Mostly Asleep, Increasingly Alert

I realized in my last post we hadn't captured many photos with Rigdon's eyes actually open. Thus, the following photos. Plus, we're getting to see his eye more frequently these days, so it's a bit easier to capture them.

Then I can't resist including the adorable pictures of our son sleeping. What you'll notice below is how he sleeps with this hands, by his face, always. Love him.

A Couple of Big, Fat, Reasons We Haven't Been Up to Much...

No Words necessary.
Creases when standing at 90 degrees.
A daily activity of Trevor's...
....a staying power of a sold 5 - 10 minutes.

It was very difficult for me to post those pics because they make me cringe! It's just so unbelievable though, so I couldn't pass up documenting this strange thing that's happening to my body. Everyone keeps asking if I have other signs of preeclampsia, but apparently my blood pressure is totally fine and there's no protein in my urine. The doc think I'm just dealing with sever pressure on the ol' vena cava, thus not allowing much circulation. The fact that I have no feeling in about 4 of my fingers on both hands would also suggest my circulation is suffering. I can NOT wait to have the tingling gone!!!!!!

This is the other reason we have been quite limited in our activities. Just look at him - that's what he looked like for a solid 4 days, just like he was on death's bed. I couldn't get him out of the gown for 72 hours at least. He just laid there, half comatose. Luckily, I can now say, he's recovering very well and we're hoping he won't have to deal with anymore dislocated shoulders for quite some time. The surgery took about 2 hours longer than expected because of the "mess" in his shoulder, but we both like the doc and are hopeful....for now.
Here is the nerve block they had pumping into his neck for the first 72 hours. He really wanted a picture of the wire coming out of his neck...that will be my back soon.

You'll also notice some splotches on his face - this was from his reaction to the pain meds. About 48 hours after surgery he started itching all over, uncontrollably, like a drug addict or little puppy dog. Needless to say he had to go off those drugs pretty quick which seemed to make things more bearable.

Lastly, the one thing we have done of late....that we actually have pictures a version of a camping trip. We basically went up American Fork canyon, started a fire with wet wood, and then left when we were done eating....Two pregnant people were on board, what do you expect you know? We went with good intentions...and a tent. Neither were used.
