I can't believe we are already a week into September! I am so ready for beautiful fall weather. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love the fall colors, cool mornings and of course UT football season starting =)
Sorry I have been so behind on the blog! Calee's play opens this Friday and we have been "knee deep" in rehearsals. Tonight is the first (of 3) dress rehearsals, and Calee is nervous about a 45 second costume change! It will be interesting!
Cohen is doing well, chugging right along. He is really filling out, especially his chubby cheeks! We have taken him to church the last 2 weeks, and he has done great. I am trying to get him out a little more before cold and flu season begin. I know we will have to really be careful then.
We have Vanderbilt appointments on Wednesday, with the G tube clinic and the ortho doctor. Next week we see a new specialist, a GI doctor. Our regular pediatrician wanted us to see him in regards to some slow gastric emptying issues. I don;t look forward to adding another doctor to the list, but I know its a necessary evil.
I have started to think and pray about our appointment with our ENT doctor, which will be October 5th. He will do a scope and then possibly schedule another MRI and broncoscopy. At that time, the ortho doctor will coordinate with him and do a small surgery on his foot at the same time. At least, that is the plan for now. I know that can change quickly.
My prayer is the ENT visit will show his left vocal cord is working again. This would be a huge step in the right direction!
I am going to post a silly picture of Ames and Cohen. Cohen is making a "shocked face". They are so sweet together. Cohen is completely enthralled by Ames. He smiles and laughs anytime Ames gets near him. I have taught Ames to say "You are my best friend", and he randomly walks up to Cohen and tells him during the day. Its about the sweetest think I have ever seen.
