Well it turned out to be a very long and busy week. Coltan and Cody both had their usual soccer practices. We did some homework and had some reading time. Nothing to exciting or new with them. We did rent a movie last night called the Iron Man. It was okay. I have heard a lot of good feedback so I was a little disappointed. Guess I'm more into more girlie movies.
As for Carson, well we only had 4 doctor appointments this week. I already posted on his ENT appointment and his plastic surgeon. Thursday we went and had our pre admission testing. The anesthesiologist is a little concerned with Carson going under. I knew on his last surgery that they had a little problems with him after taking the breathing tube out but she made it sound like it was a bigger deal than they told me. So that didn't make me very happy at all to think the doctor withheld pertinent information from me. I understand that maybe she didn't want to worry me more or think that maybe I wouldn't understand completely, but bottom line, she withheld info from me. So anyways, she said he will have a 10% chance of staying on the vent and going to ICU but because he did so well last time, I'm going to stay positive. Dr. M did want to make sure that I knew that we would be staying overnight for observations.
After that appointment we ran to our OT appointment and as usual Carson had a ball. We worked on the swings again and he showed her how he can make a police car now. My mom bought him an etch and sketch and this boy loves it. Nancy had been working with Carson on drawing straight lines, circles, and the letters X and T. So we have been using this at home and practicing a lot. He is always telling me to draw him a car and a couple of days ago he drew a straight line and the two circles for the tires. So Nancy was really impressed. Carson has also learned all of his shapes including diamond, heart, star, oval, rectangle, square, and circle. He officially knows all colors as well including white, black, grey, pink, and brown. We are also practicing all the colors in Spanish. He is so smart.
Now for my cute story, so today I told him that he needed a nap. He hasn't been sleeping well at all and he said NO. So I took him to my bed and laid down with him and told him to go night-night. Carson said No night-night. I asked him why and he said because. I said because why? He said No night, day day. OMG he is getting to smart for his own good. I cannot believe the things that come out of his mouth.
Coltan and Cody went with their dad until Sunday afternoon and Carson and I are going to hit a Christmas shop in Grandview this weekend. My mom went there last week and said they have everything and all at great prices. I'm not sure if I ever told anyone but a couple of years ago my sump pump went out and it ended up flooding my whole basement. My basement is finished and includes a closet, rec room, Coltan's room, a full bath, and a crawl space. Well now I'm slowly replacing everything and I only have until May to turn everything into my insurance for reimbursement. So I'm going to go there and pick up some cute things to decorate my house.
Until next time.....
