Random Facts

I'm long overdue for an update, I know, but I don't think it's going to happen tonight. I did have a plethora of fun facts to throw your way though, so here goes:

The boys' 1st Halloween party is tomorrow.
The boys both have colds.
They will miss their aforementioned 1st Halloween party.
Dax had a sleep study in September.
The sleep study showed mild obstructive apnea.
The doctor started Dax on Singulair.
Dax DOES NOT DO WELL on Singulair.
A subsequent xray of his adenoids showed marked enlargement, almost obstructing the entire airway.
Dax has a Flonase nasal spray each day now.
He LOVES it.
He signs "more eat" when it's done.
He now wants to stick all his meds up his nose.
Ty loves taking meds now, since his big brother takes lots of meds.
Ty gives himself "breathing treatments."
They calm him down.
Ty likes to pick up Dax's syringes and suck on them.
Ty now also sticks the syringes up his nose.
We've begun a mission to fatten Dax up.
We're giving him olive oil via tube everyday now.
It's really helped his pooping.
There are 120 calories in a TBSP of olive oil.
I previously thought olive oil was healthy.
Next time I'll ix-nay the vinaigrette.
Ty really wants olive oil, too.
Ty REALLY doesn't need the extra calories.
Monday will be their last day of school.
They both love it and are doing great, but no Synagis this year.
Kids are little germ-mongers.
I adore Ty's curls.
He's developed a "poof" in the back that was completely unmanageable.
Until yesterday.
I found the solution in the ethnic hair care section.
It also works on blondes ;)
Dax knows his colors now.
The boys haven't slept well since they've been sick.
I put TyTy in the bed with me last night and cuddled.
I LOVE cuddling with that child.
He's such a warm little teddy bear.
Cuddling with Dax now is a lot like cuddling a bony little worm.
With feet.
In my ribs.
And a butt in my face.
All in all, everyone's well.
I promise a better update soon!
And please keep praying for our friends!

More prayer requests...

Hi guys. Quick post this morning with a few more prayer requests...

Please remember John Adam in your prayers. He was in a car accident Sunday morning and is currently paralyzed from the waist down. Please pray for healing and patience and strength and faith. He and his wife just celebrated their son's first birthday, and they have another child due very soon.

Please remember the family and friends of Kelley in your prayers. We lost Kelley from a car accident last weekend, and, although I have been working on a blog post about him I haven't quite figured that one out yet.

Please also say a few prayers for Braden. Braden's a special preemie friend who is admitting to Vandy today to have his trach removed :) He will likely remain inpatient for a few weeks as he recovers. Please pray for a speedy recvery for Braden as well as for his family as they juggle hospital time with their toddler and take care of their newborn.

And, of course, please continue to keep baby Bella in your prayers. She needs them now as much as ever!

Thanks again, as always!

Needing prayers...

Please, please remember Baby Bella and her family in your prayers! Bella has had to go back on the vent and the doctors and parents will soon be making some big decisions. The next few days are crucial. Please pray for Bella's heart and lungs, for guidance for the doctors and nurses, and for strength and peace for her parents.

As always, thanks so much.
