Our Erik turned 10 yesterday, I can’t believe our first baby turned double digits and is getting so tall. But since I can’t find the cord for my camera, I have no good birthday pic to show you right now… too bad. But I’ll just say instead that we are so proud of Erik, he is over-all just a great kid and smarter than Jason and I put together. 🙂
And he had an OK birthday. He was a little down last night because even though it was his birthday, he didn’t ‘feel’ like it was, and he wanted to go home. Poor kid. I probably should have done a better job of making it special. But thankfully our friends the Seabrooks drove up to see us last night and we had a wonderful birthday dinner and she brought cake and the kids stayed up late and we had a great time. But it’s still not the same as being home and I get that. It’s just that this is where God has us right now and we gotta learn to be content.
Thankfully our little miss Ava is doing well. She has had a good couple of days and has been very smiley and happy. She is till having issues with her temp & heart rate rising, which might all be related to her terrible heart function. But there are a few other kids in her in the hall-way that are doing the same thing, so maybe they just have a strange bug. But it’s not a bug they can find, that’s for sure! They are running the whole gamut of tests again today on Ava to try to pinpoint some type of infection, but last time everything they did this everything turned up negative so I would be surprised if they found something now.
But other than that she is very good and we are happy to be able to give a good report.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Canada Day weekend!
