One less stop to make while grocery shopping - blood pressure was 117/79 at my six-week appointment! Officially fully recovered from the pregnancy-induced hypertension!

I know I am a crappy blogger these days, but I have got to pop in really quickly and tell you that my little girl, you know, the one who was born at 28 week and weighed less than a pound and had a life expectancy of 2-3 MINUTES, today played in a soccer game AND competed in a horse show. Take that, prematurity! Granted, she is a 4-year-old playing soccer in the 3-year-old league and the horse show was with her therapeutic riding program for kids with special needs, but I am going to go out on a limb here and say that her quality of life has turned out to be pretty damn good. I think everyone who was/is a part of team Becca deserves a standing ovation on this one. So our dear nurses, doctors, therapists, teachers and caregivers - take a bow. John and I will take one, too - quickly, before we have to get this super kid to her next activity.
