Well, guess who had his first "real" meal tonight. Orren ate a little shredded turkey some chopped carrots, apple wagon wheels and sliced cheese. He fed himself the entire meal and ate almost every bite. He washed it down with a little concord grape juice from a sippy cup he sat up to drink! Which as ya'll know has been an issue. he has reused to drink sitting up. He gave up the bottle months ago but would not drink unless he was lying down. But, tonight he sat in his booster seat at the table. So tonight was full of milestones!
Olivia spent the day with language and spelling. Fun times. HAHAHA She is piled up with her Daddy watching abc family's Princess right now. He is enjoying it so! (he is such a good sport!)
We got our pre-op phone call today and we were given all of our instructions
and list of what to bring. I will be ready to have family here soon to hold our hands. I am really lucky to be involved in some great organizations that in turn have given us GREAT support.
For those of you who do not know I serve on the board of directors for our homeowners association as President. That board has been so supportive and concerned that it has just blown me a way. The children's C.A.R Chapter members have all expressed their concern and support, Our Civitan group, several members have called. I Chair the Helena Civic association and they have all been so supportive. I cannot thank all of you enough for the phone call, meals, offers to do anything from mow our yard to sit at the hospital and of course include us in your prayers. You are all the best! So THANK YOU!
Our family and friends you are our rock and if we did not have you we would be lost & we love you.
We are ready to get this done and move forward.
Tomorrow the children and I have some errands to run and groceries to buy. So we will be out and about in the big city. We are missing and loving all of you tonight very much.
May God watch over you.
