No Summer Break from Hospitals :(

Well, we almost made it two months. Then we had 2 back to back trips to the ER. Blake always keeps us on our toes, that is for sure! Two weeks ago on Thursday his G-tube started leaking (of course it was at 11:00PM just when we were ready for bed) and so I had to take him in to make sure that the placement was still good via x-ray. It was very interesting to me that it was so light out when we started our drive back home at 5:30 in the morning. Who knew? The second trip happened last Wednesday morning when he just kept getting sick to his stomach over and over (to keep it clean!), normally this would of course be worrysome, frustrating, and just plain gross, but Blake does not do normal. He can't get it all the way up and out so he ends up caughing and crying and choking and turning blue so we had to get him to the ER quick for oxygen, antibiotics, and another xray to make sure that his lungs were ok. ahhhhhhhhhhh. To add to the drama, Bryan was out of town for some training in Chicago so he had to take a flight back in the middle of the night to come and rescue us. THANKS AGAIN BABY! We still are not sure what exactly triggered the episodes - food intolerance, minor ear infection, teething - but the combination sure did it, poor guy. Luckily we were able to bring him home Saturday afternoon and he is doing SO MUCH better. We also have some awesome friends and ward members who stopped by to visit and bring us meals - thanks a ton to everyone!!

We are so glad that he is doing better! I hate hospitals! and I especially hate taking your kids there...Are you guys coming to the Manning Reunion in July?

Hi, I was just stopping by to see how you guys have been adjusting to your new area. Sorry to hear about all the hospital visits; sounds like a busy few weeks. But it sounds like it hasn't taken long for you to feel setteled in your ward and have some good supporters! Hope you have some good nights of rest ahead.

Poor little guy! You guys are awesome. Keep hanging in there. We miss you a ton. Do you have any plans to visit Utah anytime soon? I told Dave a few days ago that the next time you come we HAVE to just take off and do something fun for a few hours. Miss ya! Love ya! P.S. Dottie is not completely out of the woods but is vertical now and went back to work on Monday.
