The week begins

(New update, I had to change the transformers part. I guess I'm giving away to much to people that havent seen it. Just know though that it is not the end of the movie. Not at all)

First a little update. We went and saw Transformers today. My boys have been dying since it came out. Ya know, its based off of action figures, so why do they have to put the swearing in? My boys ignored it, they were more interested in the battles. Did I ever think I would cry in Transformers? Not until my autistic son (who LOVES transformers) cried his eyes out when one of the transformers died. Didn't think I needed the tissue box for this one. Then we went to a picnic for our niece that is moving to Florida with her new hubby. He is in the Air Force so their going to a base.
Jax is slowly getting better. He is now not fussy at all unless I mess with his tube. We are still trying to get into a routine of when to do the flushes and how to best do it. We went and bought some big pads, after we learned that a towel underneath doesn't hold 500 cc's of fluid.
Oops. We'll learn as we go, just like everything else.
Again I'm posting the new blankie video. I'm going to post it on Youtube. I added some pics to it and its finally done.





Also, another reminder. Sorry if you've seen this, I know a lot of people don't check blogs on the weekend so I'm reposting. Jax fundraiser were you can win some great stuff.

Glad to hear that Jax is feeling better (I just started following your blog...)

Total random side note... next time please put a "spoiler alert" when you give away the end of movies... I am planning on seeing the Transformer movie this upcoming week...

Wahoo - I am so glad that his body is healing.
A towel can't hold 500 cc's - the things we learn! ;)
Thanks for being you - you made me smile today

Love the video and the sweetheart who is doing the fundraiser. Two of my daughters know how to do the crochet thing aroung the blankets, I know they would make some up and donate them to you if you get behind or need a few extra.

Love the video, so precious. Thats cute that your son cried when he died, I can see how that would be sad for a little boy that loves transformers. Glad Jaxon is feeling better.

That's great Mr. Jax is feeling a bit better. I had to giggle when I read the part about the towel and 500mls of flulid.. been there and done that! LOL
The video is just perfect. I have requested a blankie for Andrew. He seems to calm down when he is all wrapped up. You are such a blessing to do this for all these precious children. Thank you for all you do! :D
Please stop by and say hello :)

It would probably be easier to get the material myself and just drop off finished blankets. I live in Draper so I'm not far. Let me know the size you usually make and any special colors...prints,disney characters or what you prefer and we will get started ASAP!

Michelle said...

So glad he is feeling better and glad you got to get out and see Transformers. We are all dying to see it too...once we are healthy! :) Give your sweet boys kisses, and hopefully we'll all be healthy soon and can play!

CFMama said...

BEAUTIFUL video. What an amazing thing you do for these children. I am still praying for Jaxson and am glad he is slowly beginning to heal and is experiencing a little less discomfort.

Stephanie said...

I love the bumpersticker!

I am so happy to hear Jax is feeling better, finally some good news!The video is beautiful, you are doing something truly amazing.

Kim said...

Never seen the transformer movies....must be from having all girls. I have heard great things from all my friends that have boys. May have to break down and watch them.

So glad that Jax is feeling better and things are going a little smoother.

It is so wonderful that you make those beautiful blankets. I don't know where you find the time.
