Just eating my hands!
I'm busy playing with the toys....look at my chicken legs! (at least they are touching the floor!)
So...this is how he starts off in this jumper!
Happy to see the toys sing and light up...
Then, he takes his glasses off!
Then, he loses control of his head and falls backwards...
whooo...then, he's back forward, glasses around the next, just smiling his sweet smile!

No throwing up today....a few wretching episodes...but, nothing too bad!!!
ALL the big boys made it off to school...although...we would have ALL loved to just sleep all day! Mark came over today to work with Isaac for speech therapy...I thought it was tomorrow...I must have put it in my phone wrong (oops)....it's a good thing that we were home. He gave me TONS of ideas on how to play with Isaac to teach him things that he should be doing already.

I did talk to Dr. Mayman today. He didn't have Isaac's records with him in the office close to my house...they were at the main office. But, he told me that they would fax them to me. SO, if they don't show up in my mail tomorrow (from the hospital), then I'll call his office and ask if they'll get a copy to me. Dr. Mayman is considering putting Isaac on a new prescription (I forgot the name...sorry), but it will lower his blood pressure...in hopes of promoting more blood flow to the lungs. So, his lung profusion scan is normall 60-40, and this time it was 57-43. This is odd to the docs, because his weaker PAs are getting more blood to the right side, than the "normal" pa's on the left side...hhmmmm..maybe those normal pa's are NOT SO normal! He doesn't want to rush to add another med for him...so, he wants to take the week to think about it. He's also sending the results to Dr. Hanley (good...just so he'll know how my little man is doing).

Joe watched Isaac for a little while tonight so that I could pick up Chris from scouts...and Isaac took a BITE out of his new lenses on his glasses! Now...there's a NEW SCRATCH on those new lenses. I really don't know how we're suppose to keep them on his face and OUT of his mouth!! I wish that I could just pop some contacts in his eyes each morning.

The big boys are in bed, we're working on finishing a project for Chris (yes...just want to make sure he gets that "A")....and watching American Idol (that we recorded earlier)...life is good!

Oh no. Tell Joe the next set of lenses will come out of his parts money. Next time I'm sure he will pay a little closer attention. :)

Have a great day.

The pics are soooooo cute!
I love waking up to Isaac each morning on the blog - thank you for all your hard work in making this possible Kathy.
Also, I'm glad you got out for a few minutes ALONE, even if it was just up to scouts. We love you guys!

The pics are adorable! Elijah says he has some leg chub to send to you, Isaac. He has plenty to spare.

YAY for no throwing up! I really hope you can get your hands on those records soon. Have a good day, Rollers!

xoxoxo

Grandma Judy said...

Kat, Look at the left leg and toes....something is NOT right.
Check it out.

Samantha said...

Love, love, love the pictures...you always have such cute stories to write about the pictures! Isaac looks as adorable as ever!!!

Yay for no throwing up!!! That is a huge relief for you...I only had to deal with it for a day and a half and the numerous changes of clothes and sheets wiped me out!

Was the medicine enalapril by chance??? Micah takes that one for his blood pressure...he use to love the taste of it, but now I just shoot in in his tube...so no more flavor for him :)

I hope that you get those results soon...I am so curious!

Thank you so much for calling yesterday...Micah did have a stomach bug...so I am sure he will lose some of his chunkiness...hopefully it comes back quickly again...he also went and had a massive seizure last night...FUN!!! I am waiting to hear back from the neurologist on that one. Our boys are always full of surprises!

In all seriousness...I need to know when you are going to be in town...I think Megan is coming to Vegas this summer...I am going to bring Micah up there too and meet both of you!!! So Isaac is not allowed to act up during his cleft repair surgery so we can all plan on meeting!!!

Lots of love,
Samantha

I am so glad to hear that Isaac is feeling better. No more throwing up!!

Gracie takes enalapril too. She loves the way it tastes....opens her mouth right up. I am glad that your doctor is taking his timenwith prescribing meds.

I love the new pics - as usual! He is such a cutie!

Have you thought about making his food glasses shaped? Maybe then he would eat it? Kidding.

I think that his chicken legs are adorable!!!

Wait, if everyone is going to Vegas, I'll go and babysit. Then Teri can take everyone out for a girls night out!! :)

Then, I'll take the kids to M&M World.

Very cute chicken legs! Look at him hanging out in his jumper. His eyes look so good with his glasses on. When they are off, they go cross-eyed. I'm glad they got that figured out. I'm not sure how to keep those suckers on... then it would be no fun for you to constantly put them back on! =)

Love the photos! He looks great!

I think Isaac is starting to look just like Eli! I never noticed it before, but in the 3rd pic that is next to Eli's they look like twins!

Glad the little man is feeling better! But what in the world are you going to do to keep him from munching on those glasses???

Take care!

Hey...yeah for at least his feet touching the ground...progress...progress!

I can't imagine your frustration with the glasses...ughggh...there HAS to be something better. Maybe it's our chance to get rich!

Glad things are going so well...I still crack up about your stories...I tell you...you couldn't make up better things! I'm so glad you have this "diary" to look back on!

Sending lots of love and hugs
