Please pray for me....and video posted!! UPDATE BELOW!!

I have heading off to the doctors office. I cant seem to get my blood pressure to go down. I have other symptoms that are leading me to believe something is wrong as well so the doctor has asked me to come in. PLEASE PRAY that he does not hospitalize me like they did after Skyler. Please pray that this is something that can be managed at home...I really don't want to go to the hospital and I am very very upset about the prospect of that and I know it is just making things worse.

I just figured out the video and uploaded it. Please give it time to process if it isn't working. You can look me up on youtube at lovmykids333.



Short update. My blood pressure was really high at 175/101. Not good at all. I did get to come home but not before going to the hospital to get some blood work done so that we could see if my kidneys are working properly. Ugggg.....my b/p medication was upped and so hopefully with some rest...and a lot of prayer...I will start getting better.

I don't even have words right now.

I Love - Love the video. Thanks for sharing.

I hope and pray the Dr. can bring you some relief and you will be back home after the appt.

Oh how sweet!! That picture of Ben holding Ty and Rebekah smiling over his shoulder gave me chills.

Tyrus- your life has just begun, and look how many people LOVE you so much!!!

What a blessed baby!

And Rebekah- I will be praying for your health!

Darcy said...

Rebekah, I'm praying for your health and YOU ROCK! That is a beautiful video tribute to the love you have for Ty. He's a lucky guy to have you and Rebekah and Ben in his life. Wow.

Such a beautiful video, but now I'm sitting here all teary.
I know I'm a stranger, that we've never really met, but all I thought when I was watching that was:
I love you.
And my heart goes out to you.
I pray everything is alright.

That is a great video and something I am sure he will always treasure! With the open adoption and R&B's love I am sure he will know what an amazing person you are and how hard this was for you. I hope you are feeling better, prayers going up that you can figure out what is going on and heal at home.

Oh I am crying like a big baby! Just beautiful!

Oh my goodness.....that was amazing! Thank you for sharing such an amazing video with us. I may not know you and probably will never get to meet you, but I have to tell you that I think you are one strong person. I am a single mom to a 3 year old. It is a challenge every day and some days I ask myself how I am going to keep going, but we always just seem to make it thru. As I was watching this my son looked over at me and said "Mama no cry". I just hugged him and kept telling him I loved him, I guess that is what gets us thru our rough moments.
You have made a very "tough" situation into one amazing life for R and B and Baby Ty. You are one remarkable woman. Ty is so very lucky to have all of you in his life and he will never be missing out on love.
I am praying that you will be okay and your trip to the hospital will be just a visit. I am praying you don't have to stay there and can return back home to where you are comfortable.

Rebekah,
This adoptive mom is in tears! This is so beautiful...and the song!! Oh my!! so fitting!

This will be such a special treasure for Ty! How I wish my children's bmom's had done something like this. Both of their situations were so different than yours though.....

Blessings to you!!!
Love!

You are amazing...the video is amazing...and your love for Ty is amazing. He will always know...

Your video is simply beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it! And I will most certainly pray that your BP comes down and that you are feeling better soon.

What a beautiful video. It will be such a treasure.

Praying for your health.

Krystal said...

The video is beautiful! I've been reading your blog for a while and praying for you. And I will continue to.
You are an incredibly strong woman and you did a wonderful thing for Ty.
((((hugs))))

Rebekah:
This video is priceless! When Ty is old enough, and gets to view this, he will know what an AWESOME, compassionate, responsible, and wise mom you are. Your bond with him will never be broken.
As a child that was adopted I wish my birth parents would have done something like this. Instead I got a box of paperwork to read, trust me, it wasn't fun, nor did it answer any of my questions regarding why they put me up for adoption. I would suggest you continue to document your journey for Ty to read one day.
I'm praying for your health.
Love,
JC

praying for you. please remember how important your health is and if you have to be in the hospital a few more days...so be it. the daughter of my very good friend had very high blood pressure after the birth of her 3rd child and it had to be managed in the hospital. you are in my prayers.

First Mom is so much better than "birthmom."

I love the video. Your photos are precious.

Kel said...

This is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It doesn't surprise me, because you and R&B's relationship is really a very special and beautiful thing. Thank you for posting such a wonderful video. And I hope your blood pressure is regulating!
