Joy and Bella from earlier in the week.
On Wednesday, after our doctor’s appointment, we got news that two of our girls were stuck in Utah. They had been visiting a friend. They flew out on standby. They had looked at the schedule and it didn’t look good for getting them home before Monday when school started. So Jason and I made the rash decision to drive up there and get them. We drove all night and the whole of the next day to arrive at 11:30 PM. We crashed for a couple of hours. We needed to turn right around and get back, but we were so close to my friend Lacey’s house. I just had to see them! That morning we drove across the valley and meet Jaxson!!! They seem like such wonderful people on their blog, but blogs can be deceiving- they only show what you want people to see. I have to tell you the Ruggs are a wonderful family. They are the real deal. They welcomed us and let us interrupt their morning to meet sweet Jax – and on Tanner’s birthday too! I LOVED meeting Lacey, Jaxson, Ray, Mondo, Tanner, and Carter. Makayla is one lucky little girl!
Thanks Ruggs!! Thanks Jax for the smiles and the kisses!
What about Bella during that time? I wanted to take her with us. I had never left her before. But I kept seeing problems. I didn’t have enough oxygen on hand. Her med prep alone would have taken hours. So in the end we left her at home with her nurses and her normal environment. She did great! Her nurses sent me pictures and texts. She satted beautifully. She was an angel. I was so nervous. I have never left her before, but she did great. I am so grateful!
