Around noon, my mom, stepdad and sister Marcea came over. We all ate lunch together and hung out. The kids played with their toys, Marcea included.
The tunnel was a huge hit with both the kids and the dog. Buster loves to run through it too. Funny. But this is my favorite picture from the holidays. Marcea and Caroline in the tunnel together.

This is Caroline and her Bitty Baby doll, they had matching dresses and looked absolutely adorable together.
Mikkah (my nephew) peeling an orange. There were cookies and goodies all over the place and he chose to eat an orange! Go figure!
Here is Mikkah showing off his new SpiderMan scooter. He kept looking at the front plate on it and saying "It's SpiderMan!! So funny! He is also wearing his new backpack that we gave him for his leapster game, he loved it!

Will was still vomiting. I took him to GI on Friday where they did an upper GI. The test showed reflux, so we have increased his reflux meds and went light on the feeds for 24 hours. He has taken 2 normal feeds today and has kept them down. I hope that we are out of the woods. I am not holding my breath.

He was released from the hospital yesterday evening at about 6pm. He is doing well and keeping his feeds down. He is glad to be home and able to sleep in his own bed last night. So yeah for Will!! We are glad to be out of the hospital!!!!!!!
But when it is bad it is bad...
I woke up through the night vomiting! I have come down with the flu! Just what I need!! I am feeling pretty crummy but hopefully it is just a 24 hour bug!

They are keeping him on IV fluids until they are sure that he can keep is pediasure bolus (the tube feedings that we use the pump) down. He is on a clear liquids diet until tomorrow when they will start to slowly give him his pediasure.
We are hoping that he will get to come home tomorrow, but we are not sure. He is being a good boy and handling everything every well. He is getting bored and wants to be up moving around which is hard with an IV.
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes! I will continue to keep you updated.

Caroline LOVES this show on PBS in the afternoons. I think it is pretty cute too. There is a song that Sid and his Mom sing on the way to school, it goes "I love my Mom, my Mom is cool. But now it's time for having fun at school!" Caroline and I sing it on the way to school every morning.
Today Caroline came down stairs for supper and I asked her what Sid was about today. She told me that it was about sound and sound waves. Cool. She told me that sound travels in waves and that is how it goes into our ears so that we can hear it. Very cool.
Then she told me about another Sid show that she had seen a few days ago. She told me that when we smell something the "mala tools" go into your nose and you smell them but you can't see, taste or hear "mala tools". Only smell.
I gave her a funny look, I am sure. I had no idea what "mala tools" where. Mala tools, mala tools....ahhhhh, molecules!! I love her!!
But I am so impressed by this show!! I mean molecules at 5 years old!! I love it! And she has learned other stuff as well. Like charts, nutrition, exercise, senses, estimation and inventions. Kids usually don't like science in school but maybe this show will help kids to realize that science is COOL!!
