I’m sorry for my absence on the blog. It has been incredibly busy the past few weeks. I am counting down until the end of April when I will be done with my Master’s Degree! I’m looking forward to enjoying the summer with my boys!
Jack is doing okay, he’s had two overnight hospital stays in the last month, both for different reasons. He continues to plug along and is getting very fast with his crawling. He really likes to make big brother mad by turning off the XBox while he’s playing a game or watching Netflix. He’s so ornery, when I tell him no, he shakes his head. If I move him away to distract him, he crawls right back. I’m thankful he’s healthy enough to be ornery!
Jack will have surgery on Friday, March 7, to have tubes placed in his ears. He has had fluid in his ears since birth that is affecting his hearing. But, up until this point, his ear canals were too small. He has also had 3 ear infections in the last month, so next Friday can’t come soon enough! We saw Dr. Rink, the urologist yesterday. Jack will need a second surgery to complete the repair of his hypospadias. However, Dr. Rink is in no hurry to do this. We will most likely wait until a year from now. He wants to give Jack time to grow and develop before we put him through another surgery. It was such a beautiful day to be out and about. Jack loved being outside in the stroller!
As most of you know, we have started a team for the Lafayette March for Babies Walk on April 28. Our team, “Jack’s Pack”, is the leading team for the amount of money raised. Thank you to all who have contributed. If you would like to contribute, or would like to walk with us, you can register here.
The March of Dime’s Mission is to help promote healthy full term pregnancies. They also provide money for research to help treat premature and sick babies. Through their research and education, they help moms and babies worldwide. Did you know 1 in 8 babies in the United States is born too early?
In addition, we are selling T-Shirts with all profits going to the March of Dimes. Many thanks to my sister, Maggi, who worked with a graphic designer on the design. They turned out amazing! If you are interested in purchasing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sizes available are Adult S-XXXL and Youth S-L. Orders are due by March 27. We will have the shirts by mid April.
That’s all for now, I must get back to grading! Have a great rest of the week!
