Teagan is now eight months old as of the 10th. He had lots of celebrating over the weekend as Ryan and I were out of town and G-ma Dee, Kimmy & Big G took really good care of him and Mason. Brookie brought Teagie a cute new heart outfit and Avery made a fun card that T loved to crumple! Not much new to report, T is about the same with his eating. Our speech Therapist thinks he is improving, just slowly, he will allow apples, oranges and a few other foods to touch his lips. He wiggles all over and rolls to both sides, just not over to his tummy. He giggles a lot more and I think his voice is not sounding so raspy. He looks good and is doing as well as we could hope for. We hear of others with HLHS returning to our Heavenly Father and are just grateful he is here and happy, G-tube and all! We also heard of one of Ryan's high school friends who just lost their baby to a heart condition, may they feel the comforter at this time.
Like I said Ryan and I got away for the weekend and went down to Mesquite. It was wonderful to get away and so nice to concentrate on each other after being so preoccupied for the last several months. We relaxed and ate yummy food and shopped and had spa treatments, it was wonderful. We left Mason a few time with my Mom for weekend get aways at T's age and it was fine leaving him, I knew he was in good hands and I usually didn't even call. But leaving Teagan was a whole nother story, I cried leaving the driveway and I called enough that my Mom finally said, "I promise we will call if there is a problem". I knew I left him in the greatest hands and with Kim flying in to help (side note, who does that, fly in to tend their great-nephews, but Kim is amazing and I was so thankful to her, I know it was easier on my Mom having her here.) so I really had no need to worry. We were mostly scared that his G-tube would come out and I haven't even had to put that back in yet, knock on wood. Long story short, we had a great time, the boys were spoiled and G-ma Dee was wiped out. So it just been me and the boys hanging out recovering from our busy weekend. We do have to get blood work done tomorrow for our appt. with Immunology next Thurs. so hopefully I'll have an update then.
P.S. The reason it's Wednesday and not Monday that I'm updating this is because I finally got around to reading Breaking Dawn on our drive down and I haven't put it down since and I finish it this morning! Now I can get back to my Life, just in time for the movie:)
P.S.S. No picture because Mason spilled pop on my camera.
