Two blogs reports in one week?

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago. After taking Carson to Occupational Therapy we went across the street to Crown Center. They had a Wizard of Oz exhibit going on and Carson really seemed to like it. They had a small display of Wizard items such as lunch boxes, shoes, X-mas ornaments, and books to name a few. They also had some hands on activities and tunnels and slides.














Well it hasn't gotten to be any smoother this week either. Saturday night around 6:40PM Coltan and Cody's grandfather peacefully left us and went to Heaven. He was surrounded by Chris and his brother, sisters, and mother. Services will be tomorrow and Wednesday. I'm not quite sure if it has really hit my boys yet and I'm hoping that they can understand. Grandpa Jerry was always at their soccer games, took them out of town this past January, and loved to teach the boys some golfing tips. I know that we have lost a few other family members but Jerry was by far the closest to my boys, so the impact of this will hit them a lot harder. I'm really sad for Chris as well. I could never imagine losing one of my parents and I know that these next few weeks/months are going to be very challenging for him.

Yesterday was Cheyenne's BIG 1 birthday. Chey is Chris and Jessica's little girl and Coltan and Cody's half sister. My mother went to Gates BBQ and bought them some food and we made a cake for her as well. That way the Hoffman family doesn't have to worry about preparing for the birthday and a funeral.
Today went kind of smooth. Carson and I did have to take a car ride and he was very upset during the whole ride. He kept asking me not to bang my car.....he is still frightened over the wreck and I hope that the more we get in the car, the more comfortable he will be.
Just like everything else in my life, this too shall pass.

They do usually do the g-tube and nissen at the same time. They didn't for Jax because they insisted he didn't need the nissen, until he choked and turned blue, duh.
There have been problems with mickey buttons lately, someone told me to email mickey, because they changed them and now everyones having problems. He went 2 years with no problems at all. if you want tell them to put an AMT mini one button in, its flatter against the stomach, a lot of people like those ones.

I'm so sorry to hear about the boys Grandpa. I knew it was coming, but it is such a reality check when it does. I will pray that the boys get thru this ok. I know how I feel about my parents and the HUGE active role that my parents play in my kids lives, and I know that it will be devestating to them if and when something ever should happen to my parents.

As for Carson...I can only imagine the fear he has. I was in a horrible accident when I was 15 and it took me months to feel comfortable in a vehicle again.

Love to you all and Happy Birthday to Chey! She is certainly a cutie pie.

Your Friend Always,

Rach

I am so sorry that the boys' grandpa died. I will I'm sure going to be facing this soon. My own mother isn't in good health and well that is another story for another time. Just know that I am praying for you and the kids. Strength is coming your way.
