I think that I see the light

It has been the LONGEST week and a half of my life but I think that we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Poor Jack has been through so much! We ended up spending more time in the hospital than originally thought and even had an emergency room visit.
He is now on a different antibiotic and a higher dose of pain medications so I think that we have made it passed the worst of it.
Thank you to everyone for your kind emails and prayers! I love you bloggerville!!!

Jacks big day!

Tomorrow is a huge day for Jackson! The poor little man has to have a pretty big surgery. We went to his ENT appointment on Tuesday thinking that they were going to schedule his surgery to put tubes in his ears sometime in July, but we were shocked to find out that he has to have his surgery THIS Thursday. Not only does he have to have tubes put in his ears but he also has to have his tonsils and adenoids removed and his tongue clipped. When the doctor looked in his mouth she was very surprised by how large his tonsils were, this came as a surprise to us too! We really had no idea how sick he is!
We arrive at St. Lukes downtown at 8:30 am and his surgery is scheduled for 10:35. After his surgery they will move him into his room where we will stay at least one night. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as this is a big surgery for him. Those of you who know him know that he does not do well with change or hospitals. He is a very sensitive little man who likes everything “just so”.
Feel free to give me a call on my cell to check up on him. I will hopefully be able to update this blog during his stay.
I am just not looking foreword to the second that they take him away for surgery, for some reason I am having a hard time with that thought. Ahh… I am off to try and get some sleep as I suspect that tomorrow will be a very long day.

June is here!

Wahoo, June is here and oh boy has it been busy! We started out the month (well the end of the month!!) with a wonderful visit from Scotts parents. It was a short but fun visit. It was the first time that they have seen the baby so we were very excited to show him off. After they left I had my first dog show of the year and did very well. I was afraid that Bailey and I were too rusty to compete for a new title but not only did we do well, we placed 3rd twice and 4th once. It is hard to tell in the picture but it was very cold and rainy outside and my shoes were soaking wet.
Scotts birthday was the 2nd and I made him a cake from scratch. No that is not a typo, you are not reading someone else’s blog, I really did make a cake from scratch. It turned out super yummy and Scott loved it . He better, it was very hard to make. Back to the bakery for me for the next birthdays!!
My team pretty girlfriends and I went out for a big night, the Sex and the City movie premiere. A limo ( the driver looks like Rod Stewart and is the brother to Kevin Spacey) picked us up. It was AWESOME!! He took us back to Brits house for take out and Cosmos and then dropped us off at the movie. It truly was one of the most fun nights of my life!!
The boys are doing well. Jack is getting taller and Alex is almost sitting up, they finally are interacting with each other and it just melts my heart. They both change so much everyday!
