to answer your question

No, I was not holding Evelyn. Thank goodness. The thought of falling down the stairs with her gives me nightmares.

Because of the heavy duty pain meds I'm on I cannot nurse her right now. I'm super sad about it.

I am not allowed to lift anything, so I can't pick Evie up at all. This made me cry.

So, my mom picks her up and hands her to me and I get to feed her bottles. It's not as good, but it's something. This will be my life for about a month.

I miss my baby girl.


  1. I'm sorry. That sucks.

    I actually did fall down the stairs at my parent's house holding Gideon when he was around 4 months old. It was only the last few stairs, but it scared the crap out of me, and he screamed for like 5 minutes. Neither one of us were really hurt, but we were both bawling. Me because I had fallen down the stairs while holding my baby, and Gideon because it scared him.

    I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Oh Britany I wish so bad I could help out!! We'll be praying for you. I'm so glad your mom is there, and your ward's helping out too.

  3. gosh, i wish i lived closer so i could help!!! i have so so so much breastmilk i would give you to give to her. i would love for it to go to the other little evie! dang, just thinking of you guys and wishing there was something i could do.

  4. So sorry, that just sounds miserable. Wish we lived closer to you guys.

  5. I remember when I had to have my appendix out while pregnant with Dave, the two things that made me cry were worrying about unborn Dave in there, and when I was recuperating, having to have other people babysit Ariel a lot. I felt terrible about it, like my rebellious body was preventing me from taking care of my two littlest ones. It did pass. I got better in time and everyone was ok. And I learned a lot in those weeks about patience and endurance. Hang in there, and let yourself be taken care of so that you can heal faster. Love you.
