The Happenings this Week

It has been a bit crazy around our house this past week.  Last weekend was the annual RTS Midwest Reunion in Wisconsin Dells.  We had a blast.  Will could not get enough of the water.  I really didn’t take that many pictures, I was too busy running around after William.


Caroline had a  great time too.  The Foley Four were at the reunion too and Ava and Caroline were joined at the hip all weekend.  They had fun going down the slides together and cruising the lazy river.  Caroline is already looking forward to seeing Ava in July.

Here is my favorite picture from the weekend…


Caden, from This is our Normal, crawled up on Josh’s lap and sat there for a little bit.  Caden went up to everyone and said “Hello, Hello”.  He is just adorable, oh and Caden’s shirt said “I am kind of a big deal”.  Let me tell you…he IS a big deal!! 

It seems that we are having some problems with random barfing this week.  Within the first hour of leaving home for the Dells, Caroline threw up.  I am guessing she had a little motion sickness.  Then the next day while at the pool she got into the hot tub and (I am guessing here) inhaled some of the chemical fumes.  She started coughing and coughing and coughing.  Coughing so hard she couldn’t catch her breath….and then…she barfed.  She is doing fine and didn’t get sick on the way home.

And then, Will was walking around in the little pool, lost his balance and went under, sucked in some water and barfed.  On the way home, within the first hour of leaving the Dells, he decided to hurl in his car seat.  Then on Monday, we were taking Caroline to church and he barfed in his car seat again.  So lets just say that the car seat and van stink!

We just happened to have an appointment with GI on Tuesday.  I asked Dr. Brady about all of the vomit as of recently and she didn’t seem worried.  We are just going to increase his meds and see what happens.  He hasn’t been sick in two days, so I think we are in the clear.  Fingers crossed.

While we were at GI, I talked to her about removing the g-tube.  She wants to see him back in June, so if we haven’t used the g-tube during the next three months then she will take the tube out at the June visit!  I am excited but nervous all at the same time. 

This post seems to be all over the place, so I will end it here.

So wonderful that he's so close to having the g-tube removed! That's great news!
