JUST HANGING OUT


Witt went to the cardiologist on Monday and it was a great visit. It was a very long day, we got there at 1 and did not leave till sometime after 5. They ran a few labs to check some of his levels and all of them look pretty good. His B.U.N. was a little high because of his diuretics but he needs the diuretics to help with his lung function. I also talked to the nutritionist about switching Witt over to toddler formula. Since he is over a year old he needs more then just regular formula. We are trying to switch him over slowly since his stomach seems to be very sensitive. Other then Mondays visit this week has been pretty calm. I take Witt on Friday to DR. Lange just to catch up with him and form some plan to get Witt's vaccines up to date. We have not seen DR. Lange since March because of Witt's long hospital stay this summer. Austan and I are hoping to be moving back to our house this weekend or the next. It will defiantly be a bittersweet moment when the time comes but we are only going about a mile down the road. What a blessing its been to be able to stay with my parents this last year. We are very grateful that we have two sets of parents who would open there home to us anytime we need it. As soon as we get settled back in our house I will post pics of Witt's new room.

Melanie- so glad that you finally get to move back home! What a blessing that you bought a house so close to your family and that you were able to stay with them. I'm sure they'll miss the everyday things without ya'll there. I'd love to see pics of the house all new and sparkly:) Witt's a sweetheart- his smile is so contagious!
