9.15 kg = OVER 20 POUNDS!!!

Yeah...that is the best word to describe how Hope's weigh in went this morning. She did throwing up this time and I know everyone was thrilled about that!  Yes, my little sweetie loves to throw up on any and all medical exceptions.

Later in the day we had a Nephrology appointment.  This is to check on her kidneys...which seem to be doing what they are supposed to do.  Her bloodwork has not changed and that is great news.  We only have to do an ultrasound once a year now and that is wonderful news.  We still have to come back every 3 months to visit with the nurses and spend the day downtown, but I am happy with that plan.

In other oldest son, Jerry, turned 6 on 11/11/11.  He is getting so big and is such a great kid.  We went to his parent teacher conference last night and his teacher just loves him.  He is very quiet, but also very polite and really nice.  He is learning so much this year and is starting to read...amazing.


  1. Wow! What a great update about both kids. My son would love, love, love Jerry's TRex shirt. Thinking of you all and love the positive updates!
