But this is the crazyness that I had to deal with.
I think this photo also helps kick off Christmas time as the first holiday photo on the blog!
(Fair warning that probably most of the blog posts from now until the end of the year will most likely have something to do with Christmas)

We had our first night of hockey of the season last night.
This is Jordy's first year playing (that is her tiny little ice skates)
They both did great and loved it!

We don't celebrate real Halloween, but we do love fall.
We do let our girls dress up (no scary or evil costumes)
We have always told the girls Halloween is just a fun night to dress up, and go trick or treating to show off our adorable costumes...and hang out with friends at family Halloween parties (always kid friendly ones)
So....this is now one of my all time favorite photos that I have taken. It was not what I envisioned when setting it up. Abby had chosen to be red riding hood, and we thought it would be fun to put one of the dogs in there as the "big bad wolf". Kota was the best canidate (Holly sitting still???). Kota didn't really want to sit still either, she kept just trying to lick Abby. I didn't think I got one a good one, until I uploaded them onto my computer and saw this:

(definitely some important people in Minot missing here!)
We have been so blessed at all 3 of our bases to have friends we feel are like family to us
You all know who you are
You are people who love our girls almost as much as your own kids.
You are people who eat at our house when your husband is deployed.
You are people who know why we have so many Dr. appointments and what each is for.
You are people who come over just to see a freshly painted wall.
You are people who have celebrated lots of birthdays and holidays with us.
You are people who were there when our babies were born (one even saw Abby BEING born!).
You are people who held our babies in the NICU, and celebrated with us when they came home.
You are people who help us look for and bring back our dumb dogs when they run away.
You are people who know where the food/drinks are, and don't even think to ask before you raid the pantry looking for something to eat. (this is a good thing in our home!)
You are people who know way too much about me and vice versa.
You are people who have watched us move, moved away yourself, or will move away, but still know that we will see eachother again eventually.
We love you all.

Well today we saw the same Dr who requested the EEG for her. She was very surprised to find what she did too. She told me she was expecting nothing. She really thought that either her possible seizure was just some weird night time randomness, or just a one time thing, because, what were the odds that I SAW her doing it in the middle of the night????
Her test showed quite a bit of what the Dr referred to as "pre seizure activity" near the back side of her head. Meaning, that it could possibly have lead to another seizure had she stayed asleep.
You all know what Jordy's birth story is and what she went through. Her neurologist strongly agrees that her current situtation is most likely from her traumatic birth she had, and the birth injuries she experienced. She did explain to me though that baby seizures (which Jordy had) are VERY different from regular seizures. Baby seizures can come in any shape or form. Jordy had what was explained as a "tick seizure"....basically her arm/hand would just repeat the same motion over and over again. They discovered she had some blood on her brain, of which was causing the seizures.
Now because of that, her seizures have probably become more of the "regular type" like I saw a few months ago: Full body convulsions, and her eyes rolled back into her head...lasted less than a minute, and she went right back to sleep.
It terrifies me to know that she may have possibly been having seizures all along, even after she was taken off her anti seizure meds and cleared by her neurologists in Texas as a baby. Because, most likely, she is only having them in the middle of the night, while sleeping.
I would love to say how mad we are at WHMC in San Antonio...for causing her to have such a traumatic birth, and definitely some aftermath because of what she went through. We would love to blame them for what happened, because, it really was their fault...but it's hard to be upset about an incident that gave us our beautiful princess. Everything that happned was all part of God's plan for Jordy and our family. She may have been a completely different little girl had she not gone through what she did....So, it's hard to admit, but in some ways, we are grateful for what we went through. I would never wish our experience on any other child or family, but... It gave us the most perfect Jordy, and so many life lessons that had to be taught to prepare us for raising her.

They both could easily stay at the pool for 4+ hours.
