Day -6

So here are the morning meds (only the ones he takes orally not the ones he gets through his line). And he gets this many in the PM plus a few throughout the day. He is awesome at taking them all. He is such a big boy. Then we make sure to do knuckles after :) Plus he has mouth care 4 times a day. We use the pink sponges to swab his mouth with a special mouth wash and then use nystatin to keep the mouth sores down. He hasn't had any mouth sores yet which is great.
This is the cool mist that he gets. Mostly we try to keep it on him when he is asleep as he doesnt really love it when he is awake. It seems to really be helping and he doesn't sound very barky any more! The test results came back and it is still the rhino virus that is causing the issues. Silly viruses - too bad they havent found a cure for the common cold!
I love the jail pictures. This is actually funny cause he had a bunch of docs and nurses come in to see him all at the same time and I tried to put the side of the crib down and he wouldn't let me. Kinda like his safety net or something. He sat in the middle of the bed and tried to ignore everyone. I am so glad that he likes his bed.

I have to have my drinks out of a big boy cup like mommy and daddy do. We have found that he likes his soda flat and a little watered down. So we leave it in the cup until it's just right for him :)You can see how much better he is feeling today though!

Look who came to visit us today! The sisters. It is so fun to see them. They made sure to wash their hands and wear masks in the room. Of course they were excited that Aiden has Disney channel and play dough to keep them entertained.

Grandpa Larry and Grandma Sharen brought the girls and of course we had to play with the Iphone. Aiden loves the Iphone. He played and danced with Grandpa Larry for awhile. They were having a great time. Aiden has about a 45 minute window after he takes his nap that he is really happy then he is like "ok - I'm done" and he gets kinda fiesty and grumpy. Luckily everyone got here when he just woke up.
Jared and Codi got to be here to visit us too and they brought us special pictures from Mara and Branden so I decided to update the picture board and put it on the blog. Branden even put a poem on it for Aiden.
Where the Sidewalk Ends - by Shel Silverstein
There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird nests from his flight,
To cool in the peppermint wind.
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.
Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
The place where the sidewalk ends.
It was so great to see everyone and Brent ended up staying with Aiden while I went with the girls and fam to the condo in Park City. It was fun even if we didn't get very much sleep. I dont think that Brent and Aiden got much sleep either as he was up until 1:30 am and then every couple hours after that. Poor daddy.

  1. I love the lashes on the mist treatment picture. Precious! Sorry we didn't stop by. Between a late flight, Dave needing to go to work and being germ infested from the nasty airports, we didn't think it was a good idea. Thanks for keeping the blog updated.
