6 years ago tomorrow

Tomorrow is set to be a wonderful yet busy day so I wanted to post this today:
January, 6 years ago, I was extremely sick. I had my cousins Nino and Jesselee over with all the family for homemade manicotti and a family day!
I was so very ill. Everyone was eating and I was in the bathroom all day long. It was so bad that I finally decided I needed to go to the emergency room. After hours in the hospital with John being angry at me because he was missing his ice fishing get together the doctor walked into my room and gleefully said “Congratulations on your babies!”
Ummmmm, WHAT?!? I think you have the wrong room!
It turns out I was pregnant with the craziest experiences of my life… TWINS!
It has been 6 years and the road has been paved with so much heartbreak but that has always been put to dust by the love we all have!
I couldn’t have done the past 6 years without you Sam and Andrew! We will always be the original Trio! It will always be us 3 that kept this family intact. You were not just my kids you were the best people in my life. Yes you both drove me bonkers but you were always my home! You both will always remain my home! Thank you both so much for driving me crazy and paving the way for Jordan, Hannah, and Johnny!
On August 25th, after weeks of contractions they did an emergency C-Section and at 10:04 and 10:06 pm I gave birth to Hannah Grace weighing 6 pounds 4 ounces and John Peter Jr weighing 4 pounds 6 ounces.
It was several days before I got to hold either of them and for many days we wouldn’t speak of the looming feeling Johnny wasn’t leaving the hospital. I was wrecked for a long time.
I never prayed for twins… I pray for them every day now! They were a part of my blessings in life! They help make me strong. They keep my heart beating! They keep me young because I have to chase them constantly! LOL
Thank you for being my 2 of the most awesome blessings I could have never known I always wanted!
Happy birthday tomorrow my favorite twinkies! xoxoxoxox
