The Latest

Just a few updates.  Monday was Russell's Annual Heart Cath.  Not exactly something we look forward to but a necessary evil.  Now that he is older, we don't really know what to expect from him when we go to the hospital.  He is not shy about sharing his opinion...and he absolutely refuses to be touched.  I guess he is a little too experienced being jabbed by pointy objects.  I must admit...he did fantastic. was a challenge to let anyone try to assess him or do vitals, but when he was left alone he was a very content little boy.  He never ceases to amaze.  While we were doing the hospital thing, Nicole went for an overnight visit at Grandma's; i think she had a great time.

Our schedule over the next month is kind of nuts.  Susan counted 12 medical visits between Feb 1 and Mar 15th.  This is not including trips for blood tests that are looking like they will be weekly for the next while.  Russell's trip to the hospital has messed up a few vitals so we are back to the weekly trips for blood work.  In this time, we are also trying to schedule in a few other activities including a trip to Ottawa for me and a few other odds and ends.  I mentioned March 15th because that is the date of Russell's eye surgery...oh did i forget to mention the eye surgery.  Ah yes...welcome to our insanity.

  1. Hi Donald & Susan. I was just thinking about you, and came across your blog! What eye surgery does Russell have coming up? Sara had crossed eyes, and her surgery was at the end of November 2010. So now we have check ups for her heart & eyes. It's not so bad now that we live near Edmonton now. Hope you have a great week, that's not so crazy! Karey
