Hello all of my good bloggy friends. I just wanted to hop on here and give you a quick update.
Life has been really good this summer. Then June came. haha We had a lot of rain come down earlier this month and it ended up flooding the shopping strip that one of the salons are in. We were down for a day but that is lucky considering some business are still closed.
Carson has been doing really well without the feeding tube. We thought we would pull the tube and see if we can get him to eat orally BEFORE doing the permanent G tube. His asthma seems to be under control for the first time since April/May. But this week he has been running high fevers and throwing up. I took him to the doctor and he probably has strep so he is on a Z pack for 5 days.
Cody was at soccer camp Thursday and said that when he went to sprint he felt something pop in his hip. He has a fracture in his hip and the bone has pulled away from his muscle. So he will need to stay on crutches for 2 weeks and then put some weight on it after that. He has a doctor appt in 3 weeks to see if he needs physical therapy or worse case.....surgery.
Then if that wasn't enough, my mom called and said they took my dad to the hospital. He was later transferred to another hospital and is currently awaiting to have bipass surgery. He had a mild heart attack and has at least 3 areas where his blood isn't flowing correctly. So I have spent a lot of time at the hospital over the last few days.
Coltan, well so far so good! He has helped me in the middle of the night when I'm up with Carson and helped me today with the boys so that I could leave and spend time with my dad at the hospital. I'm so proud of him for stepping up and being responsible in a time of need.
If you could keep my family in your thoughts and prayers that would be sooooo wonderful.
I will hopefully have more info tomorrow on my dad. They haven't found a surgeon until Monday so he is in ICU and has a nurse with him 24/7 until then.
