Long Overdue

Michelle at In the Life of a Child awarded me with the Daily Dose award. :) The award is supposed to be passed along to “All the blogs that you’ve discovered that you can’t possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog.” Michelle, you have become a true cyberfriend, and I thank you for stumbling upon my blog. I applaud and appreciate your eloquence and ability to remind me that life changing medical issues still qualify as a life.

Michelle also granted me with these awards, and each one made me feel special. I've never received a blog award until Michelle gave me several. They were uplifting, and I hope they are for others as well.

So since the point of a blog award is to pass it along, here I go:

These ladies are my preeclampsia survivor friends, and I think I would have gone a little crazy had I not had my PE survivor community to hold me up in dark days. You ladies deserve all of these awards. Please pass them on!

There is one more person I want to acknowledge here, but she is not a blogger. I visit with my long lost twin, jen_miracles, on the Preeclampsia Survivors discussion forum just about everyday. I "met" her shortly after Meghan was born. Like me, she developed severe preeclampsia twice, and earlier the second time around. This is a rare way to develop it, and she and I have that in common among some other things. Jen, if you had a blog, you'd get these awards too. :)

Hey! Thanks for visiting me! Your site has lots of alpha 1 info I'm gonna check out. We're still relatively new to the journey and the past two years have been so packed I'm only now getting time to breathe! BTW, son #2's kerotyping is in, type SZ. Hubby's should be in soon, his screeners were post back in January. I'm gonna keep checking back!

To my special twin, Jen: thanks SO much for including me in the awards given here. Knowing you and what we share with our PE experiences is so important to me. I appreciate all you do for the world of PE Survivors and moms of preemies.

awww thank you!!! I'm sorry it took so long for me to get back here! I took a blogging hiatus after the baby was born and I just came back (there are some changes at Captain Poopy). Anyway, hope you're doing well! Thank you so much! I love my PE survivor friends and I couldn't have gotten through it without every one of them!
