The princess walks!

Jax has been all consuming the last few days. The times that he sleeps I use to get done whatever I can! He is so junky, that it's non stop suctioning except for the short times that he sleeps. If I didn't have robinol for the junk, and trazadone to help him sleep, I'd be nuts!

We saw his new ped yesterday who did a trach aspirate and swabbed his nasty g-tube site. She was very nice, and she seemed like someone I could talk easily too. The one thing I didn't like, that I'll have to talk to her about, is she brushed off my concerns onto other doctors. I feel like my ped should know everything about Jax, so if another doctor has questions, there is one person that can answer everything about him. So the fact that she didn't really want to hear my concerns, and told me she could give me specialists names to call, didn't sit well with me. I was thinking she could write an order for a GJ button so we could get rid of this stupid tube. But she just told me she could give me GI doctors names. Grrr. I left feeling overwhelmed that I had tons of new doctors to find by myself.

Other bad news, Ray's credit is still too low for a home loan. We need to pull his reports and see what is and isn't showing on there. I need to decide if I want to give in and rent for a few months, which would be super expensive. But I'm tired of only have a couple weeks of clothes, and living out of my suitcase. I want my own place!

So for some good to this post, if you haven't already skipped the other crap! Look at what our princess is doing now!


Don't you love the bare belly and bedhead? Looking good baby!
You can't tell at all that this girl loves to show off, making sure everyone claps for her after her accomplishments!
Any day now, she'll be walking! Which is good and bad news for this momma!
