The long month of October!

Well, as many of you know our son Cavan has had a long battle this month. It started out as a stomach virus on October 1st, but by the 7th he had a ruptured apendex. So, after 6 days in the hospital he was sent home. He never did get better, always batteling a low grade fever. So after 10 days we went back to the Dr, and back to the hospital. He had not one, but 3 abcesses in his gut. We have spent another 5 days in the hospital and gotten a PICC line. But we are home now and he is doing great! We have at least 6 more days of at home IV antibotics which take 2.5 hours a day, but his appitate has come back in full force!
Also we went to my brother, Ian's wedding. What a wonderful time that was. Not only did we go to the beach for the weekend, but we got to spend time with our family from all over the US. My parents were in from Hawaii, my baby broter and his wife and daughter were in from Ohio, Marla and Bill from Arkansas and all my "new" family too.
It was wonderful.

Our Son Cavan

Well, this week has been a long one. Last week our youngest son Cavan had his appendix rupture and emergency surgery. Poor baby. Than he spent the next 5 days in the hospital. We were lucky enough to end up at Dell Children's Center in Austin,
TX. What wonderful people there. They really make an effort to keep your kid happy. And we all know, if you kids is happy, you are happy.
We are home now and he is walking less and less like a little old man and more like himself! Yeah! He even said he thinks he wants to go back to school tomorrow. He has been out for 2 weeks.
