weekend pictures

Here's some pics from our hope kids birthday bash on Saturday. They had skating, bounce house's, and this cool room called the blast zone. It has foam balls and you just run around shooting them at people. The boys had a blast.



Jaxson just chilled in his stroller watching his brothers. Unfortunately the camera died right before we did the cake, so we don't have pics of that.


Even with the snow, we made it on our date. Jax played with auntie Boo, and the other boys were with grandma. We went to dinner and to a really dumb movie. Everything was sold out so we saw The Fourth Kind. Its supposed to be some true story about alien abductions and supposidly has real footage. LAME movie, don't go see it.
But we had a great time and thats all that matters.

The new snowy view from our house.
Sunday I trimmed up Jax hair, his fohawk was starting to fall because it was too long. I asked daddy to help me and of course he grabs the camera instead.

Before

After.

You can see how big his face still is. I have emailed his hematologist and he still thinks Boston is a good idea. We've solved the symptoms by putting the trach in. But its obvious by the puffiness that he still doesn't have adequate blood flow in his upper body. We are going to send the MRI he had a couple of months ago to Boston because its a great picture of his veins. We want to wait a few months because he's been through a lot lately, and we want him to build up his strength before we embark on another medical adventure.

Kristin said...

Wow - you got way more snow than we did.
We just got our HopeKids tshirts this weekend. Did I tell you the reason we were accepted is because it was pre-surgery? And "once a HopeKid, always a HopeKid". So they said it was great if we still wanted to participate - it could give a new family 'hope' to see how things can turn out...

The VW's said...

Glad to hear that you had a fun weekend! I like Jaxson's haircut! I also like your shower curtain in the background...cute!

That snow does NOT look like fun at all! I can't believe that we haven't gotten any yet in Michigan! But, that's just fine by me!

I was hoping that Jax wouldn't need any more surgery, but his face does still look puffy! I hope that they are able to do something for that!

Have a great day! HUGS!!

Emily said...

I still hope and pray that Boston will have some answers for you soon. I love his new haircut! So glad you guys enjoyed your weekend! Can't wait to see you soon!

Denise said...

Oh I love the haircut. He is so cute no matter what, though. I am all for giving Jax a break from surgeries before doing anything more as long as he is stable right now. I hope he has the best birthday party ever on friday. So wish we could be there!! I can't wait to see all the great pics.

I obviously want you to come to Boston but I'm glad everyone is in favor of giving him a break first.

The party looks like a blast. I am glad that it went well. I love the pics of Jaxson. He is lookling so stylish and cute in his new hair cut and fancy sweater. Handsome little man. Hope they can figure what is causing the swelling. Sending prayers your way.

Alyson said...

I love Jaxson's haircut, he is so adorable. Glad you got a date night even if the move was lame. :-) It's nice just to get out. I hope you can get to Boston once Jaxson gets stronger.
