Pics of Nate Reading with Ms. Stephanie and Sleeping Soundly with His Favorite Puppy

Pictures of Owen in His New Chair and He's Smiling!

We love this chair! Of course, yesterday on the news, the top story was that this chair has been recalled! But, we will never leave him unattended while sitting in it. We will use it only for a little bit at a time and when he is sitting up on his own, there won't be a need for it. I guess some kids have fallen backwards out of it and had skull fractures. I just don't see how this can happen if a parent is right there with the child!

Nate is doing better! We stopped the Tobramycin and we can see a dramatic difference. He still has some slight wheezing and a low grade fever. We will find out the culture results probably early next week and hopefully nothing will show up. Then we will know for sure that he was having a reaction to the medicine.

Nate's power chair is in the works! FINALLY! Permobil is getting it together and we hope it will be delivered within the next couple of weeks. It has been sooooo long since he's had his chair! This one will have a vent tray, so he will be able to have his bi-pap on, which means he can drive at any time. And, the electronics on his new chair should be more suited to his needs and easier for him to drive. I can't wait!

Owen's 2 month check up went really well. He's 15 pounds 9 ounces!!!! 23 and 3/4 inches long!!! He got four shots and didn't have that bad of a reaction. Slept a little more and that's about it. We will go back when he's four months old. Hopefully, no one will be seeing the dr. any time soon and we will all stay well during the winter months!

More Pictures of Owen

We'll get some pics of Nathan soon also. He hasn't been feeling well this last week. We started the Tobramyacin again and he had another reaction - desatting, thick secretions, and overall he's just not the same. So we stopped it yesterday and we've already seen some improvement. He's been running a fever some also, but we hope this is due to teething. Trey took a culture in to be tested to make sure there is no infection.
We received the Echo results and his heart is NORMAL! Good news!
Not much else going on, just hanging around the house. Owen goes in for his two month check up today. Hopefully, he'll get a good report. We know he's gained a lot of weight, that's for sure! He's a big boy! And HE'S SMILING! It's too cute! Haven't been able to really catch it on camera, but hopefully we will soon.
Please keep Nathan in your prayers, as we hope he is not coming down with something.
Thanks for checking in.
