Crazy week

It has been a crazy week! Jasons dad has been in and out of the hospital since September and they could never figure out what was wrong. In early June he went into the hospital for emergency sx and got a lot of his intestine taken out. They told him recovery would be about a week... Over a month later he was still in the hospital because his body was not getting any better. They did another sx about 2 weeks ago and found out his intestine was all mushy and dying and there was nothing they could do about it. The family on Thursday decided to take out his breathing tubes and let him just have medication and oxygen to ease the pain and to let him pass when he was ready because the docs said he would have no quality of life if they kept him on the support. He survived the night Thursday and passed peacefully in the hospital with family at his side around 11:45 Friday. We had the viewing Monday night and the funeral on Tuesday. It has been very hard to watch just because he was only 49 years old. I wish my husbands family the best and want them to know I love them:)
On a lighter note Jason FINALLY decided on Oakleys middle name!!!! Yay!!! Her full name is going to be Oakley Kate Pedersen:) I am so excited and think Jas did a really good job on picking it out. We are getting so excited to meet her and so nervous at the same time! It is hard to believe Jas and I will have another life to look after. I went into the doc's today and I am measuring a little big, but right on track and she also informed me im border line of having preclamsia... I knew it all along! I have been swelling like crazy for a few months now and I am glad she is finally thinking it could be an issue. She just said she will keep watching me week by week and if she thinks taking Oakley early is necessary we will discuss it at that point. Only 29 more days though!!!! Yay!


  1. I am very sorry about your father-in-law Mollie, it's never easy to have a family member pass away. Good job Jason-the name is beautiful! I give you 2 weeks before you have the baby and Chris gives you 10 days!

  2. 2 weeks or 10 days! That is super soon. I think I will go 10 days late and she will come on the 24th of August... I just have a feeling:) I am impressed with Jasons middle name choice 2!

  3. Sorry to hear the sad news about your father-in-law! Its better this way! So I think ALL hairstylists get pre-eclampsia during their pregnancys! Yes, I had it too and therefore Coast was born 2 weeks early. Man I had it bad, so so swollen and UGLY! So I think it must be some of the chemicals we breathe while doing hair that causes pre-eclampsia. Someone needs to do a study on that quick!!!! Yay Oakley will be here so soon!

  4. I am so sorry you had such a rough week.. See what happens when I leave??? Man o man. I hope you guys are doing okay soon... Oakley Kate is beautiful! Can't wait to see her!
