These t-shirts were sent to us by the Butcher family. Brittney's heart transplant was in December of last year. U of M zipper club supporters!!! Oh, and those crazy football hats. Too funny!
I found Cruz like this one morning last week. Sunglasses are of course, Lindsay's given to her by nurse Megan. Cruz likes them too! ;-) Stylish, dude!
Real enthusiastic about going to her appointment! ha ha Notice the new big girl car seat??
Yesterday morning before we left for A2. One of my favorites for sure! See her top teeth coming in?
Big girl! AND the very first time wearing shoes!! Can you believe it?! Well, I can. What has she needed to wear shoes for until now?
Lindsay can finally wear fleecy pajamas! Before with her hypoplast heart, she would over heat and start to have problems. Now she can stay toasty warm while she sleeps. An actual NORMAL baby thing! WOO HOO!!
We went to the lake on Sunday and Lindsay was completely content staying indoors in the air with Aunt Carol and Uncle Jeff. It ended up getting extremely muggy and was wise to keep her in while her brothers played outside in the water. She was still dressed for the occasion and had a great time!
AHHH, nothing like a hospital background.....again! Yes, this was taken during our two night stay at hotel Mott. She was feeling much better when I took this photo and we left the next day.
The joys of a g-tube feed! ha ha No, she didn't throw up, she just thought she would take the adapter out of her g-tube and suck on it! Well, not that great with the aim!
Yesterdays clinic visit at U of M went extremely well. Dr. G's (Gajarski that is, for someone that asked me about this a while ago) actual words were, "She looks fantastic! Keep doing what you are doing because she looks fantastic!" I couldn't help but have a perma-grin after that was said!
The only other thing that we have to follow up on here in town is with the ophthalmologist. A doctor from U of m comes down to the Kalamazoo office every 2-3 months and Lindsay will see him when he is here. They are concerned with her right eye not being completely centered. Obviously it is because of the damage to her brain because of the arrest in July. They are confident that she can see out of it, but it needs work to strengthen it. She may need a patch on the left eye to try and make the right eye work as it should. The left eye is definitely compensating the work load of the right. Overall, not too shabby I would say!
Back in the groove today and took her this morning for a blood draw. Praying that all levels are good and we can keep meds right where they are.
Answering a question from a few says ago from the Catlett family from Texas: Yes, she tests positive for VRE as well. This was found in her stool way back in October and she still tests positive for it.
I also wanted to take a minute to thank all of you that prayed for the Butcher family yesterday. All of those prayers were answered because baby Luke Graham Butcher was born yesterday happy and healthy and sooooo pretty!! All 8 lbs 2 ounces and 21 inches of him! Yes, baby boys can be pretty!! ha ha Send continued prayers for Rebecca's healing after her c-section and that they all can go home soon!
