OK...I know you're TIRED of hearing about my vacation...
BUT...I don't care.
I took a deep breath....called the rental company..
and asked if they would take a HUGE amount off the price of my first
choice house..
and they did...
HERE...is the beach house we're staying at...
the ENTIRE house...

yep...still ocean front.
I can't wait!!!
I'm ready to fly out today!


Not really...but, we've been washing and packing all day. I hope to tie up a few loose ends tomorrow...pick up a few meds for Isaac, his O2 gets delivered...and we fly out early Tuesday morning!

Isaac was playing with the phone on Saturday night...he presses the buttons and points to the television (thinking it's a remote). WELL, he pressed the "talk" button and I heard it dialing numbers...so, I took the phone and hung it up. THEN, the phone rang. I didn't recognize the caller id number, but answered it. "Hell0...this is Las Vegas Police Department, did someone call 911?"
"ahhh...yikes..I think my 2 year old may have. I'm so sorry."

Bad Isaac!

ok...now ready for another laugh??
How about a video of Isaac drinking Joe's diet Sprite. AND...this from the kid that doesn't drink liquids because he aspirates. hmmm...maybe we're ready for another upper gi to check on that!

Yay for Isaac!!! I'll come over with some Dr Pepper in the morning and we'll have some. :D

Now that you got the bigger house I may have to skip keeping an eye on your house here and just head to NC after all!! Watch out mom, I may show up!

Isn't it exciting to see progress?!! He's so adorable, he was definitely lovin' that Sprite!

Our little Madeline (DiGeorge, too, but her presentation is spina bifida and it's accompanying trouble rather than major heart issues)is solely g-tube, also because of aspiration, but her swallow study a few weeks ago showed a lot of improvement, so they've given the go ahead for thickened formula out of a nosy cup and baby food! It's so encouraging--I tried so hard not to worry, but I definitely didn't want her to miss out forever on one of the funnest parts of life! :)

I am so impressed with our little Isaac! His progress seems to be accelerating over the last few months. I can't wait to see him.

WOW!!!! Wow, wow, wow Kathy. What a great find on the Beach house - I swear girl . . . your bargain hunting skills and ability to negotiate is AWESOME. I know everyone is excited about this vacation. I know we are!

I'm tellin' ya... it'll be steak before you know it!!

So when should I arrive for vacation?!?! (LoL) That beach house looks wonderful... hope you all have a great time!!

Wendy said...

Kathy,

Are you kidding me?! I want to hear all about your vacation! And see lots of pictures, too! I miss the beach so much in the summer time....the Great Salt Lake just doesn't do it for me! Ha!

Isaac is too cute drinking that Sprite....I love the face he makes after he gets a sip! (Emma makes the same one.) I think you're right, another swallow study is in order!!!

Take care, and have a safe trip and a great time in NC! You guys certainly deserve this.

Lots of Love & Prayers...and kisses to Mr. Isaac,

Wendy (& Emma, too!)

I'm for sure coming in your luggage..there's room right?
Isaac is impressing me..is this his way of flirting? All the ladies on here are diggin him...tremendously. Give kisses & hugs to your other grown boys in case I don't see ya before you go!
Have a ton of fun and as always...take a TON of pics because I already can't wait to see them. How long are you gone again? I'm already sad. I'll call you today!

That's it...I'm flying out to that beach house to stay with you guys! Just kidding, I wouldn't do that to you. It's tempting, though. It's BEAUTIFUL!! You are all going to have an amazing time!

The video is wonderful! I giggled through that whole thing. He is so darn cute, sticking out his tongue, wanting another sip desperately, like a little thirsty camel. This is such a great sign for him!!! Drinking without aspirating, wow! Way to go, Isaac!

Have a really safe and fun trip! Take lots of pics and video! Can't wait to hear all about it...xoxoxo

Lee Family said...

Congrats on getting the price lowered.

YEAH

Look at him go! I think you should look into an upper GI study. Things DO get better and maybe he can start on thickened liquids.
