Tomorrow's the big day!

First things first. Isn't this little man the cutest? He is now on the blankie blog. And if your waiting for a rememberance blankie, once again its taking time. This time just having a hard time getting a hold of the lady that embroiders for me. But I promise there coming.





I can't believe tomorrow Jaxson will be 4! I think this is the happiest birthday we've celebrated so far. He's happy, and the healthiest he's been in a year!
Its so nice to have happy posts instead of depressing posts. I think if we can avoid respitory illness's, this will be a good winter. No other things need to be addressed at this time. I talked to Boston yesterday. I can't wait to go out there, they were super nice on the phone. And I think I will be blown away by the difference in care at Boston Childrens and here.
Since getting rid of that cough, he's been sleeping through the night. And because of a good nights sleep, he's much more active and alert. Seizures seem to be down a little too. I'm only seeing maybe 30-50 instead of hundreds. He's working a lot harder during therapy, and not pooping out after only a few minutes. I'm amazed. I'm amazed at what the trach has done for him. I'm amazed to see him looking so good. I'm amazed that we made it to 4, and that he will be so healthy while turning 4! He was going downhill so fast. His oxygen needs out of control, and I know if we hadn't moved the trach up we would have ended up back on the vent until he got it done. We had a BBQ, tons of friends came over. Denise came from California to meet Jax. And you know who she met? A little boy that couldn't even keep his eyes open. He vomited right through his nissen all over himself for all his friends to witness. He looked groggy and sick. Denise, we are so coming back over to play so you can see him now.
I'm happy that we are starting the adoption process. I feel that my little girl is out there waiting fo us to bring her home. I can't wait to hold her.
I'm happy to start planning our next trip to SoCal. So SoCal friends, be ready for us. Hopefully in the spring we will be coming back out to play. We are looking into season passes to Disneyland. Wahoo!
Did you get the point that I'm happy?
Yeah, I'm happy!!
I'll see everyone tomorrow night!
(Now if I could just keep my house clean, and figure out how to keep the boys room from looking like a bomb went off in there. Oh well, one thing at a time I guess.)
