In Working Order

We had a fun and relaxing Memorial Weekend at home! We took a stroll down to the Lake Palestine Palooza with Drake and Kennedy. We didn't stay very long because we didn't want the babies to get over heated, but it was fun seeing everyone and getting out in the "real world." Drake and Kennedy acted like they were pros at getting out and about. One would think they do it all the time. 

Drake and Kennedy also spent some time down on the boat dock this Memorial Weekend. I think it was good for all of us to spend some time outdoors. Sunday evening we enjoyed a fish fry with our friends, and it felt like old times...good times. 

Today Drake and Kennedy had an appointment in Tyler this morning and Drake had an appointment this afternoon in Dallas with his ENT. This morning we checked their iron levels (which were both great). Our ENT visit brought with it more good news! Drake still has laryngomalacia which causes his noisy breathing, but it has improved greatly since our last visit. Also, both of his vocal chords are moving! That's right...his paralyzed right vocal chord is now moving! He still doesn't make much sound, but the ENT believes this will improve with time. He has never had the ability to make noise his entire life, so he will need some practice and time before he is able to do this.

If Time, Patience & Practice is what he needs, that is exactly what he will get. Along with plenty of love and encouragement, of course!
