Poor Brayden!

Brayden has the worst luck with bug bits and it looks like this summer is going to be no different! He got a mosquito bite on his left ear and now it is HUGE!! Brayden I promise to be better with the bug spray!

WEEK 6!!!

We went up to PCMC for our 6th set of cast yesterday! Our day was filed with the normal good news and bad news minutes. The good news is Dr. Stotts decided that Jack's right foot needs a brace now and is done being casted!! So little Jack is loving only having a cast on his left leg! The bad news is that we are almost certain Jack has minimal feeling below his little knees and now have planned surgery for sure on his left foot! Yesterday was no different from our past visits... we get positive news and then are reminded how long the road ahead is for our "Jackers"! We are enjoying all of the positive milestones and thankful Jack is so strong for the challenges he is facing!

Here's to the past 5YEARS!!!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! Jeremy and I celebrated our 5th anniversary yesterday! I can not believe we have been married 5 YEARS!! We were able to drop our boys (yes even Jack) off with Uncle Chris and go downtown for dinner. We went to our favorite "with no kids" restaurant.. The Melting Pot and just sat and talked for hours! There is nothing better than having adult conversation while eating delicious food all night. After dinner we walked around Temple Square.... it was beautiful!

Our friend Nicole helped me make a DVD for Jeremy of the past 5 years! It was so fun to take a walk down memory lane together..... from living in Cedar City, moving to Alabama for flight school, surviving Hurricane Ivan in our hall closet, having our sweet Brayden, buying our first home, Jeremy's year deployment to Iraq, and now being blessed with our "little miracle" Jack we can not wait to see what the next 5 years has in store!!! I am thankful every day to be married to my best friend! Happy Anniversary babe..... I Love You!

Counting our Blessings!

What a day..... we were up at PCMC today with Jack! Poor little guy had a rough visit. It started with an unplanned CT scan to check for hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain). It always seems like an eternity waiting for the neurosurgeon to read the results! We are happy to report NO hydrocephalus... GO JACK! After that madness we headed upstairs for the dreaded cutting of the Achilles tendons! For those of you who have met our little guy know how strong he is and today was no exception. Jack was so brave and only shed a few tears! The procedure went great! Our visit ended with Jack getting his 5th set of casts on.

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers

on behalf of our Jack!!

WEEK 4!!

Sorry for the slow update! Jack is now almost done with week 4 but I thought I would post some pics and the doctor report from last Thursday! Things are about the same.... Jack's little feet are responding great to the casting! This week (tomorrow) Dr. Stotts will be cutting both the right and left Achilles tendon... yes you read that right OUCH!!!!! We are so sad for baby Jack but we know he will do great! The purpose for this procedure is so that when the tendons reattach, the ankle with have better mobility! What ever you say Doc?? So remember our sweet Jack in your prayers tonight!!
