Phoenix isn't as hot as they say it is

Well I just picked Moni up at the airport here in Phoenix. Her ankles are the size of a small child's head. It is pretty funny. We are hanging out in the apartment trying to get up the energy to go explore Phoenix. Moni found out that the pain in her right ribs was not a baby foot, but a healthy, bouncy baby gallstone. Doc says there is not much you can do for gallstones when you are pregnant except for a few shots of tequila. Just kidding, she just has to be a big girl about it. Her labs look good, but she is a little anemic, which we will ask Dr. Elliot about at our first appointment with him on Tuesday. We just want to thank everyone again for your support and generosity throughout this exciting adventure. Katie...so you know the next update may be after our appointment on September 11, but that doesn't mean we don't check it everyday. PLEASE....give us something to do for twenty minutes each day. We love all and miss all.

We were happy to hear that Moni made it safely today. Sorry about her ankles, I'm sure that hurts on top of the gall stone. Be careful Moni. Enjoy Phoenix. Love you Both.

Yay for your safe travels! I prayed to St. Gulliver for the both of you. Miss you so much - please let us know if you need anything taken care of back here. Love you more than gallstones love to pretend they are baby feet!!!

Monica,
Glad to hear you arrived safely. Hope everything is living up to what you expected in regards to the hospital you will be frequenting. Is there anything we can send you? Books, puzzles? Please let us know. If you ever get a hankering for a great burger...go to IN and Out burgers. They are the best , all they do is burgers. You are in our thoughts and prayers and you are definetly missed.

Hi Guys,

****GO BRONCOS*****

You have both been in our thoughts and prayers all summer. I'm so glad things are going so well for all of you. It has been a crazy summer looking for a house and going back and forth between Missouri and Colorado... The kids are both in schools they really like, and I'm getting a little better at decoding where the movers packed things....ie MBR shoes really means master bedroom DVD player...It has been wonderful being so close to family again...
What a game yesterday!! Shannahan gets the MVP!!! Troy is hoping to get to see Denver at Mile High this year. It's nice living in Bronco country again. The Chief's fans could get a little old on game days!!!!!

You will all continue to be in our thoughts and prayers...(Billy and I certainly know the power of Selenke Prayer)
Much Love
