A Very Long Day...

Today was a vent clinic day, which always begins extra early. Packing, loading, driving, meeting up with Mimi, ect...The clinic was very busy today and we were there for 4hrs! Two hours driving there, four hours at Our Children's House, and two hours driving home. That was 8hrs which did not include packing, loading, unloading, reloading...basically it was a long day, but we survived and all 3 kids did great! Drake had another wonderful report with a clear X-ray and perfect blood-work! We are thankful that his supplements have made such a difference with his numbers! Anything we can do that helps our little man is well worth it! 

Kennedy went on a fun play date to our local I-Jump! This was our first time to visit an I-Jump and we had a really great time! She was hesitant at first to join in, but eventually warmed up and had a great time! Ever since Drake's last hospital stay, she has been having some separation anxiety issues. I'm sure this will pass with a little time, but for the moment it is hard to see her shying away from things that she enjoys.  

Hayes is growing and making wonderful progress with tummy time! He is such a happy baby! The lord knew just what he has doing when he sent this sweet addition to complete our family! Our weekend night nurse has been out sick; therefore, mommy has been night nurse. We have had wonderful coverage with our full staff of nurses since Hayes was born, and I had forgotten what it was like to wear my mommy hat all day and my "mommy nurse" hat all night. Thankfully, Lisa came in early to help out and Lindsey even picked up a night shift so that I could get some sleep before our long day in Dallas. I count my blessings every day for our "village" that help to build, mold, and care for our children. 

The happiest boy ever!

Another great visit at our dentist, Dr Boozer! 

Their staff does a wonderful job with Drake! I highly recommend them for all children! 

A little I-Jump fun!

  3. So glad to see positive updates on all the children. I was asked today to pray for another wee one, Owen. He is 8 months old today and has never left the hospital. His mom blogs on facebook on Updates for Owen.Perhaps,you can say a prayer for Owen ir send his mom a word of encouragement. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.

    1. Thank you for letting me know! We will definitely pray for Owen and I will reach out to his mom.

  4. What a packed and long day! Eight hours not including packing, loading, and unloading, which alone can take hours, make for a very long day. But I am glad you all made it through successfully! It is always very important to get the kids to the clinic, just a shame how much time it took. Looks like it went well!
