Update on Jack

In case some of you don't know, Jack has been seeing a Pediatric Cardiologist since we found a new heart murmur at his 2 year old well-child check with his pediatrician. He is seeing Dr. David Sapire with Texas Children's Cardiology. He has since had xrays, EKG's, an echocardiogram and an MRI/MRA to look at his heart. They found a defect called a coronary artery fistula that is causing his coronary arteries to dilate. He is scheduled for a cardiac catheterization procedure this Thursday at Texas Children's Hospital, where I work. To those of you who know what's been going on, thank you for keeping us in your prayers and thoughts. I am hoping that with this procedure on Thursday that they will be able to fix the defect and Jack can just concentrate on recovering. I will be posting updates as they come. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. With love - Charlyn

Pacquiao Fight Night

Spent last Saturday night at my Tito Noning's house to watch the fight with my family. Kids had a great time running around in front of the tv while everyone was watching. It was good food, good fight, good company. Went home around midnight....thought the kids would fall asleep on the way. No such luck!! They were wide awake when I pulled in the garage. At least they slept in on Sunday!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!!

This week Kaylyn's school was celebrating the birthday of Dr. Seuss. All week they've had special activities such as "silly socks" day, "silly hat" day, and "silly sunglasses" day. Today was the actual birthday party in Dr. Seuss' honor. Students were encouraged to dress like their favorite Dr. Seuss character. I made an emergency run to Hobby Lobby last Tuesday and bought red and white felt squares. I made Kaylyn a cat in the hat costume and I thought it turned out pretty well. Here's a picture of her before heading off to school this morning.

Playing in the Laundry

On many of my nights off, we play a game of hide-and-seek, time-permitting. Brian, Kaylyn and I take turns hiding and finding each other throughout the whole house. Jack mostly helps seek. He is actually a very good seeker, must be due to his line of sight being 2 feet from the ground! One night, the kids found me hiding in a pile of laundry on the bed. They came and joined me in the pile of laundry, then didn't want to get out! Jack was so funny, he would lay back and just lounge in the clean laundry. My kids are so funny....
