sure had a crazy week! I will give you the details and try not to ramble on, how's that?
On wednesday I was taken to the ER at University Hospital because I was losing so much blood. I had a CT scan the night before to see exactly what had been going on in my uterus, so while in the ER I was told what the results were...
The cells from the molar pregnancy had grown back, and had turned in to an "invasive mole". Translation: The placetal cancer had seeped through the walls of my uterus. Also, the radiologist noticed some small tumors in my lungs, most likely stemming from the cells in my uterus.
While in the ER, I was given a test to see how much blood I lost. Turns out I was severely anemic; normal score is 40 and I was at 21. So, lucky me, I got to have a blood transfusion! (My nurse was pretty funny. I asked "How do I get the blood?" And he said "You have to drink it." :) I am totally Bella!) I got 6 units of blood; the scary thing is, you only have 8 in your body!
I then got an MRI to get a closer look at how far the cells had spread.
Then I was admitted to Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The next morning, the nurse helped me up, and I was bleeding worse than ever. The nurse was freaking out; even I hadn't ever seen that much blood before except on Law and Order! The oncologists came down and decided to do surgery to remove what they could in order to stop the bleeding.
The next day I got my first dose of chemo, and my adventure at Huntsman came to an end that afternoon. The good news is the chemo should kill everything within 8-10 weeks, and I won't loose my hair! :)

Future Fireplace... and home of Kyle's "50 inch T.V."... (Unless I have anything to say about that!)
Bedroom... I'm so excited!
Covered patio that Kyle finally talked me in to... I'm glad we did this now, but I was reluctant at first.

I don't know what is spookier... the haunted Halloween castle, or the monster with the crazy hair! Phoebe makes one cute Halloween Monster!
This picture made me laugh :)
